Description, Services & Facilities

DiningRoom
The Residence Zanzibar is one of the largest luxury resorts in Zanzibar and is considered one of the leading hotels of the world. Tucked within 32 hectares of tropical gardens, the hotel is situated on the south west coast of Zanzibar, just off the coast of Tanzania, and offers a collection of African-Omanai influenced villas. Unwind on a sun lounger on a kilometre of coconut palm lined beach, head out into the Indian Ocean on a dolphin safari or relax with a Ohashiatsu massage at the Spa nestled within a beautiful Japanese garden. The Residence Zanzibar is conveniently set just 55 minutes from the capital, Stone Town, and close to the fishing village of Kizimkazi.
