Wandering through paradise: exquisite Kilindi Zanzibar

Kilindi Zanzibar-01-1 Kindesign

Kilindi Zanzibar is a romantic hideaway surrounded by lush tropical gardens, enjoying a gorgeous secluded setting on the northern tip of Zanzibar, in East Africa. Designed by Neil Rocher in conjunction with some long-serving Tanzanian specialists, the luxurious open-plan design allows cool sea breezes to flow through the spacious summerhouse-style pavilions. Each stunning villa boasts an intimate domed bedchamber with stained glass skylight, two plunge pools linked by patio areas and a waterfall, and an excellent all-day butler service.

Each of the pavilions has been designed with careful thought, crafted to maximize the light and space, drawing the eye towards the impeccable views, rather than the knick-knacks inside. The domes have been designed to collect rainwater, the sleeping areas straddle its storage, and the pools circulate it. The retreat also uses solar power, a state-of-the-art water treatment plant that recycles waste water for re-use in the toilets and gardens. The resort also uses fresh locally grown produce and operates a profit share initiative with local community partners.

Rates from $585 per night, from here.

Relax on the quiet sandy beach or beside the infinity swimming pool and enjoy breathtaking views of Tumbatu Island and traditional wooden dhows bobbing in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Diving, snorkelling and dolphin-spotting trips can be arranged, as can excursions to the national parks and to Stonetown, around an hour’s drive away.
