Upendo Villa Shiva has been beautifully crafted by local craftsman (using local materials wherever possible). The roofs are made of woven palm leaves and the overall design is contemporary, making a wonderful compliment of two very different styles. Like the house, the furniture was designed by the owner and is made from coconut wood, with matting made by the local Woman’s Association in Stone Town. This all adds atmosphere and gives inspiring personal touches.

A small team looks after the guests. They help to make the retreat an unforgettable experience for those who stay there. The private staff includes: butler, housekeeper, gardener and security guard.
