This latest venture builds on Four Seasons and Albwardy Investment’s longstanding partnership, together bringing luxury hotels and resorts to life in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Johannesburg, South Africa; Hoi An, Vietnam; Serengeti, Tanzania; and two resorts in the Seychelles at Mahé and Desroches Island.

Zanzibar, known as the “Spice Island,” holds a storied history shaped by the pivotal role it played in the global spice trade of the 19th and early 20th centuries. With an array of influence spanning Europe, Africa and Asia, Zanzibar today celebrates a rich cultural heritage, unique flora and fauna, as well as excellent diving, snorkelling and kiteboarding opportunities to explore the surrounding turquoise waters.  

About Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar

With architecture by the internationally renowned firm eco.id, the new-build Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will include 60 private villas with one to three-bedroom configurations. Accommodations will feature interior design by MOMA and eco.id, each with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean across the 126-acre (50-hectare) beachfront property.

Adding to Four Seasons strong history of culinary excellence and exceptional dining experiences, the Resort will bring five new original-concept outlets to Zanzibar. Each with indoor and al-fresco seating options, Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will feature a signature seafood restaurant inspired by the local fish market, serving the very best “catch of the day” with beachside views, as well as a Levantine grill with specialty wood-fire cuisine. The Resort will also offer a Mediterranean all-day dining restaurant, a poolside bar and grill, and lobby lounge and bar for expertly crafted morning coffees and evening beverages.

In addition to the highly acclaimed service and genuine care of Four Seasons, the Resort will include an expansive oceanfront pool with cabana service, a complimentary Kids For All Seasons Program, an array of water sports and excursions to discover the surrounding locale, extensive fitness facilities, dynamic meeting and event space, and a luxuriously-appointed spa featuring five private treatment rooms as well as an outdoor cabana for bespoke open-air spa experiences.

To ensure that the destination’s incredible natural habitat is respected and protected, Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will include a Discovery Centre staffed with a dedicated team of on-site conservationists. With a mandate to advance responsible tourism throughout Zanzibar and beyond, the Discovery Centre will promote wildlife protection, sustainability, environmental preservation and community partnerships to support guests and the surrounding community’s ability to leave an enduring, positive impact on their natural environment.

Providing a scenic backdrop for an unforgettable stay, the Resort’s lush tropical setting, white sand beaches and bright blue waters will be just 23 miles (32 kilometres) off the coast of Tanzania and a short flight from the award-winning Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti. In addition to providing easy access to mainland destinations in Tanzania, including Kilimanjaro International Airport, Zanzibar International Airport has daily flights from international carriers with direct flights to African, European and Middle Eastern destinations and beyond.
