The Island of Zanzibar, for us, has been a never ending love affair. It has been our holiday gateway, a place to recuperate and gather our thoughts. This sentiment has not eased over time. With Tamani Villas we want to give our guests all that Zanzibar has to offer: the peace, the love, the food and the endearing hospitality which has been the trademark of Zanzibar. The villas have access to long stretches of white sandy beaches on either side of them. A long walk on the pristine beach or cycling is just bliss. +Snorkeling in the shallow waters at low tide, reveal a sneak peak of the colorful world of coral and marine life that is at Mnemba marine reserve.
Our staff: Fundi Bilal, Babu Ali, Duchi the chef, and all the supporting staff are from the local village and are here to ensure that Zanzibar for you is all that it has ever been for us…with a touch of luxury in a place where time, thankfully, slows down. Check out our gallery for a sneak peek into what awaits on your next holiday at Tamani!
Welcome home to Tamani Villas.
Staying at Tamani Villas provides the unique opportunity to give back to the local community as all profits from your stay are directly channelled to the Tamani Learning Center, where our vision is to provide access, to free, high quality education to the village of Matemwe.
Tamani (pronounced “tamaani”) in the Swahili language means “to desire” – the essence with which these wonderful villas have been sustained; add the surrounding brilliant white beach and exquisitely green nature – they make you “tamani” to remain there forever! Karibu – Welcome to your home away from home, on the paradise island of Zanzibar! Both four-bedroom villas include their own private pool, and are staffed with full-time chefs and housekeeping, making it the best scene to serve your needs in Zanzibar.
Each villa has beds to comfortably accommodate 11 adults, and additional roll out beds can be added which can accommodate an additional 2 guests per villa.
