Four Seasons to Open Resort on Zanzibar

Four Seasons is set to open a luxury resort in Zanzibar. Located along the white sand beaches and blue waters of Pongwe, Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will create a distinct resort experience for guests looking to explore this destination, or for those who wish to complement the adventure of a safari with the relaxation of an island retreat.

This latest venture builds on Four Seasons and Albwardy Investment’s longstanding partnership, together bringing luxury hotels and resorts to life in Buenos Aires, Johannesburg, Hoi An, Serengeti and two resorts in the Seychelles at Mahé and Desroches Island. The new-build Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will include 60 private villas with one- to three-bedroom configurations. Accommodations will have an interior design by MOMA and, each with views of the Indian Ocean across the 126-acre beachfront property.

The resort will also offer five F&B outlets, including a lobby lounge and bar, a poolside bar and grill, a Mediterranean all-day dining restaurant, a signature seafood restaurant serving the “catch of the day” with beachside views, as well as a Levantine grill with specialty wood-fire cuisine. Guests can additionally avail themselves of 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, fitness facilities, meeting and event space, and a spa with five private treatment rooms as well as an outdoor cabana for open-air spa experiences.

To ensure that the destination’s natural habitat is respected and protected, Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will include a Discovery Center staffed with a team of on-site conservationists. With a mandate to advance responsible tourism throughout Zanzibar and beyond, the Discovery Center 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.

The resort will be just 23 miles off the coast of Tanzania and a short flight from the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti. Besides 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.
