Villa bluu

Villa Bluu is located in one of the most spectacular locations in the South East of Zanzibar, on a coral rock cliff, offering our guests breath-taking views over the Indian Ocean.

Villa Bluu offers multiple facilities including a pool table, fine dining restaurant and a cocktail bar. Our infinity pool provides the perfect setting where you can soak up the sun, listening to the sounds of the blue ocean beyond.

We offer four luxury rooms which are spacious, bright and elegantly furnished with a stunning sea front view. Each room has a private balcony, high speed WIFI, spacious, stylish bathroom and a king size bed where you can kick back and take in the beautiful views from your balcony.


Being healthy, unfortunately, is not a God given right. It is something that has to be worked at constantly. Sometimes it even means sacrifice. I train five days a week, even on days where I don’t want to get out of bed. I devote time to my health.

I enjoy running half marathons and eat an egg free and dairy free diet. In addition to this, I take time away from work to centre myself and give myself a break. I enjoy my health which allows me to travel and do all the activities that are my passion.
