Zanzibar’s Xanadu is a multi sensory feast in a truly idyllic location on the island’s southeast coast. The six exclusive private villas are all unique in their designs, exhibiting influences from across the Indian Ocean.
The architectural design of the villas is quite extraordinary; they unfurl like white shells. The Kimwondo Villa in particular looks as if it is stretching, dancing, and its windows are reminiscent of those in a cathedral. The rooftop terrace is the perfect platform for starlit dinners; the plunge pool is a treat in the heat of the day.
Stays at Xanadu are all inclusive and the culinary experiences are a delight. You will feast on fresh, sustainably sourced ingredients, which the imaginative chefs have crafted into mouthwatering dishes that are also true works of art.
Xanadu will be your base for adventures. Straight from the resort’s beach you can sea kayak, snorkel, and stand up paddle board. The cultural highlights of UNESCO-listed Stone Town are within easy reach, and you can also take excursions to spice farms, Prison Island, and the Jozani Forest.
