About Elewana Collection - Kilindi Zanzibar

Kilindi Zanzibar is a rarity in the world of luxury boutique hotels. Originally designed for Benny Andersson, one of the members of the world famous Abba pop music group, Kilindi is a true blend of the very best of diverse cultures to be found in Tanzania and on the adjacent island of Zanzibar.

The concept behind Kilindi's original design was that of Scandinavian minimalism mixed with the dramatic architectural overtones so evident in Middle Eastern heritage. White wooden-slatted shutters embrace wide-arched glassless windows that afford spectacular views over the Indian Ocean. This open-to-nature approach to Kilindi's design provides the true essence of any stay.

Detailed interiors have now been added to subtly enhance those diverse cultural inferences, but without detracting from the 'barefoot appeal' of this traveller's paradise.

A falling water bar overlooks a large 25 m infinity pool which itself affords views out across the sparkling warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Dining takes place either on the alfresco terrace or even along the pristine white beach, which runs the length of the property.

Accommodation is offered in 15 eastern-style domed Pavilions nestling among a 50-acre tropical garden, and are the perfect and intimate retreats for each and every guest. The Pavilions each have their very own private plunge pool, and possess extraordinary wet rooms with radiance showers that truly give the feeling of being at one with nature. The interiors of Kilindi remain faithful to the past while contemporary features adorn the place.

With each Pavilion set in its own private tropical garden and served by a dedicated butler, privacy is guaranteed. The dedicated butler will offer you a wide selection of places to enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner. And should our guests wish to leave the oasis of tranquillity and calm of their private Pavilion, the butler can help, advise and arrange the many activities and excursions that Kilindi and the island offer.

Kilindi Zanzibar is certainly a rarity and one that will reward all those who venture to experience all that it has to offer. A favourite with honeymooners and lovers, any stay at Kilindi will become both the memory of a lifetime and a standard to surpass.

Spa: Tucked away in a peaceful corner of Kilindi’s tropical gardens we invite you to discover Kilindi Spa. The spa offers a range of treatments in a serene and elegant setting to improve well-being and enhance relaxation.
