Luxury Hotels Group has added to its portfolio the little known exotic African retreat on Zanzibar’s west coast in Tanzania, Zanzi Resort. Spread over six hectares of lush grounds beside the Indian Ocean, the resort has just seven secluded villas. Each of the bright spacious villas is sea facing, having private pools with thatched gazebos for shade. The cliff top villas also have their own private beaches. The high privacy element has made it very popular with honeymooners or those seeking to be left alone.
The eco-friendly Zanzi Resort has used only locally sourced materials for its villas. All vegetables are grown in the expansive property, and seafood is sourced straight from the ocean. Zanzi Resort’s distinguished villas are already award winning (best ecologically responsible property 2015, Safari Awards) and it is currently positioned first in Tripadvisor’s Zanzibar hotel ratings.
Ms Gosia Piotrowicz, Sales and Marketing Manager of Zanzi Resort said: “We decided to join Luxury Hotels Group because we wanted to reach a wider audience interested in the unique style of luxury accommodation we offer. Luxury Hotels Group seemed perfect for us. We’ve only just started working together, but we are already very enthusiastic about our partnership.” Ms Bernadette Koltai, Luxury Hotels Group’s Vice President, said: “This is an exciting addition to our portfolio and we’re thrilled to be working with Zanzi Resort. It’s a great example of what we know appeals to the modern luxury traveller in that it really is one of a kind, offering individuality, a distinct character and a real sense of place – attributes you rarely find with branded resort hotels.”
