We had such amazing few days at Milele Villas!  The property offers two exclusive private villas, along the solitary Fukuchani beach, which is a little off mass tourism in Zanzibar and really perfect for a relaxing stay without any stress. We had our own villa with a private pool, which was really perfect. We have planned lots of stuff...

We were a group of 8 staying at Villa Lisa and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable week. The location is very beautiful indeed, the accommodation is comfortable, the food is good and the staff are lovely. You need to be aware that the villas are off the grid so run on solar and generator power. The generator is...

This was my third stay in Milele Villas so obviously I love it.

Upon arrival, my family and closest friend were delighted by the charming cottage and beautiful views. The sunset and outdoor dining was charming. But by morning (after an evening of rain), the second floor bedroom was covered in dead and some live bugs/beetles. This infestation continued all day. A feral cat made his home on my pillow (because it's all...

Villa Lisa features an upstairs lounge, open to all sides, just thatched with a makuti (palm leaves) roof. Visits of feral animals can occur, especially when food is left uncovered. Our guests are being briefed about this on arrival. The phenomenon of beetles mentioned can occur during periods of heavy rain which we had throughout these days. Again, it is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Milele Villas Zanzibar is located directly at the secluded beach of Fukuchani on the northwest coast of Zanzibar. 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.
