    First to Review

    For perfect stargazing nights and hot sunny days, The Residence embodies the exoticism and mystique of the castaway African Spice Island, Zanzibar. Secluded beachfront pool villas are set along vast white-sands and coconut palms. Villa bicycles encourage exploration of 80-acre grounds. The glass-walled infinity pool radiates sophistication whilst a full-service spa enhances total relaxation. My highlight is champagne picnic on the private pier, watching local women wade through shallows of the sea at low tide, picking seaweed.

Description

Made up of 66 villas sprinkled across 80 acres, this luxury resort expertly blends Indian, African and British influences into its unique style. Rooms are minimalist with mosquito-netted beds and free-standing tubs; guests are more spoiled with the outdoor perks like the private plunge pool and sweeping decks. Activities are focused near the water, ranging from kayaking to diving to simply lounging on the white sand beach. Other amenities include a spa, kids' club and restaurant serving international cuisine.
