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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
