Flame Tree Cottages is a small beach hotel with an aura of tranquility and a feeling of spaciousness with its lush tropical garden lined with coconut palms, frangipani, and banana trees. Short steps at the front lead to the beach and to the turquoise blue of the Indian Ocean.

The Zanzibar Yoga Retreats are hosted at the Flame Tree Cottages which is a hotel visited by tourists of all kinds, not only yoga practitioners. It is situated in Nungwi, the northern tip of the island, which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Zanzibar. It faces west for perfect sighting of the setting sun. To watch the sunset with the traditional fishing dhows sailing out to the fishing ground or coming back with their catch in the foreground is magical.

Flame Tree Cottages has individually styled cottages with spacious rooms and large verandas. All rooms have en-suire facilities, air conditioners, ceiling fans, and a refrigerator. Some cottages have a sitting room.

Relax in a hammock with a good book or sunbathe in the area facing the turquoise blue ocean and white beach, or just lounge around the swimming pool in the garden. The tropical garden has a mixture of coconut palms, casuarinas trees, frangipani trees, banana trees, as well as flowerbeds full of colorful plants set amidst the lawns. %The garden view rooms enjoy a country atmosphere with a bird song. An in-house dhow (traditional wooden boat) takes people for fishing, snorkeling, and sunset sails. For trips to Mnemba Island, a picnic lunch is provided. Hammocks and loungers are distributed in the sun bathing area and in the garden around the swimming pool.


Morning yoga classes will be taught by Marisa and sunset fitness classes will be coached by Oori. In 6 fitness sessions Oori will provide you with the tools and knowledge to develop and continue a fitness program by yourself without the need of an instructor or gym.

TRX (short for total-body resistance exercise) is a form of suspension training that uses body weight exercises to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete the exercises.


TABATA training is one of the most popular forms of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It consists of eight rounds of ultra-high-intensity exercises in a specific 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off interval.

Retreat locatie

Zanzibar can be described as both mysterious and romantic. It is also the evocation of exotic, an archipelago nestled in the Indian Ocean which is 37 km off shore from Tanazania. It is a destination that is not only mysterious but legendary as well.

From this remote outpost, at the hub of the monsoon trading routes, history was enacted, journeys of discovery were planned, Sultanate empires were established, and the first medieval global village was founded. Zanzibar retains the imprint of its historic legacy in the tumbling streets of Stone Town, in the Arabic-inflected Swahili language and the rare antiques of the bazaars and markets.

The haloes of idyllic beach that adorn the islands coast and the fragrant spice plantations that blossom in the interior make Zanzibar the ultimate Indian Ocean destination and the jewel in East Africas crown.

Flame Tree Cottages, where in the yoga retreat will take place, is situated on the northwestern side of the Nungwi Peninsula on the north coast of Zanzibar. Nungwi is ideally situated for swimming and diving. You can see the most spectacular sunsets on this side of the island.
