XANADU

ZANZIBAR, TANZANIA

Xanadu is something out of a movie set. The name itself inspires ideas of grandeur and blissed-out luxury, and this outpost on the white sand beach of Zanzibar embodies just that. 

 

A dream come true for Eileen and Durban Marcus, Xanadu came about from the couple's holiday in Zanzibar. These world travelers were so taken by this area that they stayed to turn Xanadu into what we see today. Every detail was crafted by the pair in unison with nature. The walls are built from pink coral blocks that occur naturally in the interior of the island, and the window frames and decking are wood from a sunken old trading dhow.

With six villas tucked into a tropical garden just out of reach of the gentle waves of the Indian Ocean, Xanadu is perfect for honeymooners and families looking for a private piece of African paradise. Have a few more people joining you? Don’t worry, it’s possible to book out the entire outpost for the get-together of a lifetime. 

The ethos of the Xanadu team is to celebrate life, and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing during your stay. Sip hand-picked wines from around the world, taste exceptional cuisine prepared by the resident chef, and pretend you’re in a fairytale while dipping in the picturesque pool. For those seeking a bit more Outside-style adventure, fear not. There are plenty of ways to celebrate adrenaline too. Surf both gentle and challenging waves on the south east coast of the island, hike the Jozani forest in search of Red Colobus monkeys, and sail in a traditional dhow at sunset. For those seeking a truly authentic Zanzibar-esque experience, try your hand at spearfishing, kite-surfing, and scuba-diving all in the crystal blue waters of the temperate Indian Ocean. Whatever you fill your days with, you’ll be ready to relax in your sumptuous suite with a hand-crafted cocktail before doing it all over again tomorrow.

"Xanadu is an experience, a lifestyle, an awakening of what life can be, what it should be. [It] has been crafted holistically out of a desire to breathe."
