Cyndi Lauper famously said that “heaven is a place on earth”, and we couldn’t agree more. Why? Well, we found where it is:- Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas and Spa. The resort is privately owned and it really epitomises luxury, being based in Paje, Zanzibar.
It actually started life as a project which was created on the personal pursuit of the resort’s owners who wished to find sustainable luxury. This dream was reached within three years and today the beautiful, private resort is one of the most sought-after destinations in Zanzibar. Not only is it luxuriously five-star, but those working at the resort also pay special attention to ensuring that the the island’s culture always shines through. This is what makes the resort so special. By taking great detail in incorporating the beautiful landscape, with the island’s existing wildlife taking president, as the idyllic resort has been carefully built around it. The resort itself says that it believes “that high standards should be met while preserving the environment.
Luxury shouldn’t cost the earth, and as such we strive to preserve and enhance the naturally rich landscape of Zanzibar with unobtrusive architecture designed around existing fauna”. In fact, the resort is so aware of the beautiful environment that it is in fact powered by wind and solar energy, and even uses its own water source!Alongside this, the resort also contributes to developing the local community, using goods that have been created by Zanzibari women to be distributed from its boutique.
Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa has also created a carpentry workshop to teach young men from the island how to develop such skills while using modern and creative machinery.A destination that looks after the community and environment, while offering some of the most beautiful views and relaxation sounds just like heaven to us!
