In far off Zanzibar ...

Paradise on a crescent beach of sherbet white sand. Domed pavilions straddle the ridge. Views filled with dreams of the spice routes. Exotic, exclusive, remote and relaxing. The name of this slice of heaven? Kilindi. Perhaps it's Swahili for perfect .........

That's paradise! Heaven! What a dream! I have to say, I've never seen anything more stunning and I have seen quite a lot of this world already, but this is unique. Photos are also doing the trick.

I wonder what the "outsiders" think of the "westerners" who stay in places like this. I imagine at least some of them are
happy that people are investing money in their country. I would love to stay in a place like this but I would be imagining again
if I thought I would ever make it to a place like Zanzibar. It's beautiful and exotic and judging by the other comments the
people in the region are friendly and kind and willing to show you a good time.

Looks absolutely gorgeous! Think the photos are amazing and the comments are quite entertaining.

These photos are so stunning they almost don't look real. Will get myself to Zanzibar, pronto!

Beautiful beyond words!

I'm not looking at this as some socio-economical statement; I'm just looking at it as a 3-dimensional work of art - and it's awesome. Beautifully done. The organic shapes and raw plaster look along with the ornate wooden shutters and appointments honor the historical architecure of northern Africa - from Timbuktu to Zanzibar! Congratulations to the designers on a stunning piece of work!
