Kilindi Zanzibar


Barefoot romance

On the northern tip of Zanzibar, looking west over the Indian Ocean for spectacular sunsets, Kilindi Zanzibar is a romantic barefoot retreat hidden amid tropical gardens.

Scandi minimalism meets the island's Middle Eastern heritage in Kilindi’s 12 domed villas, each with its very own private plunge pool, fabulous rainfalls showers and cooled by the breeze. A dedicated guest ambassador is on hand to arrange dining locations and activities such as diving and cultural experiences should you wish to venture out of your sanctuary.

Shared areas include a rather spectacular infinity pool by the white sand beach, a bar and a spa that combines natural African ingredients with modern treatments.
