Xanadu is an experience, a lifestyle,
an awakening of what life can be, what it should be

It exceeds tranquility, luxury and expectation. Eight uncompromising villas on a stretch of pristine white sand beach, unmatched in Zanzibar, Xanadu has been crafted holistically out of a desire to breathe.

Xanadu exceeds tranquility, luxury and expectation. Eight uncompromising villas, surrounded by lush vegetation along a stretch of pristine white sand beach, Xanadu was conceived and crafted by her owners Eileen and Marcus out of a desire to breathe.

An hour’s drive from exotic Stonetown, Xanadu offers guests what few can – an experience that endures.

At Xanadu our philosophy is simple and focused – celebrate life! Here guests enjoy exceptional cuisine prepared by our resident chef, hand picked wines from around the world, a pool area so magical it excites images of African and Arabian folklore, and a private beach with the warm Indian Ocean a few short steps from each villa. For the adventurous, Xanadu’s helpful staff can arrange a variety of excursions around the island.

Now you can breathe…
