Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island, the beautiful island of Zanzibar on Africa’s east coast is bursting with culture and history, seemingly at odds with its idyllic geography of white-sand beaches with palms swaying lazily in the sea breeze. Together this makes Zanzibar a fabulous place to explore as well as a dream to relax and unwind.
Discover sheer, unpretentious paradise on a private island with only a handful of guests and staff. While the dazzling sands and brilliant sunshine invite you to spend idle hours on shore, magnificent coral reefs create an underwater wonderland that lures you to explore the warm, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Scores of world-class snorkeling and diving sites form a gateway to a world of incredible sea creatures. The romantic island of Mnemba is also renowned as the breeding ground for the highly-endangered green turtle. Enjoy tranquil dhow cruises, exhilarating afternoons of windsurfing and fly-fishing and, at the end of heavenly day, tuck into deliciously fresh seafood.
