Things to experience in Xanadu

We assist our guests in arranging any activity on the beautiful island of Zanzibar.

Unforgettable moments

Good morning sunshine

Xanadu is located on the east coast of Zanzibar, making it ideal to truly experience the sunrise and start of the new day. With your favorite early morning beverage at hand of course.


Enjoy a healthy breakfast

Your private butler will setup breakfast at the location of your choice albeit the beach, yoga deck, restaurant or villa for you to enjoy at leisure.

Time to relax

Take a step into your private pool

Each Villa at Xanadu has at least one private plunge pool for you to enjoy. The pools are unheated and ideal to cool off and feel refreshed from the African heat just 6 degrees South of the equator

Relax & Recharge

How about a spa treatment?

Nurture your body and all senses in our Kiota Spa. Located right on the beach you are welcome to choose to have your spa experience in the couples treatment room or on the private balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean.


Time for you and your loved ones

Relax in your own private space

Make yourself at home in your space.  Your selected villa is reserved for your private use only and ideal to relax and unwind.  Our beach lounging areas are spaced out to ensure optimal sun, shade and proximity to other guests and the same for all our dining spots. Now you can breath.

Private Villas

How about a roof top lunch?

Our Kimwondo Villa with the signature rooftop pool has the ideal lunch or dinner spot next to the pool. From here you can look over our lush gardens towards the turquoise waters. Should you be staying in one of the other villas and Kimwondo Villa is available you are welcome to enjoy a meal at the famous Xanadu arches.

Fascinating stories are yours to tell and to read about. Supplement the stories you read by helping yourself to a book from your villa and share a story by leaving a book for the next guest.
