Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation at Villa Bahati Zanzibar


Enjoy an active time-out at Villa Bahati with yoga and meditation classes, an introduction to Swahili culture, people and eco-tours

Learn or deepen your mindfulness and yoga practice and find inner peace and serenity at the tranquil lagoon of Jambiani village.

Practice mindfulness and Hatha Yoga on the airy roof top terrace, in the tropical garden or on the beach.

Eco-friendly Villa Bahati accommodates 15 people, with 6 guest rooms around a spacious courtyard, direct access to the tropical garden, the beach and with our own spa treatments and massages. Refresh at our tikki-bar and swimming pool with spectacular view of the Indian Ocean.

Swim in the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon, walk mindfully on the beach, and perhaps you would like to swim with the dolphins of Kizimkazi? Visit the spice plantations, the giant turtles on Prison Island and enjoy snorkelling followed by a picknick on a sandbank and sail with a local outrigger boat – all highlights that our guests love.

Villa Bahati Zanzibar proudly supports the women sewing group Safi Sana Zanzibar. The women have been trained to design and produce home textiles, bags and fashion pieces from authentic African textiles. Now, with their own income, they are able to educate their children. A Safi Sana bag is yours when participating in the retreat.
