Retreat location

Zanzibar is a magical paradise. It is a jewel in the ocean, surrounded by beaches that rate among the finest in the world. You can swim, snorkel or just lounge the hours away while enjoying white sands and Aquamarine endless waters. The island has a unique atmosphere and a mesmerizing mix of influences from Africa, Arabia, India, and Europe.

Jambiani is beautiful picturesque village at the South East Coast of Zanzibar. The location has its own uniqueness with a beautiful long stretch of coastline with soft white sand and turquoise water, that is embedded in local culture and communities. It is one of the best places on the island to gain insight into local life as you share the beach with local Zanzibar communities: you can see the fishermen return with their catch in the early morning, leaving their dhow boats dotted across the shoreline, and the women tend seaweed farms.

Zanzibar is so much more than romantic coastline and blissful sunsets. This Island offers a kaleidoscope of sights, smells, and tastes which feed your soul and leave you wanting to return again. Mie has lived in Tanzania for many years and is very familiar and capable to work in Zanzibar.
