Zanzibar Retreats was formed by Claudia Batschari and Richard Boome, following a memorable trip to the Spice Islands in 1998. Our love of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia Islands has been strengthened over the years, as we are drawn back time and again to the magic of the Spice Islands.
We have personally selected all the properties on this website, for their charm and exclusivity.
We’ve also negotiated excellent rates on your behalf. For this reason, we can confidently guarantee that our rates are the lowest you will find anywhere (and this includes booking.com, etc.!)
Being a small company, we pride ourselves on offering highly personalized service. We recognize the unique character of our clients, and we always do our best to match them with the perfect property… in terms of style, budget and atmosphere. See our Guest Reviews
We welcomed Victoria Charters to our team in 2018. Victoria has spent over 2 years on Mnemba Island, and has a great passion for Zanzibar! She loves to travel and scuba dive (with a special interest in Ocean Conservation)… and her experience in dealing with discerning guests will ensure that you’re in great hands!
