This is certainly the way to experience the island of Zanzibar! This luxury boutique hotel offers utter paradise on the north coast and was oiginally designed for Benny Andersson, one of the members of the world famous Abba pop music group... believe it or not.
It features Scandinavian minimalism mixed with dramatic architectural overtones of the island's Middle Eastern heritage. White wooden-slatted shutters embrace wide-arched glassless windows that afford spectacular views over the Indian Ocean.
Guests can stay in one of the 15 eastern-styled domed Pavilions which are situated in a 50-acre tropical garden and have their own private plunge pool and special radiance showers that give the feeling of being at one with nature.
The Main Pavilion consists of a falling water bar overlooking a large 25-metre infinity pool, from where you can look out over the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Dining takes place either on the alfresco terrace or on the beach. Guests can enjoy meals in the privacy of their own Pavilion, since each is set in a tropical garden and has its own dedicated Butler to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and whatever else you require. The Butler is also available to help, advise and arrange as to the many activities and excursions that Kilindi and the island can offer.
