Pools & Garden

It’s hard to say what’s the best thing about the grounds that surround Qambani: the splendid pools for endless afternoons in the water, the exotic gardens with palms and sunbirds – planted by one of East Africa’s best gardeners – or the Indian Oceans’ craggy coral edge with seaviews splashed all the way along the front.

 A little stroll down through the grounds takes you to five wooden steps and the shore. From June to November, a miles-long white sand beach curls around the headland. From December to May, a smaller beach is no more than ten minutes walk away on the coral at low tide.

Livingroom

Room is an understatement: over forty wooden louvre doors open all sides to terraces and sunlight. At its heart, vast spreading sofas frame a giant timber table strewn with curiosities and bowls of shells.

Not at all party shy, this extensive room has a fully equipped bar at the eastern end, and there’s a serious sound system throughout. There’s also a different chair in which to read every chapter of your book.

Dining

You can feast and entertain all over this generous property. The master table can be elegantly laid in the timber dining room, with louvre doors that open three whole sides to the air and light.

 Outside in the grounds, you can go poolside with a barbecue, or lounge on the main terrace in the softness of the evening. Or peel off at dusk to the sundowner rooftop, right on the ocean’s edge.

Qambani Luxury Resort gym

Movies & Gym

Retreat from the tyranny of unlimited watersports to some indoor entertainment. A cosy room cum study is set back from the main sitting room, with a large HD TV with satellite channels, a selection of DVDs, and nice comfy sofas.

The next room off the courtyard is a small gym, with bicycle and rowing machines, free weights and mirrors. Like the rest of the house, it has a wi-fi connection and state of the art Sonos wireless sound system.

Zanzibar Pro Kite

    “A haven of peace” – April 2024

    This hotel is incredible! My husband and I stayed in the villa naufragés, which is very tastefully decorated and takes you away from it all. The bedding is very comfortable and the outdoor shower is beautiful. The outdoor setting is breathtaking, between sea and greenery, you would be in an idyllic setting that allows you to relax. The staff are very kind and attentive and we really enjoyed the food. Many thanks for these 3 days of absolute calm in this little corner of paradise.

    “Absolutely perfect!” – February 2024

    There are no other options left open at the Qambani Resort. We had 5 super relaxing days after a very strenuous safari. Everything is just right here! Super friendly staff who are extremely attentive. Perfect food for each of the 3 meals a day. Very good wine list and well-stocked bar. Very large, clean villas – we had Coastal and loved them. We didn’t leave the resort during our stay, but we didn’t want to or need to. This is pure relaxation. Simply amazing and we absolutely recommend it.

    “Very close to paradise” – February 2024

    Qambani is the perfect place to relax, if you literally want to do nothing, except laze by the pool, or read a book! We absolutely loved the resort, from the staff, to the rooms, it was perfect. The food was very good, not 5* but still tasty and well presented!

    All in all, we had a great time
