Located at the northern tip of Zanzibar, Kilindi is a gorgeous property with stunning rooms, excellent food and tropical gardens with fragrant flowering trees. It’s a bit of a walk to get to the beach, but the amazing views and access to the sea breeze make the extra distance worth it! The local beach is also one of the more secluded stretches on the entire island; world-class snorkeling and diving is also available nearby.
The 13 pavilion-style villas each have their own private plunge pools and sea views. The main areas contain a large pool and a fun hookah lounge. The property is very open and spread out, always conveying a sense of exclusivity. The downside of this is that the openness can welcome bugs. Despite the beautiful villas and excellent service, this lodge isn’t for everyone. It’s perfect for the romantic and the adventurous – think honeymooners sleeping under the stars!
