Zanibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa


Paja, Tanzania

Once tethered firmly to the African mainland, the island known as Zanzibar and its breakaway smaller islands dramatically wrenched itself from the Tanzanian shores into the Indian Ocean before the dawn of man, millenia ago. Zanzibar’s mystique began with the phenomena of the archipelago’s geologic creation, its future in history destined to become a haven for traders bringing spices and goods from the Far East to Africa and Europe, and a port for slave traders headed to America. Shrouded in secrets and mysteries, sultans and sailors, fishermen and fortune seekers, Zanzibar has now become a favorite destination of tourists seeking the tranquil natural beauty of sparkling white sand beaches, the playground of warm ocean waters, waving palms, and the wafting scents from spice plantations carried on gentle ocean breezes. Its shores welcome travelers before they set out on a safari to discover Tanzania’s beautiful wildlife in the amazing Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, sail Lake Tanganyika, or see the site of Louis Leakey’s famed discoveries of earliest human life. Zanzibar is a gateway to adventures in East Africa and a wonderful place to relax at the end of your travels.

Our most recent discovery in Zanzibar is the dazzling Zanzibar White Sand Five Star Luxury Villas and Spa, a boutique retreat where guests are indulged in a spacious private villa with pool set in a lush garden with a personal butler tending to your needs and an amazing separate living area for friends and family to gather, relax, eat, and enjoy. Zanzibar White Sand presents the ultimate in luxury and comfort within each secluded villa and throughout the beachfront setting, perfect for a romantic getaway, a family holiday, or a gathering of friends.

A fabulous spa experience awaits at The Senses where the lush greenery creates an oasis of privacy spa bungalows for your chosen treatment surrounding a large hot tub for total relaxation. Pamperings include a menu of massage choices, scrubs, facials, mani-pedis, and choice of bungalow or beachfront setting. Follow the winding paths upward to the beautifully designed restaurant for fine dining breakfast to dinner. Its name, Doors to Zanzibar, a perfect description of its cuisine and open air design overlooking the terrace with a large pool and kid’s pool dotted with sun loungers and umbrellas. The meals are tantalizing and first class with all locally sourced ingredients and spice perfection, from the generous breakfast buffet, to luscious salads, to the fresh fish and favorite meat and vegetarian dinner selections. The rooftop champagne and cocktail bar is perfect for romantic sunset views and tasty appetizers to begin your evening, and to return for a relaxing cocktail under star-filled skies. The beach is just steps away from your villa, the water warm, clear, and inviting, the beach bar welcoming, and activities from volleyball, kite- and windsurfing, paddleboards, sailing, snorkeling, and lounging fill your day. Enjoy a game of pool, ping pong, a gym workout, tennis court, or an invigorating jog on the beach. Free bicycles are also available. The concierge will book excursions to one of the lovely spice plantations or to historic Stone Town and arrange a guide, suggest restaurants, and book boat tours of nearby islands.

Zanzibar White Sand presents a selection of 15 stylishly appointed one and two bedroom villas. The two story villa is contemporary, airy and air conditioned. Its winning design consists of two extremely spacious guest rooms perfect for family or friends. Five Star amenities include workspace, Wifi, outdoor bath and shower, additional child’s bed or crib and high chair. Plush luxury describes the ensuite designer bathrooms, towels, beds and linens.

Divine comfort, relaxation, fine dining, and play define your villa stay at Zanzibar White Sand, with personal friendly service all tucked within beautiful natural surroundings.

Much of the legendary history of Zanzibar has been preserved and continues to intrigue tourists. Modern incursions have brought changes in the rhythm of daily life in the small villages and farm communities, but the vibrant culture remains, viewed most prominently in the bustling maze of narrow streets and behind the walls of homes, shops, mosques, and schools in ancient Stone Town. Zanzibar’s rich culture is on full display in the bustling colorful markets where locals and tourists come together in the exuberance of the sights and sounds, tastes and smells of the island. The fish market is a raucous display of the daily catch; the spice market is a hypnotic blend of aromas presented in bulky burlap sacks and convenient small packets for tourists; colorful displays of bountiful fresh produce overflow. There is a separate meat market sure to inspire new vegetarian converts, and a further area of household goods, fabrics, clothing, souvenirs and art galleries.
