Kilindi is enveloped by 50 acres of lush gardens on Zanzibar's north-west coast, overlooking the sparkling sea that has been a route for spice traders for centuries. Originally the private property of Bjorn Andersson of ABBA, today Kilindi serves as a luxurious retreat offering just a small number of spacious Pavilions and first-class service in an enviable coastal location. Spa treatments, water-based activities and enjoyment of nature are all high on the agenda; as is delicious dining courtesy of the hotel's award-winning chefs, who will cook for you at any time of day so that you can dine in your chosen location on your own agenda.
There are just 15 minimalist pavilions at Kilindi. They have either one or two bedrooms, large wet rooms with rain showers, open-air lounges, small courtyard gardens with sun terraces, and private plunge pools. Design is light and airy, with decadent touches such as chunky hand-carved wooden headboards and luxurious draped fabrics. The added benefit or a private butler means that you only need leave your room when the mood takes you.
Kilindi is an adults-only hideaway.
