Kilindi Zanzibar, comprising of a series of white-domed Pavilion guest rooms all set in 35 acres of lush tropical gardens, is a rarity in the world of luxury boutique hotels. Originally designed for Benny Andersson - one of the members of the 1970's pop group ABBA - Kilindi is a true blend of the very best of diverse cultures to be found in Tanzania and on its adjacent island of Zanzibar.

Kilindi achieves the perfect marriage between Scandinavian minimalism and the dramatic architectural overtones of Middle Eastern heritage, whilst encouraging an open, 'back-to-nature' ambiance throughout.

A 'waterfall' bar with the Main Pavilion overlooks a large 25-meter infinity pool which itself affords views out across the sparkling warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Dining takes place either on the alfresco terrace or even along the pristine white beach, which runs the length of the property.

Pavilions at Kilindi

In each of the Pavilion Suites featuring a private plunge pool and rainfall shower, white wooden-slatted shutters embrace wide-arched glass less windows each affording spectacular views over the Indian Ocean. This same openness allows the gentle ocean breeze to waft throughout each of the rooms and carry with it an exceptional soundtrack of Zanzibar's colorful fauna. With sights and sounds gifted by such creatures as the indigenous red colobus monkeys and the ever-present and ever-busy yellow weaver birds, any stay at Kilindi will be a delight for the senses.

With each Pavilion set in its own private tropical gardens and served by a dedicated butler, privacy is guaranteed. It is this same dedicated butler who will offer you a wide selection of places to enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner. And should our guests wish to leave the oasis of tranquility and calm of their private Pavilion, the butler can help, advise and arrange as to the many activities and excursions that Kilindi and the island can offer.

The Kilindi Spa

Tucked away in a peaceful corner of Kilindi’s tropical gardens is the Kilindi Spa reflecting its picturesque island setting and inspired by the natural elements. The spa offers a range of treatments in a serene and elegant setting to improve well-being and enhance relaxation.

The spa uses Africology skin care products that have been developed to revitalize the skin and prevent damage done to the skin by free-radicals, stress and the African climate. Africology makes use of the healing essences of some of South Africa’s indigenous plants. The active ingredients in our skin care products are valuable in the repair process and assist with the restoration of damaged skin tissue. You can never be too young to start this preventative process.
