Sustainability

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa was designed with sustainability in mind, and delivering the best of service while reflecting the natural beauty of the coast of Zanzibar. 

 With over 4 hectares of lush garden, the 11 villas are nestled among trees and bushes for complete intimacy, their architecture emphasizing the local environment through the use of organic materials, shapes and textures. Throughout construction and design phases sustainable building practices have been used by sharing of skills, knowledge as well as processes put in place to ensure the hotel has a positive environmental impact.

Behind the scenes, our operations reiterate our commitment to sustainability through powerful infrastructures and initiatives. We integrated a number of environmental measures and adopted the best sustainable practices & green initiatives to ensure Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa is an eco-minded luxury hotel.

Wind and Solar Energy

We have invested in photovoltaic panels, solar water heaters and our own wind turbine to power the resort sustainably, with a minimal imprint.

Waste Management

Waste is a difficult topic in Zanzibar as there are little infrastructures to help businesses recycle and dispose of waste environmentally. Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa has partnered with Zanrec to categorize and recycle waste.

We partner with local producers to bring the best of Zanzibar to your room. Soaps and amenities are handcrafted locally by the team at Mwani Zanzibar, supporting the work of the community and the local know-how. Seaweed is picked daily on the beach, dried and processed inPage. This gift from the ocean is rich in nutrients and supports the natural detoxification and balance of the skin. Wantto know more?
