New wellness-focused retreat launches in Tanzania
POSTED 01 Nov 2018 . BY Andrew Manns
A Tanzanian wellness-focused getaway has opened its doors on the isle of Kendwa in the Zanzibar archipelago.

Developed by Czech financier and filmmaker Václav Dejmar and designed by Jestico + Whiles, Zuri Zanzibar occupies a 300-metre stretch of coastline and features 55 thatched roof villas, five restaurants, three bars, a 32m infinity pool, jacuzzi, spice garden, and watersports centre.

The resort – which has been in the pipeline for ten years – also runs a wellness programme, providing guests with access to yoga classes, massage hideaways, and an al fresco 'wild fitness gym'.

Speaking on the launch, Jean-Francois Laporte, the retreat’s development manager, claimed it was the "first true lifestyle resort to be developed in this part of the Indian Ocean".

"We want our guests to experience it like a micro-universe," he added.
