Four Seasons unveils new luxury resort in Zanzibar

Luxury company to develop second property in Tanzania

Four Seasons has revealed plans to open a new resort on the ‘Spice Island’ of Zanzibar in the Indian Ocean, off east-central Africa.

Set 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 unique destination, or for those who wish to complement the adventure of a safari with the relaxation of an island retreat.

Extending its long-standing partnership with global investment firm Albwardy Investment – through which it has already developed properties 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.

“In partnership with Four Seasons, we have successfully curated a portfolio of unique travel experiences around the world, always honouring the distinct spirit of every location and the legendary service that has earned its longstanding global reputation in luxury hospitality,” explained Mr. Ali Saeed Juma Albwardy, Chairman of the Board, Albwardy Investment. “There is a tremendous opportunity to do the same in Zanzibar, and our new resort will highlight the island’s natural beauty and rich cultural heritage while enriching the region’s vibrant hospitality landscape.”

Zanzibar holds a storied history shaped by the pivotal role it played in the global spice trade of the 19th and early 20th centuries. With an array of influence spanning Europe, Africa and Asia, Zanzibar today celebrates a rich cultural heritage, unique flora and fauna, as well as excellent diving, snorkelling and kiteboarding opportunities to explore the surrounding turquoise waters.

Accommodations at Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will feature interior design by MOMA and, each with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean across the 50-hectare beachfront property.

The Resort will bring five new original-concept outlets to Zanzibar. Each with indoor and al-fresco seating options, Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will feature a signature seafood restaurant inspired by the local fish market, serving the very best “catch of the day” with beachside views, as well as a Levantine grill with specialty wood-fire cuisine. The resort will also offer a Mediterranean all-day dining restaurant, a poolside bar and grill, and lobby lounge and bar for expertly crafted morning coffees and evening beverages.

The Resort will include an expansive oceanfront pool with cabana service, a Kids For All Seasons Program, an array of water sports and excursions to discover the surrounding locale, extensive fitness facilities, dynamic meeting and event space, and a luxuriously-appointed spa featuring five private treatment rooms as well as an outdoor cabana for bespoke open-air spa experiences.

To ensure that the destination’s incredible natural habitat is respected and protected, Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar will include a Discovery Centre staffed with a dedicated team of on-site conservationists.

The Resort’s lush tropical setting, white sand beaches and bright blue waters will be just 32 kilometres off the coast of Tanzania and a short flight from Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti.
