Honeymoon from Australia”
The Residence is a beautiful property in a pristine location! We were spoilt rotten, and treated like royalty. We had been in South Africa for a week, a safari for a week in Tanzania and then the last 6-days was spent at the The Residence - and oh wow! What a way to finish... Cocktails, special candle light dinners, massages and more... we can never say thank you enough! We loved our time here!
The best beach resort we’ve been to”
From the moment we arrived we felt like we entered a different world. It was peaceful, luxurious and beautiful. The staff and facilities were amazing and the food was delicious and beautifully served. The grounds are really big and we had so much fun exploring it on the bikes provided with each villa. We definitely want to go back.
An Amazing Stay at an Amazing Place!”
We had the most amazing stay for 4 nights after a very busy honeymoon! The service at The Residence is unmatched! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warm and genuine smiles from their amazing staff. The villas are huge and beautiful! The bed is so comfy and the living room area is perfect for when you want to hang out in the room but not get in bed. The dining staff was so friendly and were a pleasure at each meal. We can not wait to visit again!
Blissful pool villa overlooking the ocean”
Wonderful staff throughout our stay - made to feel totally welcome, and anticipated our needs without being obtrusive. Excellent pool villa facilities and great breakfasts! Thoroughly recommend The Residence.
Amazing stay. Food is delicious with great choice. Staff is very friendly. Residences are beautiful.
Romantic and relaxing stay”
I stayed four nights with my boyfriend after doing a camping safari trip in the mainland, we immediately felt relaxed and comfortable in our sea view villa. The service of the hotel is great, staff greeted you with standard "how are you? How was your day?" After a few days it sounds like a routine, nevertheless we still appreciated a lot. They always fulfilled our requests quickly and made our stay perfect. We had a private dinner at the beach last night. It was quiet, romantic and unforgettable with a friendly staff serving us only. We would love to go back again.
amazing hotels. rooms are sapareted and privet”
The quality of 5 stars hotel as expected”
Beautifully refurbished as seen on the official picture. Private pool for the villa with sea view in front of it is the best part of the staying with the. The design of the main swimming is very smart in terms of the style and the practicality. For dinner, A La Carte and Buffet menu are both is available, and they are both excellent. It is just not any ordinary hotel food. They are just as good as any top restaurants. The services is good as expected for a five start hotel. Undoubtedly the beach for the location is not the best one in Zanzibar, but for someone who is looking for a beach view with the opportunity to see the sunset, with a lovely swimming pool, a quiet and exclusive atmosphere, top up with a excellent food, this maybe a hotel for those.
A week in paradise !”
Definitely a luxury hotel with elegant design, priceless intimacy, perfect staff. A beautiful place with beautiful people !
Vacances et détente en Tanzanie”
Les chambres (Villas) sont très spacieuses et bien équipées, équipements en bon état et variés, grande plage presque privatisée, bref un havre de paix pour une véritable détente. Mention spéciale pour le personnel très accueillant et qui a su faire de nos vacances un vrai moment de rêve.
Hôtel fantastique ”
superbe expérience dans cette hôtel qui était à la hauteur de nos attentes. La chambre est très spacieuse, nous avions une piscine privé qui était très agréable mais manquait d'une exposition au soleil. rien à redire à part le fait que ce soit un peu loin de tout sinon ravie de notre choix
Отличное место для романтического отдыха! ”
Красивейшие пейзажи и нетронутая природа! Большая территория отеля даёт возможность движения и прогулок на велосипедах, общения с местными животными и прогулок по длинному пляжу! Персонал очень дружелюбный и открытый! Очень рекомендую! Самый лучший сезон- февраль!
