Weddings & Events

For weddings in Zanzibar, look no further than The Residence Zanzibar, where nature provides the most astounding backdrop to the wedding of your dreams and our dedicated wedding planner brings every last exquisite detail together to create a perfect day of lasting memories. Say “I do” in the beautiful setting of our gorgeous and immaculately groomed lawns, or barefoot on the beach as the leaves of the palm trees rustle in the breeze and the ocean gently kisses the sand. Raise a toast to your romance among family and friends, the sky aglow with a glorious sunset.

The Residence Zanzibar also provides an ideal venue for meetings and executive retreats, which can be held amid the quiet sophistication of The Library. Built almost entirely from glass with views across the gardens, The Library can accommodate up to 60 people for meetings and seminars or private dining. Elegantly furnished and equipped with modern amenities such as LCD projector and screen, it also has a picturesque terrace, lit by candles at night.
