Living areas

The single greatest luxury in Qambani could be the vast amount of personal space, and how well it works. At the heart of the property is a ring of superb communal areas: generous, beautifully equipped and made for dream holidays. A huge living room extends along the garden's ocean edge opening onto sun-drenched terraces. To one side stands a big, breezy, timber dining room and to the back, a kitchen, entertainment room, gym and hammam open onto a tropical courtyard.


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
