Lodge Introduction by The General Manager
Blurring the line between private villa and boutique lodge, Xanadu provided a welcome addition to the island of Zanzibar, which is mostly characterised by large hotels and resorts. Just 7 gorgeous villas with unique architecture nestle in colourful tropical gardens around a central pool right on a wide stretch of white sand beach. Palm trees sway over double hammocks, and bright African-print cushions adorn cool beach decks over looking the turquoise Indian ocean. Xanadu embodies the exotic Zanzibari dream. The graceful Zambian owner, who might occasionally be seen wafting through to check everything is perfect, created Xanadu as a place she could breathe. It is intimate, luxurious, peaceful and elegant.
A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF OUR Lodge
Xanadu Villas opened on 1st June 2016 and has fast become the go-to for boutique luxury on Zanzibar. Seven unique and beautifully designed villas surround a central pool and dining area engulfed by an oasis of tropical gardens and palm trees, just a few meters from the ocean. Xanadu can be taken exclusively but usually the villas are sold individually to couples wanting romance and privacy. Xanadu is sophisticated and doesn’t encourage young families. Built on the South East beach of Zanzibar, Xanadu enjoys a great wide stretch of beautiful white sand that feels private. From Xanadu guests can snorkel, paddle board, kayak, go on a sunset dhow cruise and enjoy the spa. Other activities such as diving, kite surfing or island tours are outsourced and can be arranged easily by Xanadu’s manager.
