Zanzibar wellbeing holidays

The nicest places for wellbeing in Zanzibar

Zanzibar is the perfect place to unwind on the beach or by the pool. There are plenty of shady spots to relax during the day and the friendly staff will cater for your every need. It's especially good for couples and honeymooners; as most lodges have health and beauty centres which offer massage and beauty treatments.

There is a small spa at the Serena, which can provide the usual range of beauty treatments that you would expect from an international hotel. With a beautiful swimming pool, a stay here makes for a relaxing start to your holiday in Zanzibar.
