The location of this 5 star property is superb, right on the most magnificent stretch of beach at Kendwa on Zanzibar's north west coast. There is very little tidal movement so the amazing turquoise ocean is available for swimming all day. A combination of African and Arabic influences, elegant touches of Italian style and detail, and the hallmark gold and white dEcor theme permeate the resort - from the spacious and stylish rooms and suites to the funky bathrooms, stylish restaurants, relaxing bars and the Balinese style Spa.
Even your lunch can be served under the shade of your beach umbrella in your own private corner of paradise. Then move to the Ocean Dhow Bar for cocktails and a spectacular sunset.

Zanzibar-StonetownStone Town or Mji Mkongwe, in Swahili, is the old part of Zanzibar City, the capital of the island of Zanzibar, a part of Tanzania.
The town was the centre of trade on the East African coast between Asia and Africa before the colonization of the mainland in the late 1800s after which the focus moved to Mombasa and Dar es Salaam. The main export was spices and particularly cloves. For many years Stone Town was a major centre for the slave trade; Slaves were obtained from mainland Africa and traded with the Middle East.
Two large buildings dominate the main front of Stone Town. One is Beit-El-Ajaib or the House of Wonders, which was built by Sultan Seyyid Barghash as a grand palace for ceremonial purposes. The other is the Arab Fort which stands on the site of a former Portuguese settlement and was converted to a fort during the 18th Century.
It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors - there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.
