There is a range of rooms on offer all of which combine contemporary luxury with Zanzibari elegance. The ocean front rooms provide breath-taking views of the ocean from every room, while the garden rooms are nestled amongst lush gardens and palm trees. The villas are all spacious and well-appointed and can suit a variety of group sizes.

Guests can explore the island on foot, or by bicycle which are provided for every guest at their villa.
