Set among lush tropical gardens overlooking the glistening Indian Ocean and a private white-sandy beach, is the alluring and lavish Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar. The perfect lover’s hideaway and a premier boutique hotel on Zanzibar, Kilindi is perfect place to indulge in Zanzibar’s exotic island life. Lose yourself in a pristine and timeless world, steeped in a rich history and the ultimate romantic destination.

Recognizing the value of time well spent with family, loved ones and friends, the Elewana Collection introduces discerning travelers to East Africa through impeccably designed lodges that invite true relaxation, as well as the thrill of a real adventure. Complementing their locations in prime game-viewing areas, on quiet white-sand beaches or even in a coffee plantation, are lavish comforts, including fresh cotton sheets, elegant rooms and gourmet meals. Family-friendly, individually styled and exuding warm and personalized hospitality, the lodges are a savvy blend of high-class safari and low-impact tourism. Guests are encouraged to become part of the local community and conservation projects, thereby returning home with a piece of East Africa instilled in their hearts forever.

Accommodations

As romantic as they are opulent, the 15 spacious Pavilions boast private plunge pools with waterfalls, a domed bed chamber with a stained-glass skylight, a wet room with a rainfall shower and a private vantage point for drinking in views of the Indian Ocean, traversed by traditional dhows. Personal butler service attends to every whim.

Amenities

A main pavilion, with wide archways that capture refreshing sea breezes, boasts a spacious cocktail bar with an indoor/outdoor dining area. The Kilindi Spa offers a menu of treatments based on African natural ingredients, and an infinity swimming pool beckons day and evening. Round-the-clock power is on for lighting and charging needs, WiFi is available and complimentary mineral water is provided during meals and in guest rooms.

Activities

Beyond its picturesque private beach, the resort offers paddleboarding and kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, jetskiing and waterskiing, deep-sea fishing, catamaran and dhow sunset cruises and day trips to the Jozani Forest. Spice farm tours nod to Zanzibar’s past as an ancient trading post, where nutmeg, cloves, vanilla and pepper were (and still are) farmed. Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also nearby – time seems to stand still here, and the white-washed stone buildings, winding alleyways and local people are a testament to a bygone era of Arabic culture.

Dining

Dining is completely at your leisure, and may be arranged anywhere on the resort’s property – from romantic dinners on the beach or by the pool, among the gardens or in one’s Pavilion. The international menu – with a Swahili twist – boasts fresh seafood caught that day and produce from an organic garden. Meal times are completely flexible.

Location

Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar is located on the Northwest coast of Zanzibar. The Zanzibar Airport is a one hour and fifteen-minute drive from the resort. The resort coordinates are S 05˚45’34.00” E 39˚17’24.43”.
