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.

    Love it

    From begining till the last day we had a wonderful time at Qambani. Our “home” for 9 nights was the castaway villa with a big seaview terrace surrunded in a nice green garden with more than enough space insite for the tree of us.Cleaning services from the house are excellent. Food was all so very goed .In the 9 days we never had a meal we don’t like. Manager and staff are very helpful and make you feel at home. Swimmingpool with sweet water is beautiful its a pity that the salt water swimmingpool is a little untended will the spot is wonderful with al so a great view to the ocean. Do we want to come back: yes definitely
    For us the place to be if you want to go to Zanzibar but don’t wanne be in the middle of the touristic area.

    Exceptional

    How can i describe my words for the most cozy place i have ever been in, I really like every thing from the beginning of the welcoming until the good bye moment. The resort is like you are living in a paradise and you live like a king in his kingdom. The villa was so nice with african and traditional decorations. The smiles from all the staffs and the behavior of them are beyond the expectations. Moreover, i will not forget the most delicious food I have tasted ever in my life. I want to thank all the kitchen staff for their high quality food and service. I really can’t stop thinking about the days I stayed in this resort. I really hope to visit it again. Oh, also thank you so much for the honeymoon preparation and the amazing surprise that you do for us. Thank you so much from my heart.
