The Residence Family Holidays

If an exotic journey to this intriguing spice island is top of your family’s holiday wish list, but you are hesitant about straying too far from Western indulgences, then this might just be your ideal choice!

Why The Residence is perfect for families

Each of the 66 villas has generous outdoor space with a private pool. The furnishings reflect the island’s cultural mix of African, Omani, British and Indian heritage.

  • Complimentary bicycles encourage families to explore the forested grounds.
  • The Boat House has pedal boats and kayaks and there are five dive sites between 30 minutes to an hour away. Kite surfing, deep sea fishing and dhow excursions to a Personal butlers ride around on traditional tricycles with a large rattan trunk carefully poised on the front.
  • You can board a traditional sailing dhow from The Residence jetty and enjoy an opportunity to swim with the bottlenose and humpback dolphins!
  • The Kids Club mascot, Lila the donkey, is proving a real hit! Children can play hide and seek amongst the palm trees, compete in volleyball tournaments or even learn Swahili! Whilst the kids are being entertained, parents can indulge in some down time at the resort’s star attraction, The Spa, which enjoys its own stunning five acre setting!
  • Food-loving families can discover the art of the Spice Island’s traditional cookery techniques on one of The Residence Zanzibar’s culinary workshops
