New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

The very mention of Zanzibar - the beautiful and historic spice island lying just off the coast of Tanzania - is enough to conjure up a multitude of mental images that are both exotic and striking. It is this emotional reaction that has caused this Indian Ocean island to become one of the world’s most sought-after holiday destinations.

A diver or beach lover's paradise, the famous 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar is a luxurious and exotic destination, and there's plenty to discover away from the stunning beaches. The island's capital Stone Town (55km) is a captivating labyrinth of narrow streets and winding alleyways. Lose yourself in the buzz of the markets, delight your senses in the bustling bazaars, and check out the many mosques and grand Arab residences.

The Island Pongwe 4*

Find yourself at The Island Pongwe: a complete oasis of four-star luxury and place that oozes elegance and modernity - where guests can leave the world of work and stress behind them. 

Set on a secluded island and on a natural coral rock in the quiet Pongwe bay, this resort is purpose-built for adult travellers and offers some unique features that are a great introduction to life in Zanzibar.
