Official Description (provided by the hotel)

It is comprised of only two private beach villas with pool, Villa Lisa and Villa Tatu. Both of these villas can accommodate up to 20 people and provide its guests with a relaxed and extremely peaceful atmosphere in a breathtaking environment. There are no other hotels and accommodations around in the area and it is just perfect for a tranquil and private vacation in Zanzibar. The privacy of the resort of Milele Villas Zanzibar is suited ideally for families, honeymooners and for team building in groups up to 20 persons. The unique and separated location of the private villas enables a perfect place of absolute silence and privacy in Zanzibar. Due to our small size with only two villas we are able to provide great attention to a detailed and personalized service in a unique accommodation.Milele Villas Zanzibar is the first hotel on Zanzibar of its kind and stands out from all other Zanzibar villas! It is the first self-sufficient and environmentally friendly accommodation on the island! Electricity for our private villas is produced by solar panels and we collect rain water for using in our resort. Hot water is produced by solar heaters. Beside our eco-friendly concept we support the local community of Fukuchani. ... more   less

“We stayed in Villa Lisa, with our 3 very small children. All rooms were incredible, but take your own cot if you need one.”
  • The swinging chair, in the Villa Lisa grounds.
  • One of the bedrooms
  • The bathrooms were open plan within the bedrooms, which was lovely.
  • From the second level lounge area, overlooking the beach.
