Xanadu’s Kiota Spa
Xanadu firmly believe that to truly settle into the pace of Zanzibar, one must find their own rhythm in time with the waves, the sway of the palm trees and the underlying East African beat. With this in mind, Xanadu’s Kiota Spa provides the perfect relaxation and holistic spa services.
The Kiota Spa, nestled near the beach, invites guests to relax and recharge: massages, manicures, pedicures and treatments are offered in-room or in the Kiota spa right at the beach. Products used by their professional therapists are from Africology or locally sourced and produced.
Our Opinion on Xanadu Villas & Retreat
Open throughout the year and with undoubtedly one of the best kitchens on the island, Xanadu represents the high end of the boutique hotel experience in Zanzibar.
Stylish, understated, ethereal. The soft architectural curves peep above the treeline and frame views out to the ocean. Villas are all unique and expansive with private plunge pools for the ultimate romantic hideaway or family retreat.
