Upendo Zanzibar

Upendo is a hip yet chic boutique beach resort on the island of Zanzibar that attracts the younger crowd. Modern luxury meets island tradition in a fusion of Eastern inspirations and Western classics.  The playful decor and laid back vibe hover artfully at the border of sophistication and relaxation. Upendo is barefoot chic – sip the specialty cocktails, recline on colorful cushions, sample fresh grilled lobster or an Indian-style thali, play in the sea view pool or relax in the hanging lounge beds…and forget you ever have to leave. Enjoy a lively, boozy brunch while listening to live music or a local DJ and soaking up the views. The well known Rock Restaurant sits in the ocean right in front of Upendo, so it’s fun to dine there one evening.

Upendo caters to a variety of guests from the discerning solo traveler to passionate newlyweds. Families and friends will also find the five-bedroom villa perfectly suited to their needs. Eat, play, rest and relax, and you will love Upendo as much as we do.
