Zanzibar

Kilindi, Zanzibar

Wonderfully positioned on the north-west coast of Zanzibar (an hour from Stone Town), in a sweeping bay with 500 metres of power white sand beachfront, Kilindi is one of the best examples of authentic luxury eco-chic to hit Zanzibar’s shores in recent years. Architecturally, it is unlike anywhere else on Zanzibar. Originally designed for Benny Andersson of Abba fame, there’s no mistaking the hint of Scandinavian minimalism which pervades the barefoot back-to-nature ambience of this intimate Zanzibari hideaway. Spread across 50 acres of lush tropical gardens, Kilindi has 15 eastern-styled white-domed Pavilions complete with highly polished floors, cool cream colours, white wooden-slatted shutters and long glassless windows which bring the outside in and pay tribute to the mesmerising ocean that has witnessed the spice trade route for over 500 years.

Sleep  

The Pavilions are carefully spaced apart to ensure privacy and each has its own private garden, a plunge pool and an extraordinary annexed ‘rainfall shower’ wet room which boasts unimpeded views across the warm turquoise waters (save for the odd swaying palm tree). Inside, the uncluttered interiors remain faithful to Zanzibar’s heritage. The open design allows the gentle sea breezes to waft through, carrying with them, the soundtrack of the island’s wildlife – notably the indigenous red colobus monkeys and the ever-busy yellow weaver birds.

Eat  

Each Pavilion is served by a dedicated butler who will familiarise you with Kilindi’s ‘whenever, wherever’ philosophy which enables you to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in a variety of locations. Watch the sunset from a private table on the beach or sit atop the Main Pavilion on an alfresco terrace. The innovative cuisine is much acclaimed and rightly so. Fresh produce is grown in Kilindi’s herb and vegetable gardens or sourced locally and there are no buffets here! What’s more, your stay is all-inclusive (excluding premium brand drinks). The Main Pavilion houses a special Shisha Lounge and Kilindi’s unique Falling-water Bar – a sleek cocktail bar which looks out across the large 25 metre infinity pool to the dazzling Indian Ocean beyond. The creative house cocktails are not to be missed!

Pamper & Play  

And last but not least! Kilindi has am intimate spa tucked away amongst the fauna and flowers in the garden. Inspired by its setting, treatments use award-winning Africology products designed to relax and rejuvenate the body and soul! And when you’re not being pampered, numerous excursions and activities are available including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, sunset dhow cruises, Spice Farm visits, Stone Town walking tours and dolphin spotting in Kizimkazi.

Honeymoons

Each of the 15 Pavilions are private and romantic, with their private gardens and plunge pools but for that additional privacy, we recommend you request villa 15!
