We arrived after a tired Safari and the Residence Hotel was the best choice. Every body has been kind and so welcoming with us; Mamazouri at the reception and the porters Edson (or Nelson) &Wilfried . The villa was very confortable with a lot space and storage. The view is just unbelievable!!! Every sun set stays in your mind for ever! The food is also very good, restaurant team professional and helpful, Martha and Jacqueline. We loved our journey in Residence Hotel. Also we arrived with stomach sickness and the Dr David helped us a lot. He came twice per fay to check and it was free!!! That is a very good service! Congratulations to every one!! We will come back!
A family n friends getaway
What an amazing island Zanzibar! And when you take a ride down south to The Residence, Kizimkazi, you enter into a different world, offering calm, peace in a natural habitat with luxurious villas. We planned the visit with a group of 3 families n friends. The resort has 66 spacious villas, beautifully curated ensuring the privacy one would expect on vacations! The staff was extremely courteous and hospitable, taking care of the guests. Restaurant Manager Preetam, Chef Arjun and Chef Sumesh, the staff Mechan n others, it all drives from the top with Aftab (Resort Management team) taking extra care of us. The food was the winner, all the 20 mins humpty drive to reach to the resort is very well taken care of by the quality n taste of the food served. Celebrating every evening with local music, dance n performances, ensured a close engagement with the guests. Its definitely a YES to endorse and recommend the readers here to explore and stay at this well crafted resort. An amazing place to sit and enjoy the birds chirping thru out the day! Well done Team The Residence! Thank you for making our stay memorable! I am enclosing some of the images I took, however, one needs to be there to experience The Residence natural beauty! Go explore!
My solo vacation
The residence Zanzibar is a place I would call home away from home , everything is perfect 👍. The food is delicious 🤤 and the workers great communication. Beautiful location for couple vacation and solo trips . Definitely coming back with my husband. The rooms are so spacious and the environment very clean
Could be better - not worth the price we paid.
Our overall experience was not as expected, we did not get a few things that we're promised by the hotel, the food could have been better and the maintenance of the hotel needs some attention specially if you pay the price, you expect something of high standard rather than chipped bath tub, missing tile in the pool and hot floating breakfast rather than cold eggs with small portion of bread and pastries. I wouldnt stay here again.
Perfect Family Getaway
The Residence Zanzibar is a perfect resort for a family getaway. A very well managed and maintained property. 32 hectors of lush green gardens and cycling paths along them….. A decent size private pool overlooking the ocean… and a massive beachfront infinity pool. To top it up, you have Chef Arjun and Mr Pretam (Restaurant Manger) along with their welcoming teams to serve you the best of the food. I would happily recommend this resort to friends and Family. Just one feedback, please ask the municipality to repair the approach road to the resort. Special thanks to Mr Aaftab.
