Zawadi is the newest property of the Zanzibar Collection to make its mark on Zanzibar’s East coast. Compared to its sister properties, Zawadi is much more modern and sleek in terms of its architecture, design and interior. The nine private villas are all very neutral and elegant, surrounded by well-kept gardens and vistas of the Indian Ocean. A great choice for those looking for something contemporary whilst enjoying facilities such as all-inclusive food and drink, watersports and a private spa on site!


Zawadi sits next to its sister properties – Baraza, The Palms and Breezes’ Beach Club – and so benefits from being on one of the best beaches on the island. The infinity pool overlooks the Indian Ocean and taking a few steps down, you will arrive at the white-sand beach. At low tide, the small cove allows you to swim in the ocean and explore the beach but it also means that the beach is not as wide or expansive as other beaches on the island.


Zawadi has a total of nine private villas which are located either side of the pool and main area. The Zanzibar Collection have fantastic facilities throughout their properties and Zawadi is no different. With an infity pool, a white-sand beach, beautiful tropical gardens, a relaxing spa, a natural gym including a 900-metre long jogging trail, chin up bars, benches, monkey bars and weights!


The villa interior is very modern, featuring neutral coloured walls and elegant, textured accessories and fabrics to compliment. The rooms are well-appointed: the bedroom and lounge area is all open-plan, the en-suite bathrooms are large and feature rain shower and a free-standing bath and the sunbathing chairs on the veranda invite you to relax with views out to the Indian Ocean. To top it all off, each villa has effective air conditioning for when the heat gets a little too much!
