Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa - Opens on the 1st of June 2014

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa, the trendiest resort to hit Zanzibar's east coast will open on June 1, 2014.

Eleven all-white villas are nestled in the island's lush landscape to provide privacy and create an enchanting oasis. Sea views, a private terrace and a private pool can be enjoyed from any of the one, two or five bedroom villas.

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa is the only resort in all of Tanzania to have a five-bedroom villa, talk about bragging rights! The Presidential five-bedroom villa includes a Jacuzzi. All villas are equipped with Wi-Fi, A/C, hanging beds, outdoor bathtubs and rain showers. Guests can watch the sunset from the rooftop lounge, have happy hour by the large swimming pool or get lavishly pampered at the spa.

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa strives to preserve and protect the environment. The resort is powered by wind and solar energy and has its own water source and desalination plant. Each villa is equipped with a solar water heating system. Fresh organic fruits and vegetables are grown on the resort's own garden and served at its first class restaurant.

The resort is purposely located on Paje Beach, one of the top three kitesurfing spots in the world. The resort's owner is an avid kite surfer and Paje's beaches make it possible for him to share his passion for the sport. Beginners can take classes from certified instructors and more experienced riders can rent high quality equipment. Stand-up paddle, Blokart and kayak rentals are available for those guests not so keen on wind and speed.

To celebrate its grand opening, White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa is offering a great special for the month of June. E-mail us for more details:
