With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

The Residence Overview

Renowned for its stunning rooms and expansive grounds, The Residence is a great choice for those looking for five-star luxury on the island of Zanzibar. Although the hotel itself has 66 luxury villas, it doesn’t feel like a huge property because each villas has so much space. The Residence sits on 32 hectares of tropical gardens and within the grounds are private swimming pools, an onsite spa, a beachfront infinity pool, a fitness centre, tennis court and many more. On top of this, the hotel is located in the southwest coast of Zanzibar which offers a beautiful white sand beach, fringed with coconut trees and tropical plants. There are various accommodation options to choose, including one and two-bedroom villas, with views of the ocean, garden or its own private pool. A stay in The Residence will not disappoint – the breath-taking views, the food served, the drinks prepared, and the smiles from the staff will all make your Zanzibar stay a memorable one.
