Breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, traditional wooden dhows and Tumbatu Island can be seen across the sandy beach and from the T-shaped, 24 meter infinity swimming pool.

The main building is open at the front through archways to a terrace overlooking the beach. There is a spacious bar with a waterfall feature and an indoor/outdoor dining area. Dining options include romantic dinners on the beach and room service. The kitchen has an organic garden that provides ingredients for meals and an on-site smokery for local fish delicacies. Rainwater harvesting, solar energy, water treatment and recycling are further evidence of the hotel’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

Kilindi’s uShawari spa offers authentic pampering: skilled East African therapists use traditional techniques incorporating local herbs, oils and honey. Awarded the title Best for Beachside Beauty in BA’s High Life magazine in May 2009, a highlight is the opportunity to sip a post-treatment cocktail in a walled garden.

Elewana Afrika plan to enhance the guest experience at Kilindi with upgrades to services and facilities that will raise the property’s profile to even greater international acclaim. These enhancements include air-conditioning, an expanded selection of adventure and relaxation activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, spice tours and Jozani Forest and Stone Town tours. The resort is easily reached from Zanzibar airport, a scenic 50-minute drive.

Kilindi was included in the 2010 Condé Nast magazine Hot List of 134 Top New Hotels. The hotel was featured in the Travel+Leisure magazine 30 Romantic Dream Trips in February and was featured as one of Tatler magazine’s Best 101 Hotels in the World for 2010.

Rooms and Suites

Kilindi: Pavilion


Each pavilion consists of a comfortable shaded baraza seating area, sun deck, an enormous wet-room with rain-shower and two cooling plunge pools from which to soak in the views, one of which lies at the foot of the spacious bed to naturally cool the room in concert with the sea breezes. Logically-eco architecture allows the domed roofs, which deflect the heat of the sun, to harvest rain-water that is recycled into the bathrooms and gardens.
