"This is the best hotel we have stayed by far - their villas are beautifully designed and very well maintained. Their service is impeccable - our butler 'Halfan' (Alfi) was very nice and made us extremely comfortable during our stay. He (working along with the chef) surprised us every day with different types of vegetarian food options. Our housekeeper Janeth's room decorations everyday was very sweet as well. We were there for celebrating our wedding anniversary and the staff made efforts above and beyond to make us feel special by writing personal notes everyday, Janeth decorating our room with flowers, Alfi arranging a wonderful roof top dinner with a surprise cake for us! Our villa had amazing views of the beach, with two plunge pools which are ideal to spend the entire day gazing at the blue green waters, fisherman boats with their evening rituals, and ending with an amazing sunset. We could enjoy all these views from the villa's open bathroom as well! Beach was minutes away from our villa. The water and sand are beautiful. We were amazed by the receding water levels in the ocean every evening. We were very sad to leave Kilindi and hope to come back again!"

Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar
Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar is comprised of a series of white-domed Pavilion guest rooms all set within 50 acres of lush tropical gardens. This is a rarity amongst the world of luxury boutique hotels.
This venue was originally designed for Benny Andersson, one of the ABBA members. Elewana Kilindi is a true blend of the very best of diverse cultures to be found in Tanzania and on its adjacent island of Zanzibar.
The suites are completed with white wooden shutters framing glassless windows which create spectacular views over the Indian Ocean. In the Main Pavilion, a ‘waterfall’ bar overlooks a large 25-metre infinity pool with views out across the sparkling warm waters. Dining takes place either on the alfresco terrace or along the pristine white beach, enchanting locations for your wedding breakfast.
