It is more than just a luxury holiday in Zanzibar, it is an all-encompassing experience, a holistic journey from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. 

The nine stunning beachfront villas honour the cultures of the island, with rich fabrics and bronze lanterns a nod to its spice island Arab history, while beautiful, thatched roofs and striking artwork pay homage to its African heritage.
