The Residence offers several dining options for guests to utilize. The Dining Room is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, offering traditional dishes with a dash of Zanzibar spice.

The Spa has 6 treatment pavilions, found among 2 hectares of gorgeous gardens. Each of the lavishly appointed pavilions leads directly to onto a private garden with outdoor shower, bathtub, and relaxation area. There are a variety of massages exclusively for The Residence Zanzibar, created by French therapist Jean Marc Weill. In addition, The Resident Zanzibar Spa is the first hotel spa in the entire world to offer the “Ohashiatsu” concept. It is more than a massage, it is an energy-based protocol created by Mr. Wataru Ohashi. It mixes the use of acupressure points, exercise, and an Oriental diagnosis to offer the utmost relaxation in a completely advantageous and holistic way.

The Residence Zanzibar is a truly exclusive, private experience all guests are sure to enjoy.
