Sun-drenched seclusion in spacious villas on the Zanzibar coast.
The description paradise island could have been coined for Zanzibar. Crystal-blue waters, fine white sand beaches, beautiful sunshine from an endless bright blue sky, and the shade of swaying palms as you recline in your hammock. So it takes something special to stand out on the Spice Island, but the multi-award winning White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa delivers.
There are only 11 villas dotted across the huge area, meaning you can spend your entire stay in blissful seclusion if you like. The smallest of the villas is 500 square metres, surrounded by lush gardens, while the top-end spots have their own beaches, private pools and jacuzzi baths. This five-star experience isn’t costing the earth though – White Sand grows their own fruit and vegetables and get much of their power from solar energy.
If you can drag yourself from your hammock, there’s plenty to do too. White Sand is on Paje beach, with some of the world’s best kitesurfing – and the resort even has its own kitesurfing school. Or, for something a little less strenuous, head out on an African dhow to spot dolphins in the local waters. When evening comes and it’s time to relax, you can head to the rooftop champagne bar for cool drinks as the warm sun sets over the ocean.
