Kilindi Zanzibar is situated on the northwest coast, approximately an hour’s drive from Stone Town and the airport. It is ideally located allowing easy access to the renowned Kendwa beach. This north coast accommodation is not your everyday type of hotel, making it a sought after honeymoon retreat and for those seeking a more laid-back, easy going, serene atmosphere with fabulous settings.
Scattered across over 50 acres of plush tropical gardens with a secluded beachfront spreading over 500m, the 15 eastern-styled Pavilion rooms offer guests an experience unlike any on the island. Originally designed for Benny Andersson, one of the members of the world famous Abba pop music group, the superb Zanzibar resort is a fusion of Scandinavian minimalism and the dramatic architectural nuances of the island’s Middle Eastern heritage.
The 15 Pavilions are incredibly voluminous and airy with large domed roofs which not only provide shelter from the sun but also work as part of the water recycling system used throughout the hotel. If it’s privacy you are after, then Kilindi is the place for you. Tactically placed among the foliage and spread far apart from each other, these rooms provides utter solitude.
Each pavilion boasts 2 private pools, a butler, as well as plenty of space to relax. The bathrooms are open plan with rain showers. Air conditioning and standalone fans ensure that the rooms are kept cool with the help of the innovative rain collection area underneath the pavilion and breezy location. The décor is simple yet comfortable.
Kilindi Zanzibar offers a 25m rim flow swimming pool which provides the perfect spot to watch the breath taking sunsets. There is also a bar and dining area as well as plenty of sitting areas for relaxing. The spa at this stunning boutique hotel in Zanzibar has wonderful vistas and features a double hamana suite where couples can enjoy a double massage followed by a private dinner on the terrace.
