Zuri Zanzibar, Kendwa
Choose from 55 west-facing bungalows, suites and villas overlooking the beach. Designed to provide the ultimate in coziness, equipped with a mixture of contemporary and local furniture and decorated with African artwork, they come with an option of outdoor showers, jacuzzi, a private stretch of beach and more. Zuri Zanzibar offer a fusion of European, African, Arabic and Indian cuisine at their three restaurants and four bars. Everything from a swimming pool to an indoor and outdoor “wild fitness” gym area are at your disposal.
Kilindini offers a luxurious serene stay with each pavilion having its own private tropical garden, plunge pool, an extraordinary rainfall shower room and your own dedicated butler. It achieves the perfect marriage between Scandinavian minimalism and the dramatic architectural overtones of Middle Eastern heritage, whilst encouraging an open, ‘back-to-nature’ ambiance throughout. This same openness allows the gentle ocean breeze to waft throughout each of the rooms and carry with it the delightful soundtrack of Kilindi’s colourful birdlife.
Faru Faru Lodge, Grumeti
Singita Faru Faru’s relaxed approach to luxury forms a golden thread throughout this easy-going lodge in the heart of the Serengeti. Its contemporary African décor and design and close-up views of a busy waterhole alongside the Grumeti River invite continuous connections with nature, while vast outdoor decks, an interactive kitchen and multiple airy enclaves for dining add personality to every meal. The café-style bar hums with a subtle sparkle that spills over to the pool area and firepit, making for magical evenings under starlit skies.
