Sustainability

Designed with sustainability in mind, Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa reflects 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.

Behind the scenes, our operations reiterate our commitment to sustainability through powerful infrastructures and initiatives.
Wind and solar energy

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 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.
Beach Cleaning

Beach Cleaning

Even though our gardeners clear the beach every morning, our staff gathers once a month to clean the neighboring village of Paje which is unfortunately not always as kept. This project #LoveYourIsland is our contribution to the local awareness and contribution to a cleaner Zanzibar.
Lush Gardens and Plant Nursery

Organic Garden

With over 20.000 plants in our care, the lush gardens of the resort are without a doubt one of our most precious gem. We cultivate our organic fruits, herbs and vegetables that are used in our kitchen.
Plastic conscious

Plastic Conscious

Our drinking water is filtered through our water desalination plant to minimize the use of plastic on the resort and we have banned plastic straws as well as single use plastic packaging in our amenities.
Pack for Purpose

Pack with Purpose

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make an impact in the Zanzibari community.

ZWS bottled water

Bottled water

Our drinking water is filtered on-site and bottled in sanitized, reusable glass bottles to limit single-user plastics usage.

Local partners

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? You can watch and learn about the process, the project and the team, just 10 min. away from the resort (complimentary).
