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

    “Qambani is relaxing and a wonder in every way” – September 2022

    I liked everything. The tranquility that is breathed, the privacy of the villas, the good taste and magnificent decoration throughout the hotel and how well cared for everything is. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are always excellent and in different environments according to interest. The food by the pool and under a treetop of plants is a delight. The menus were always perfectly elaborated and thought of. Maite is the soul of the hotel, always willing to advise you, to help you with any suggestions and flexibility for any changes that can be made. In that area the tide goes down a lot. When the tide is high, the water covers the whole beach, but when it’s low it allows you to make good walks throughout that area, very quiet and practically virgin.

    Paradise to relax & recharge” – December 2022

    The property is secluded which is exactly what we were looking for. When we did want to venture into town transfers were handled and it was always smooth and straightforward. The food was spectacular! you can request to eat anywhere on the property to enjoy whatever view you’re feeling (pool, lobby, room etc). Each day a few options for lunch were shared, and a set menu for dinner. Food was fresh, generous portions and scrumptious. We got a nice mixture of Zanzibari cuisine and international options.

    A dream in Zanzibar was realized. If you are looking for peace, this is the place for you. Everything is so beautiful and individually decorated, unfortunately the time passed much too quickly.

    “… the ambiance was perfect for relaxation.”September 2022

    Thank you to Maite and the staff at Qambani for making our stay exceptional! My girlfriends and I stayed there for a couple days towards the end of our Tanzanian trip and we couldn’t have been more happier. The property itself is stunning, combined with the attention to detail and care by the staff which makes it such a delight! The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect for relaxation. Hope to be back with the family sometime in the near future
