Residential phase one of Zanzibar's Blue Amber resort launched

The first residential phase of the Blue Amber resort in Zanzibar has been launched, consisting of 47 luxury double-storey villas, available for sale to both local and foreign buyers.
“For the first time in history, non-Tanzanian residents will be able to invest in property on the tropical island,” says Blue Amber managing director Saleh Said. “The Blue Amber resort, initially launched early in 2017 as the Zanzibar Amber Resort, will enable non-Tanzanian residents to buy residential property in Zanzibar on 99-year leases with the option to extend ownership by 49 years.”

Local materials

The villas are set within a private estate with views of either the ocean, lakes, or golf course. Locally sourced materials such as sand render and coral stone cladding will be used in the construction of the villas in a move to honour local tradition. Climate control measures include optimal orientation on the site as well as natural shading and ventilation methods. Villas in phase one are designed with entrances that have an immediate visual connection to the outdoor pool and golf course beyond.

Property owners, as well as their spouses and children under 25, are eligible for Zanzibar residence permits, and residence status is valid for as long as buyers remain owners.

Prices for the villas in phase one range from $670,000 to $1.7m.
