Guest Testimonial

Your company has done everything extremely well, from the first greeting on phoning initially to now having the booking process well underway. Ben Harrison's attention to detail has made this all a very enjoyable experience.

Set upon a picture perfect stretch of coral bright sand in Northern Zanzibar, Kilindi is spread across 50 acres of tropical garden and lies adjacent to the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Throughout the property Scandinavian minimalism is complemented by the dramatic architectural overtones of Middle Eastern heritage as the bright white domes of the Pavilions stand watch over the ancient dhow routes. The historic Stone Town, home to the City Market and Sultan's Palace Museum, is only a short distance away from the retreat.

Each of the 15 domed Pavilions afford their own private plunge pool and rainfall shower rooms, with traditional wooden shutters allowing the ocean breeze to gently permeate the room. Choose from one of the 13 Pavilion Suites or the Two Bedroom Pavilion comprising of two adjoining suites. All of the Pavilions feature a large outdoor terrace and courtyard garden and benefit from a dedicated private butler to tend to your every need.

The main Pavillion is home to a 25m infinity pool which affords spectacular views over the Indian Ocean where you can enjoy an evening sundowner in the cocktail bar complete with a cascading waterfall. Dining at Kilindi is a real treat for the senses as the award winning chefs serve up gourmet fare created from the property's organic garden, while other features of this luxury retreat include the Kilindi Spa which offers a range of 100% natural local treatments.
