The Zanzibar East Coast lies protected by its coral reef. As the tides come and go our coast goes from ever changing tidal pools teeming with life, to warm easy waves gently rolling on our beaches. Sand is seasonal, it comes and goes as tropical currents change around the island. Qambani is situated on the tip of the Michamvi peninsula, overlooking both the Indian Ocean and Chwaka bay. 

Qambani's generous proportions provide six villas, living spaces, pools and lush tropical garden, a promise of complete relaxation and indulgence.

A fusion of ancient Swahili crafts - perfected in the palaces of the sultans along the East African shores - and modern coastal design, it gives shady sanctuary, while turning the inside out, so every space takes great gulps of the sea and the balmy tropical air.

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 spa open onto a tropical courtyard.

The six thatched bedroom villas are scattered east to west along the coral ras, with lovely sea views and generous living areas. Furnished to an extremely high spec, they are a joy to behold and delight to stay in.

Each of the villas is different - in different styles with different treats: extra rooms and bathrooms for children, breeze-cooled loft rooms, outside showers or baths; one even has its own parapet terrace right on the sea's edge.
