Here we are, Maarten, José, Mats (2015) and Fee (2017). Since 2014 we have been planning to move abroad. Slightly delayed because of the arrival of our children we finally made the leap and packed our bags to move to Zanzibar in 2019. We have had plans to build our own piece of paradise since a long time and now in 2021 we are finally ready to welcome you all!
KIJANI BEACH VILLAS
We have tried to create a comfortable place to stay with lots of commodities and a luxury touch. There are 4 villas, each one slightly different. Our Kijani and Zawadi both have 2 bedrooms and the Forest Green and Beach Blue both have 3 bedrooms. Each of our villas has a/c, 2 private terraces and to top it off: a plunge pool on the top terrace! Our complemantary breakfast can be served on your own terrace or be enjoyed in our stylish designed restaurant.
We will assist you in creating your perfect holiday stay: whether you need a babysitter, a tour, the nearest pharmacy or the best massage.
Since we are a new hotel, our team has lots of energy to provide you with the best service!
We have always been aware of the challenges the island faces, one of them being the waste handling. Since there is no general plumbing system on Zanzibar, every place needs to have its own septic tank for example. Our waste disposal system (septic tank) is influanced by the principles of permaculture. Through a series of filters, the grey water can be reused to water the garden. So our watercircle goes around twice, saving us and the planet a lot of water. From the raw food waste we create our own compost to nourish our garden. For our other waste we work together with Zanrec, a company started to help the government manage the waste on the island by (at the moment partially) recycling waste. There are many beautiful initiatives who recycle waste into nice products like Ozti and Chako. The Permaculture Design Institute offers training and courses for locals and foreigners to learn the principles of permaculture to anyone intersted. A cause we support warmly.
In this light we kindly ask our guests to use resources with care: use the a/c only when you feel it is needed, take care of your towels to prevent unnecessary use of water and seperate your waste into the appropriate wastebins. Our restaurant serves small and large portions of all dishes to accomodate everyonesappetite, big or small. This also helps us to prevent food waste.
