Zanzibar Archipelago

Zawadi Hotel


Zawadi is the brand new addition to the portfolio of The Zanzibar Collection, joining the well-liked Breezes Beach Club, Baraza Resort and Spa and The Palms. A very private beachside resort, Zawadi offers tasteful seclusion and is particularly aimed at couples and small, adult-oriented groups.

Zawadi Tanzania Restaurant


Zawadi encompasses a large area given over to grounds full of tropical blooms and coconut palms. An infinity pool provides the centre-piece and is surrounded by sun loungers and has convenient access to the beach bar. Steps lead down to the hotel’s private cove and beautiful ocean-views, and there is even an outdoor gym. Its grounds are sufficiently expansive to accommodate a jogging track of nearly a kilometre. The feel spans local tradition and modern minimalism, always erring on the side of comfort and the classic.
Please note that unless the entire facility is booked by a single group the minimum age is 16.

Food & service

There are two venues for meals – the traditional thatched beach bar for lunch, a well-appointed, arch-roofed dining-room for breakfast and dinner – and a comfortable bar that opens especially for pre-dinner drinks and socialising.

Zawadi Tanzania Pool Chairs


Accommodations at Zawadi comprise six villas that, stretching out along the coast, all provide as much seclusion and privacy as is desired. Each has a private furnished veranda with clear and unimpeded views of the ocean. The very spacious and open rooms are pleasantly airy; the design here as in the dining-room is minimal yet classic, with painted furniture and painted wooden floors. Each is furnished with a large double bed and offers en-suite facilities including free-standing bath and rain-shower. There is also Wi-Fi, satellite TV, AC and a writing desk and chair with views out onto the Indian Ocean.


Activities include a range of water sports (including diving and snorkeling), spa and fitness, nature safaris and shopping and sightseeing trips into town.
