Kilindi Zanzibar


Nestled in a tropical garden along a secluded beachfront on the north-west coast of Zanzibar


Kilindi Zanzibar is nestled on 50 acres of lush tropical gardens and offers an unforgettable getaway experience. Kilindi, which was originally designed for Benny Andersson, one of the members of the 1970s pop group ABBA, is a true fusion of the best of Tanzania's and Zanzibar's diverse cultures. Kilindi achieves the ideal balance of Scandinavian minimalism and the dramatic architectural overtones of Middle Eastern heritage, all while inspiring an open, 'back-to-nature' atmosphere throughout. Facilities and amenities include an indulgent Spa, along with the Main Pavilion which features a 'waterfall' bar that overlooks a large 25-metre infinity pool with views of the dazzling Indian Ocean. Dining can be done on the alfresco terrace or on the pristine white beach that runs the length of the property.


White wooden-slatted shutters embrace wide-arched glassless windows in each Pavilion suite, providing spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. The same openness allows the gentle ocean breeze to billow through the rooms, bringing with it the delightful soundtrack of Kilindi's colourful birdlife. Any stay at Kilindi will be a sensory delight. The Pavilion Suites have their own private plunge pool and extraordinary 'rainfall' shower rooms that truly provide the liberating sensation of being at one with nature. The windows are glassless, with traditional wooden shutters that allow the sea breeze to flow throughout the room.

Luxury Pavilion Suites

Each of the 15 pavilion-styled suites is nestled amidst tropical vegetation. The luxury suites offer a terrace, a private plunge pool and an open-air living area. The bathroom features his and her vanity wash basins, a toilet, and stunning views of the surrounding nature.
