Description - Villa

Tamani Villas is located on the northeast cost of Zanzibar, in the small village of Matemwe. Tamani (pronounced “tamaani”) in the Swahili language means “to desire” – the essence with which these wonderful villas were designed; add the surrounding brilliant white beach and exquisitely green nature – they make you “tamani” to remain there forever!

The Island of Zanzibar, for us, has been a never ending love affair. It has been our holiday gateway, a place to recuperate and gather our thoughts. This sentiment has not eased over time. With Tamani Villas we want to give our guests all that Zanzibar has to offer: the peace, the love, the food and the endearing hospitality which has been the trademark of Zanzibar.

Tamani includes two Beach Front villas, one has 4 en-suite bedrooms and second has 5. Both villas include a private swimming pool, beach access, air conditioned rooms, in addition to full-time chefs and housekeeping personnel.

The villas have access to long stretches of white sandy beaches on either side of them. A long walk on the pristine beach or cycling is just bliss. Snorkeling in the shallow waters at low tide, reveal a sneak peak of the colorful world of coral and marine life that is at Mnemba marine reserve. Additional excursions to spice tours, Stone town, Kisimkazi, and Nungwi are few of the many options that can be organized for you.

Our staff: Babu Ali, Fundi Bilal, Duchi the chef, and all the supporting staff are from the local village and are here to ensure that Zanzibar for you is all that it has ever been for us…with a touch of luxury in a place where time, thankfully, slows down.
