- Villa Kidosho, Michamvi, Zanzibar
The opulent Matlai Boutique Hotel has two villas on Zanzibar’s southeast shore—a beautiful four-bedroom Asili House. However, the two-bedroom Villa Kidosho, which can be rented as a whole, is more pertinent for holiday rentals. It is ideal for groups of friends, families, or honeymooners who want some solitude while traveling. The two suites, Jua (sun) and Mwesi (moon), each have a king-size bed, a private balcony, and an ensuite. Kidosho means “beauty” in Swahili and has a house with two opulent suites, stunning sea views, private terraces, an infinity pool, a coffee bar, a library, and outdoor dining areas.
A spa and an outdoor movie theatre are also on the property, which is only a short distance from the shore. A short swim from the shoreline will bring you to a tiny but stunning coral patch home to seahorses, vibrant fish, and anemones that wave their tentacles. This is unquestionably barefoot heaven at its finest.
