Nakupenda Beach Villas, situated near Kigomani village in Zanzibar, will be operational from December 1.
Nakupenda Beach Villas comprise two spacious houses, Angani and Zuri. Each villa has its own garden with immediate access to the white sand beaches featuring the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
The villas are an hour-and-a-half drive from the airport. The property is sandwiched between two boutique hotels in a private cove overlooking Mnemba Island.
Angani Villa is airy and light with three en-suite bedrooms, comprising two double rooms and one twin room, as well as two lounge areas, a fully equipped kitchen, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a private swimming pool, ideal for a larger family or two families wanting to vacation together. In addition, Angani Villa has both ground floor and second floor terraces where guests can enjoy the seascape view. Angani Villa can accommodate six to seven guests.
Zuri Villas, with its modern design incorporating touches of Swahili culture, comprises two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an interconnected living room, dining area, signature mini-library, a fully-equipped kitchen, complimentary Wi-Fi, airconditioning and water heaters throughout the villa. Zuri Villa can accommodate up to four guests.
On request, Nakupenda Beach Villas also offers guests full dining and catering services, with meals either prepared in the villa or at the sister property next door. Nakupenda Beach Villas policy is to source ingredients locally, wherever possible, purchasing fresh fish and seafood straight off the beach, sourcing fruit and vegetables from the local markets to support the community. Food at Nakupenda Beach Villas is influenced by the exotic flavours of Zanzibar.
Activities on site include snorkeling, fishing, dhow boat trips, cycling, Swahili culinary classes, Swahili coffee ceremonies, and barefoot dining in a boma with Masai showcasing traditional dances and songs.
Activities nearby include scuba diving and kitesurfing. In-house massages and laundry services are available at both Angani and Zuri. Wedding services are also available at Nakupenda Beach Villas.
