Clove Island

Imagine silky white, soft sand, warm and shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean with deep shades of blue and turquoise. Close your eyes and smell the intense aromas of sweet vanilla, pepper and spices – cardamom, cinnamon, cloves… Open your eyes again and take a deep breath. Surround yourself with majestic nature and a mosaic of cultures that intertwine in an exceptionally poetic way. Have a rest. Relax. Forget about your problems. Let the time slow down and let the day go on in a slower rhythm. Without hurry. Naturally. Visit Zanzibar and discover it to the fullest. Come visit us!

In the morning you are woken up by the sound of waves of the Indian Ocean. You open your eyes, slowly get up and enjoy the blissful atmosphere of doing nothing. As you look out of the window, you can see the picturesque landscape – an exotic beach, silky-soft white sand and turquoise water that gently washes it away. You go out on the balcony and take a deep breath. You don’t have to hurry anywhere. Everything you need is there for you. In your own villa – exclusive, modern and at the same time enchanting with the magic of rustic style.

What are you going to do today? A lazy day by the ocean? Swimming with dolphins? Surfing in the ocean? Visiting one of the villages in the central part of the island? Or maybe a trip to Prison Island and swimming with turtles? All this is within your reach. Here and now. At Clove Island.

Clove Island: holidays for the demanding Guests...

We offer you four exclusive villas and two apartments. All comfortably equipped, decorated in Swahili style with a hint of European modernity. Each of them provides cozy and luxurious environment for relaxation. For you, your other half, your entire family or a group of friends. The decision is yours.

Three villas provide comfortable rest for one to four people. On special request, the so-called “extra bed” in the form of a fold-out sofa can be provided in the living room. In this configuration, the villa can accommodate 5 people in ideal conditions.

The fourth villa is divided into separate double apartments with a bedroom and a living room on the ground floor and a similar apartment on the first floor.

All villas have two bathrooms – one with shower and the other with bath and shower. Each of them also has two balconies with a direct view of the ocean.

This is not all. There is also a comfortable living room with TV and a complete kitchenette with fridge, electric hob, dishes and cutlery.

The apartments guarantee equally excellent conditions and offer

About Makunduchi

Do you like the intimate atmosphere that escapes commerciality and repeatability? Do you want to truly relax and at the same time be close to the attractions that will make your stay in Zanzibar even more exciting? Makanduchi is your place on Earth.

Here you will find a typically African, picturesque landscape – with red clay cottages with thatched roofs, hidden among palm trees, and above all – friendly, broadly smiling locals, who are calling “Jambo!” from afar.

A small, sleepy and picturesque village is located in the southeastern part of the island. In close proximity there are Jambani and Paje on one side and Kizimkazi on the other. The charming nearby port can become a starting point for a sea or land adventure. Plan it together with us!
