Xanadu was built on a mission of love

Xanadu was built by a Zambian family as a passion project; a desire to create a space where they can breathe in nature and relax. Heart and soul went in to creating the most beautiful retreat with every detail considered. Those who choose to celebrate their love on the island of Zanzibar will be welcomed in by the family and local friends who make hosting guests their joy and passion. We are a team and a family, working together with you to make sure your wedding or family celebration is exactly the magical day you desired, maybe with a few extra unimaginable and unforgettable experiences sprinkled on.
