Local cuisine in your private villa Xanadu follows the philosophy of clean, fresh and healthy cuisine that incorporates the best flavors of Zanzibar. An experienced kitchen team delivers first-class daily menus that are freshly prepared, combining the skills and proven culinary practices with the freshest produce available. 


A multinational team of international and local chefs combine their skills and international influences with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients for a bespoke culinary experience. Our current team consists of Tanzanian, South African and Kenyan nationals who combine their skills and flavors. 


We associate our philosophy with the promise of good, fresh and healthy meals. How better to ensure this than by growing our own produce, using insecticides and utilising local skills and love of the land to produce tomatoes, basil, rocket, pumpkin, mint and parsley to name but a few. Sustainably sourced, organic, healthy and fresh. These are the key words for the cuisine we offer. 


Let yourself be pampered! Pamper yourself in our Luxury Kiota Spa. The luxurious, secluded spa at Xanadu Villas is the place to relax, revitalize and rejuvenate. A way to find physical, emotional and spiritual balance through a combination of natural products and treatments. The products used by our professional therapists are from Africology or locally sourced. 


Located directly on the beach, the spa has a treatment room for couples, changing rooms and facilities, as well as a private terrace where treatments can be enjoyed in the sea breeze.
