Kilindi opened in 2009 and in its first year of operation has established a reputation as the top hideaway in Zanzibar. The resort, fringed by casuarina trees and set on a magnificent beach extending 500 metres, offers luxurious accommodations in 15 arched pavilion-style villas with unique domed roofs, spread across 54 acres of lush tropical gardens. Each stunning villa has two private plunge pools that are linked by water features and a waterfall.

Two of the villas each have two bedrooms.

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 metre infinity swimming pool.

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.
