A Honeymoon for Food Lovers at The Residence Zanzibar

The Residence Zanzibar’s Honeymoon for food lovers

Once the band plays, the cake’s cut, and the bouquet thrown, there is one final part of every wedding to look forward to… the honeymoon. If there is one trip for which phones should definitely be off and itineraries should be nearly blank, it’s the honeymoon. And if there is one trip to really indulge in the things you and your husband-to-be love, it’s the honeymoon. Assisting with the post-wedding gastronomic splurge, The Residence Zanzibar offers the ultimate honeymoon for food lovers with an array of delicious dishes; local cuisine and a cooking experience that will help honeymooners get a true taste of the ‘Spice Island’.

With the help of the Executive Chef at the resort, the hotel will create tailor-made itineraries for each couple allowing their taste buds to experience an array of flavours. During a hands-on cooking class, newlyweds will get to learn about the history behind the spice trade, as well as the healing properties behind the different spices only found in Zanzibar. Using these different spices to create traditional dishes, each participant will learn how to cook authentic Swahili cuisine, as well as have the opportunity to recreate each dish at home with the assistance of the hotel’s recipe cards.

To continue the foodie fun, there are two delicious dining options. Overlooking the ocean The Dining Room offers a range of international dishes with some Zanzibari twists, whilst the Pavilion Restaurant combines Indian, Arabic and Mediterranean cuisines in a beautiful setting. When patrons are full, they can relax and retreat in one of the resort’s 66 luxurious stand-alone villas, all featuring modern amenities, in-door and out-door showers, as well as a private swimming pools and deck, or visit the Ila Spa to indulge in one of the hotel’s signature treatments.
