Kilindi is a beautiful, unique resort that is now well established amongst the very best that Zanzibar has to offer. Feedback from guests is always extremely positive, with reports of very high standards of personal service and glowing comments about the location, staff, food, and World Class Spa facilities. The Pure Zanzibar team stayed here first in October 2009 and again every few months from there for both business and pleasure. We are consequently confident in placing Kilindi up with Baraza, The Palms, and Fundu Lagoon as the best resorts in the whole Zanzibar archipelago.
Public areas at Kilindi are born of the same vision; the bar is the epitome of chic with a vast granite effect vertical table of rock, running the length of the back wall caressed by a film of flowing water. Inspired, you get lost in the haze, the flow, the drink….take your pick.
Set back from the Pavilions and the beach front, close to the entrance where all guests arrive at an elevated point, sits a Sheesha bar above a communications lounge where, if needs must, there is access to the internet and telephones, though the spirit of Kilindi really is to leave all notion of time and space on the outside and succumb to the pleasures of nature.
With an ever increasing number of hotels popping up in Zanzibar, Kilindi is still one of a kind. No where else on the island do you get so much personal space and your walled garden with its own traditional Zanzibari door makes your pavilion a haven of privacy. The perfect destination for honeymoon couples looking for something different in a luxury honeymoon. Your personal butler will bring your meals to your pavilion, by the infinity pool or even on the beach as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.
It’s wonderful to wake up in the morning, open the doors of your bedroom pavilion overlooking the ocean and step into one of two private plunge pools. The food and service here is excellent as well and I will always remember drinking champagne in the plunge pool, while the full moon rose behind the pavilion and an electrical storm crackled over the horizon offshore. Kilindi Resort is not for everyone however, as its open design really connects you with nature and you must be prepared to share your room with the odd gecko.
