Zanzibar White Sand Villas is a small and understated 11 villa luxury resort located on Paje Beach on the East Coast of Zanzibar offering stunning villas with private spaces and pools.

The resort consists of 11 villas each with one, two or five bedrooms, private outside space and small swimming pool. There are also four Cinnamon rooms which are set up as more traditional hotel rooms without the private outside space or swimming pool. The rooms and villas have a contemporary yet understated Scandinavian themed design.

Amenities include a swimming pool, restaurant, bars, spa, a children’s playground and a luxury kite surfing centre (Paje Beach is a kite surfing hot spot between June 15th to September 15th and from December 15th to March 15th). The resort can organise various tours including dhow snorkelling trips, dolphin watching and Stone Town. Scuba Diving is available at the Breezes Beach Club Rising Sun Dive Centre 10 minutes drive North up the Coast. The resort is family owned but is affiliated to the prestige Relais & Chateaux collection.

As with all resorts on the East Coast (and the South and West Coasts), there is a large tidal range and at low tide the Ocean drops back out to the coral reef which is around 1km offshore, making ocean swimming impossible at low tide. The advantage is that the water tends to be crystal clear and fabulous for bathing at mid - high tide. And as with all of Zanzibar, the beach here is public. Snorkelling is possible, but only on a boat trip.

Zanzibar White Sand Villas will appeal to families as they have the two bedroom family units, but please do note, the bedrooms are spread over two floors and in our opinion are not suitable for families with younger children who could climb between the railings on the rustic style stair banister and balcony.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
