Xanadu Villas opened on 1st June 2016 and has proved a very welcome addition to Zanzibar's luxury accommodation options. Six unique and beautifully designed villas surround a central pool and dining area engulfed by an oasis of tropical gardens and palm trees, just meters from the beach. Xanadu can be taken exclusively for up to 18 pax or the villas can be sold individually, allowing big family groups to have an extremely private and top-end retreat, while not pricing out the honeymoon couples on a budget. 

Xanadu is on the South East side of Zanzibar which is a great stretch of beautiful white sand, and they offer snorkelling, paddle boarding, sunset dhow cruises and a spa. Other activities such as diving or kite surfing are outsourced and can be arranged easily from Xanadu. 

The personal touch, intimate private villa atmosphere and level of service is where Xanadu excels, and coupled with a beautiful design and affordable rate, it is hard to beat. 



Xanadu is on the South East beach of Zanzibar just south of Baraza and The Palms. 

— Privacy and exclusivity
— Impressive architecture and an intimate, tropical setting
— Very high standard of service and cuisine

Villas start at $600 per night (two pax off peak) and go up to $2150 per night (four pax, peak season.) 

Exclusive Use: Between $4,500 per night and $7500 per night depending on number of pax and season. 

Zanzibar is a year round destination but it can rain heavily in April. February is the hottest month, and June to October is cooler and dry. Xanadu closes from 15th April until 30th May.

Xanadu is comprised of six uniquely designed private villas. Three villas have one bedroom and three villas have two bedrooms. Each villa has it's own plunge pool and beach access, as well as lounges and kitchens.  

No children under five.

Xanadu is approximately a one hour road transfer from Zanzibar airport and the historic Stone Town (65km.)
