Originally designed for Benny Andersson - one of the members of the 1970's pop group ABBA - Kilindi is a true blend of the diverse cultures to be found in Zanzibar; a rarity in the world of luxury hotels.
Kilindi's 'open-to-nature' approach provides intimate and 'barefoot' appeal that so many crave. With a dedicated butler service, complete privacy from your pavilion is guaranteed.
Located on the north-west coast of Zanzibar, and lying adjacent to the clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, sits the extraordinary and mesmerising resort of Kilindi. Kilindi achieves the perfect marriage between Scandinavian minimalism and the dramatic architectural overtones of Middle Eastern heritage, whilst encouraging an open, 'back-to-nature' ambiance throughout.
The 15 eastern-styled domed Pavilions nestling amongst a 35-acre tropical garden are the perfect and intimate retreat for each and every guest. The Pavilions have their very own private plunge pool, and possess a separate but extraordinary 'rainfall' shower room which is annexed to each of the Pavilion rooms. In each of the Pavilion suites, white wooden-slatted shutters embrace wide-arched glassless windows each affording spectacular views over the Indian Ocean. Each Pavilion is served by a dedicated butler.
A 'waterfall' bar with the Main Pavilion overlooks a large 25-metre 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.
