General Information

The resort, fringed by casuarina trees and set on a magnificent beach extending 500 metres, offers luxurious accommodations in 15 arched pavilion-style villas with unique domed roofs, spread across 54 acres of lush tropical gardens. Each stunning villa has two private plunge pools that are linked by water features and a waterfall. Two of the villas each have two bedrooms. 

Breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, traditional wooden dhows and Tumbatu Island can be seen across the sandy beach and from the T-shaped, 24 metre infinity swimming pool.

The main building is open at the front through archways to a terrace overlooking the beach. There is a spacious bar with a waterfall feature and an indoor/outdoor dining area. Dining options include romantic dinners on the beach and room service. The kitchen has an organic garden that provides ingredients for meals and an on-site smokery for local fish delicacies.

Kilindi’s spa offers authentic pampering where skilled East African therapists use traditional techniques incorporating local herbs, oils and honey. Awarded the title Best for Beachside Beauty in BA’s High Life magazine in May 2009, a highlight is the opportunity to sip a post-treatment cocktail in a walled garden.

Kilindi was included in the 2010 Condé Nast magazine Hot List of 134 Top New Hotels. The hotel was featured in the Travel+Leisure magazine 30 Romantic Dream Trips in February and was featured as one of Tatler magazine’s Best 101 Hotels in the World for 2010.


Kilindi is located in a private location on a sweeping bay on the north west coast of Zanzibar. It is one hour from Stone Town and is 1 kilometre from the nearest hotel.
