On the southeast side of Zanzibar, nestled away from the island’s bustling large beaches, lies the little gem of Wildfitness's Zanzibar: a boutique hideaway on the breathtaking Chwaka bay, picture-perfect in white and turquoise. You will be dazzled by the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean and the magnificent Zanzibari sunsets. The reefs on the south-east coast of the island are teeming with richly diverse marine life. Nearby is the Jozani forest - a tropical wonderland and designated area of conservation which is home to the endemic Red Colobus Monkey and other treasures.
All of the rooms are gracefully decorated and filled with plenty of natural light. Each room has a personal safe, air con and a fan. The rooms have either a private veranda or a balcony which overlooks the Indian Ocean and private gardens. Wifi is available in the bedrooms and the main area of the accommodation.
There is a Spa on site offering beauty treatments and extra massages (as a guest you will receive 2 complimentary massages during your course).
The food Wildfitness serve in Zanzibar is sourced organically and locally. All their fresh fish and seafood is sourced directly from local fishermen, their fruits and coconuts come in abundance from the surrounding trees.
