Our handpicked luxury lodges, villas and resorts on the North Coast of Zanzibar…
Zanzibar’s North Coast is centred around the town of Nungwi, which is traditionally the centre of Zanzibar’s dhow-building industry, but has gained a reputation as a crowded tourist hub in recent years.
Kendwa, which is 3km south of Nungwi, is far more serene… and has a magnificent, wide, sandy beach that is unaffected by the tides… making it the best swimming beach in Zanzibar!
The North’s proximity to Mnemba Island also makes it one of the best diving and snorkelling destinations in Zanzibar, and the deep-sea fishing is excellent here too.
Accommodation on the North Coast is dominated by large beach resorts, of which Zuri and Gold Zanzibar are two of the best, but our favourite (smaller) resort remains Kilindi… which offers unparalleled privacy and service to it’s discerning guests.
Milele Villa is located close to Kendwa Beach, and is one of the finest private villas on Zanzibar’s North Coast.
The fabulous Zuri Zanzibar is a large luxury resort, perfectly located on Kendwa Beach… which is renowned for it’s swimming (there’s no tidal impact) and amazing sunsets!
Kilindi is a stunning private boutique resort on Zanzibar’s famous north coast, and offers 15 beautifully designed and very private domed ‘pavilions’ overlooking the ocean.
Essque Zalu Zanzibar
The stylish Essque Zalu Zanzibar is well located on the north coast, just 10 minutes drive from the buzz of Nungwi, and offers excellent privacy and world class facilities.
Gold Zanzibar is a large, stylish resort situated directly on Kendwa’s famous beach… which is unaffected by the tides and therefore ideal for swimming at any time!
Milele Villas are situated just 15 minutes away from Nungwi and Kendwa, and your own personal car is included in the rate!
