Zawadi Hotel, Zanzibar

Lying in one of the most coveted locations on the island of Zanzibar, Zawadi Hotel defines the perfect luxury beach hotel. Providing you with breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean for as far as the eye can see, this intimate beach-chic resort with just nine villas is the ideal location for a spot of relaxation and rejuvenation in one of the world’s most tranquil destinations.


Located on the idyllic south east coast of Zanzibar, only an hour’s drive from the airport, the Zawadi Hotel is a dreamy spot to escape to. Positioned on the top of a cliff, the hotel offers you awe-inspiring views of the glittering Indian Ocean and situated next to a picturesque tranquil cove, you’ll be able to spend your days strolling along the luscious white sand beach and snorkelling straight from the beach to view a plethora of different underwater species.

Your Room
