On an exclusive island just 4.5km off the north eastern coast of Zanzibar, the 10 rustic (but utterly luxurious) palm fronted bandas of Mnemba Island Lodge are hidden in the shade of a tropical forest fringed by a soft white sand beach. Surrounded by spectacular coral reefs, the lodge has easy access to some of East Africa's best snorkeling and dive sites.
Set on a beach of pure white sand, Constance Aiyana is a stylish and tranquil paradise on Pemba Island in the northern reaches of the Zanzibar archipelago. This gorgeous tropical destination is the perfect beach-break setting. Enjoy barefoot luxury in one of this hideaway's 30 fantastic villas as you slip into the relaxing pace of life here, where sublime scenery, pristine beaches and incredible cuisine are the orders of the day. Situated just south of the equator, temperatures on the Zanzibar archipelago average between 24°C and 27°C throughout the year.
This intimate new Zanzibar all-villa boutique hideaway has glorious ocean views and is just for adults. With just 9 spacious, luxury villas dotted along the beach in one of Zanzibar's most sought-after settings, Zawadi does away-from-it-all luxury perfectly. It's exclusive but laid-back, where the décor is understatedly elegant and delicious dining and personalised service top the priority list. Situated so close to the equator, Zanzibar enjoys lovely year-round holiday weather.
Baraza has fantastic views over the fine white sands and coral reefs of the eastern shore. When you're not exploring the beaches, you can start your day with an invigorating yoga session or perhaps a relaxing treatment in the fabulous spa. The hotel is a wonderful fusion of design influences, with sweeping arches, intricate hand-carved décor and handmade furniture; traditional brass lanterns adorn the villas creating a soft, romantic light. The 30 spacious villas at Baraza are airy yet intimate, with expansive terraces for relaxing and private plunge pools, perfect for reclining with a favourite cocktail.
Lots of people like to combine chilling on the beach in Zanzibar with a safari adventure further inland in Tanzania. In fact, our most popular option is our 12 night Classic East Africa Safari. It's a luxury tailor-made safari combining Tanzania's Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater with Kenya's Masai Mara - we can happily adapt it to suit you and it's easy to add on a few nights at the start or the end of your safari in Zanzibar.
