Welcome to your home away from home, in the paradise island of Zanzibar! Both four-bedroom villas are staffed with full-time chefs and housekeeping, making it the best scene to serve your needs in Zanzibar. By choosing our villas as your accommodation on this island you contribute to helping the locals with excellent education – their chance to have a bright future!

Tamani Villas provides the unique opportunity to give back to the local community as a portion of your payment will be donated to the Tamani Learning Center which provides nursery and adult education for the people of Matemwe.


Tamani (pronounced “tamaani”) in the Swahili language means “to desire” – the essence with which these wonderful villas were designed; add the surrounding brilliant white beach and exquisitely green nature – they make you “tamani” to remain there forever!

The Island of Zanzibar, for us, has been a never ending love affair. It has been our holiday gateway, a place to recuperate and gather our thoughts. This sentiment has not eased over time. With Tamani Villas we want to give our guests all that Zanzibar has to offer: the peace, the love, the food and the endearing hospitality which has been the trademark of Zanzibar.

The villas have access to long stretches of white sandy beaches on either side of them. A long walk on the pristine beach or cycling is just bliss. Snorkeling in the shallow waters at low tide, reveal a sneak peak of the colorful world of coral and marine life that is at Mnemba marine reserve.

Our staff: Fundi Bilal, Babu Ali, Ali the chef, and all the supporting staff are from the local village and are here to ensure that Zanzibar for you is all that it has ever been for us…with a touch of luxury in a place where time, thankfully, slows down.
