The Zanzibar Collection
The Zanzibar Collection is a collection of four family-owned hotels and resorts on Zanzibar’s south-east coast, which offer luxury and authenticity in equal measure.
Breezes Beach Club & Spa
Breezes is a true favourite at Imagine – it offers excellent value and has a simple but luxurious style and an authentic Zanzibari feel. With 70 rooms across three categories, Breezes is a medium-sized resort, but retains strong attention to detail and excellent personalised service. Set on a beautiful stretch of coastline, Breezes offers all the usual beach and sea-based activities, including a PADI diving centre, as well as an extensive range of other facilities. With its large swimming pool, indulgent spa, floodlit tennis court and excellent fitness centre right on site, it is the perfect base for couples and honeymooners alike to enjoy all the delights on offer on Zanzibar.
Baraza Resort & Spa
Baraza Resort is a fully inclusive boutique resort which offers a really luxurious experience. Comprised of just 30 villas which are dotted spaciously around the resort, Baraza employs a fusion of Arabic, Swahili and Indian design to create a truly unique and beautiful hotel, complete with elaborate arches, intricate hand-carved décor, striking antiques, handmade furniture and delicate brass lanterns. Baraza has a full set of facilities on site, including a pool, Frangipani spa, tennis court and fitness centre. Spend your days relaxing on the beach or taking part in a variety of watersports, before tucking into a delicious meal in one of the many beautiful dining venues.
The Palms is a much smaller and more intimate property, with just six luxury private villas, each with a large veranda and private plunge pool. Elegantly decorated in browns and creams with dark-grained wooden floors, The Palms’ villas ooze sophistication. Enjoy the exclusivity and privacy of staying in a small boutique retreat, with the added bonus of being able to use the more extensive facilities at both Breezes and Baraza. You can relax in the pool, indulge in a spa treatment or organise diving and other watersports all without leaving The Palms, but if you venture to one of the sister properties you can play a game of tennis or flex your muscles in the fitness centre.
Sitting atop a cliff, Zawadi Hotel is the newest addition to the Zanzibar Collection and comprises nine spacious villas all with private terraces and spectacular sea views. Not affected by the same strong tidal pattern that governs most of the island, guests at Zawadi can bathe in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean all day long. Snorkelling, diving and all the usual water-based activities can also be arranged at the hotel, or you can take the morning free shuttle to Baraza to use some of the facilities there. For those looking for the ultimate in relaxation, chill out in Zawadi’s large infinity pool or enjoy a massage in the comfort of your villa.
