Zanzibar: a spice island with rich heritage

Known as the “spice island”, Zanzibar boasts a storied history shaped by its pivotal role in the global spice trade during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The island celebrates a rich cultural heritage and unique flora and fauna. It offers excellent diving, snorkelling and kiteboarding opportunities in its turquoise waters.

The Four Seasons Resort Zanzibar aims to highlight these features, enriching the region’s vibrant hospitality landscape.

Ali Saeed Juma Albwardy, chairman of the board at Albwardy Investment, emphasised the opportunity to showcase Zanzibar’s natural beauty and cultural heritage through the new resort.

He expressed confidence in the project’s ability to enhance the region’s hospitality offerings while staying true to the legendary service that defines Four Seasons.
