It is lovely for couples who want to hide away in their villa or for families looking for beach time together.

Every one of the 66 stand-alone villas has its very own private infinity swimming pool in which to bask in the sun and hide from the other guests. There are villas in the tropical gardens, some on the beachfront, some with one bedroom and some with two. Every villa features satellite TV, CD/DVD player, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, bath robes, mosquito nets, personal safe, tea and coffee making facilities, broadband internet access, air-conditioning and overhead fans. On the deck outside, overlooking a private swimming pool, wicker chairs and day bed.

There are children’s activities arranged daily and babysitting is available too.

The Spa has 6 treatment pavilions, nestled amongst 2 hectares of beautiful gardens. Each luxuriously appointed pavilion leads directly onto a private garden with outdoor shower, bathtub and relaxation area. French therapist Jean MarcWeill has created an array of massages exclusively for the Spa at The Residence Zanzibar.
