The eagerly awaited and brand new Zawadi Hotel enjoys one of the very best locations on the island of Zanzibar. Built on a cliff and overlooking a very coveted stretch of Indian Ocean on the South East coast of Zanzibar. Part of the renowned Zanzibar Collection, Zawadi is situated a 2-minute drive north of the rest of the collections prestigious luxury properties (Baraza, Palms and Breezes)
Palms and Bougainvillaea make up the tropical setting of this intimate, private and best described as driftwood beach style meets elegant retreat. Just nine, 100 sqm villas ensure guests are never crowded and enjoy the highest levels of exclusivity and luxury.
One of the wow factors of Zawadi are the views. In the centre of the property, the cliff retreats creating a beautiful cover of the pristine white sandy beach. Unlike many hotels that have the tidal impact where the ocean retreats, on Zanzibar you can swim here all day in the warmest of tropical waters, and snorkel straight from the beach.
This new boutique resort offers intimacy, and excellent levels of service, wonderful cuisine and all the luxuries you would expect from a Zanzibar Collection property. In addition, there is a beautiful swimming pool, an ocean view pool bar, an elegant dining room, and the only PADI 5* Gold Palm and National Geographic Dive Centre on Zanzibar Island.
Located on the untouched South East coast of the island, the dive centre was the first to discover this unexplored region. Taking only a maximum of 6 divers at a time here you have a chance to escape the crowds, slip under the warm surface to the wonders below. Because of its unique location, there is always water in front of Zawadi. Daily snorkelling trips to the shallow Oba-Oba lagoon are home to an incredible variety of small marine life and beautiful corals.
As if this is not enough they also have Thai and Balinese therapists who offer sublime massage and spa treatments in the comfort of your own villa. Work off the incredible cuisine on their 900-meter nature fitness running trail that winds gently through the tropical vegetation. At regular intervals, there is chin up bars, benches, monkey bars and a special set of weights available for a complete exercise program! From the trail, a staircase leads down to the beach for a refreshing swim.
At Zawadi, they have literally thought of it all in a unique way. The result is stunning.
