The Library Bar

Guests will step back into colonial splendour and follow Dr Livingstone's journey. They can leaf through books; study ancient maps and enjoy the nostalgia of a bygone era whilst indulging in an old malt whisky or a more traditional aperitif.

The Dining Room Bar

Sophisticated, peaceful and unhurried, The Dining Room Bar gives a taste of old Persia with local wood and a hammered copper bar.

Sundown Special

Cocktails and canap's are served around the pool or on the Pontoon while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean.

The Pontoon

Walk along the 150-metre jetty perched upon the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. By day, it serves as a boathouse for pedal boats, kayaks, hobie cats and snorkelling excursions. At night time, the jetty turns into the perfect sunset lounge bar - a magical place, ideal for gazing out to the ocean beyond and admiring the amazing sunset.

The Spa

The Spa has 6 treatment pavilions, nestled amongst 2 hectares of beautiful gardens. Each luxuriously appointed pavilion leads directly onto a private garden with outdoor shower, bathtub and relaxation area. French therapist Jean Marc Weill has created an array of massages exclusively for The Spa at The Residence Zanzibar. All the beauty treatments have been entrusted to the luxury French cosmetic brand Carita.

Hair Spa & Hairdresser Pavilion

In a luxurious and relaxing pavilion, guests can experience hairdresser services. They can also benefit from high performing treatments at the Carita Hair Spa to obtain visible results thanks to Carita's amazing product innovations and dream formulas.

Ohashiatsu Pavilion

The Residence Zanzibar Spa is the first hotel spa in the world to provide the Ohashiatsu concept. More than a massage, this energy-based protocol created by Mr. Wataru Ohashi combines the use of acupressure points, exercise and an Oriental diagnosis to offer relaxation in a completely beneficial and holistic way.

The Dining Room

The Dining Room is decorated in cool, clean lines with a traditional Arab/African feel. The central restaurant offers international dishes with a hint of Zanzibar spice. Relaxed and casual in atmosphere, yet sophisticated in style, The Dining Room provides the perfect setting to enjoy breakfast, lunch or a star-lit dinner, cooled down by a tropical breeze. For breakfast, choose from a colourful array of tempting foods and drinks to begin the day with a healthy start. Alternatively, choose from a sumptuous buffet or from the la carte menu. Simple, light and relaxed, the lunch menu includes an extensive range of salads, sandwiches, pizzas and fresh fish followed by fresh fruits and light desserts. For dinner, a gastronomic journey awaits guests in The Dining Room, where you can enjoy local spices combined with European favourite mouth-watering dishes.

The Pavilion Restaurant

Re-creating the style and elegance of an Omani Palace, The Pavilion is decorated with large Oriental glassware; handmade stone jugs and hammered steel plates. The evening begins at sunset with some soft, traditional music while enjoying light mezze and spiced olives with an aperitif. Dinner is filled with the warmth and colours of Zanzibar and brings to life the very best of Middle-Eastern, Greek, Turkish and Mediterranean food. A feast for the eyes and mouth!

Beach & Poolside

For those who do not want to leave their lounger, lunch is delivered in a nice rattan basket. The menu includes a selection of salads, fresh seafood, fritters and pasta.

Themed Dinners

Every week, there will be themed dinners on the beach where guests can experience culinary delights from Zanzibar's multi-cultural heritage featuring African, Indian and Asian specialities.

In-Villa Private Dining

Available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy the elegant and refined experience of dining on their private deck (no extra cost for the delivery).
