Enriching the guest experience is at the heart of every stay at a Residence Collection resort, with three exceptional Indian Ocean island hotels to choose from. With each offering its own sense of place and reflecting its environs, woven through all three are the same legendary hallmarks of excellence and personal service.
The Residence Maldives
Surrounded by a calm, turquoise lagoon, this 94-villa resort is a heavenly retreat for a luxury holiday, set just 45 miles north of the equator. Highlights include the PADI-5 dive centre, Spa by Clarins and complimentary sunrise and sunset yoga classes. What’s more, a second sister hotel is opening on a separate island – accessible via a bridge – that has been designed with families in mind.
The Residence Mauritius
This classic Mauritian hotel has been a firm favourite with Indian Ocean travellers for many years, creating an authentic space inspired by the island’s turn of the century plantation houses and celebrating local culture with creole nights and saga dancers. There’s a wonderful stretch of sand and calm lagoon perfect for beach days and the butler service in all rooms and suites adds the luxe-factor.
The Residence Zanzibar
A secluded hideaway in 32 hectares of tropical gardens and bordered by a pristine mile-long beach, this all-villa resort on Zanzibar Island – just off the coast from Tanzania – offers guests a wonderfully unique experience. On the water there’s watersports to be enjoyed from the Boat House, while on land guests can explore the gardens by bicycle or take a wander through the petting zoo and bird sanctuary.
