Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has announced the development of Anantara Zanzibar Resort, expected to open in 2020 as part of the Zanzibar Amber Resort mixed-use lifestyle community.
Occupying in excess of 1000 hectares of prime Indian Ocean coastline in the North East of Zanzibar, Zanzibar Amber Resort is an integrated project which blends contemporary aspirations with premium hospitality and world-class facilities.
The luxury waterfront resort is to feature 100 guest rooms, alongside 50 one and two-bedroom pool villas. Leisure facilities will include a luxury spa and wellness centre, gym, three restaurants and bars, a kid’s club and teen’s club.
Anantara Zanzibar Resort guests will have access to Zanzibar Amber Resort, a mixed-use project which will offer a retail souk, a tropical aqua park, a marina, an equestrian centre and international polo club, along with further hotels.
“Anantara Zanzibar Resort will be the first property in the region to showcase Anantara’s authentic luxury and personalised hospitality,” says Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, parent company of Anantara.
“Whilst offering a unique addition to Anantara’s portfolio, the resort’s discerning guests will benefit greatly from the project’s integrated lifestyle facilities. We believe Tanzania has enormous growth potential in the tourism and lifestyle sector, and we look forward to working with Pennyroyal Gibraltar to maximise the resort’s potential.
“The development of Anantara Zanzibar Resort marks a key strategic move that provides synergy and diversifies Minor Hotels’ well-established presence in East Africa, complementing the Elewana Collection of luxury safari camps, lodges and beach resorts in Tanzania and Kenya.”
