Ycona Luxury Resort is a brand new, family-owned boutique eco-resort due to launch mid-2023 on the East Coast of Zanzibar in the Marumbi area.
Forty independent villas, spread over 60,000 sqm, will be on offer including luxury beach eco-villas, luxury family villas (2 or 3 bedrooms) and jungle suites – each with its own private garden, pool, jacuzzi and panoramic rooftop to enjoy the stunning views over the Indian Ocean. The villas will be modern in design – with an African feel, promoting privacy, immersion into nature and romance.
Ycona is all about the “4Y”: the new generation resort 4.0 must act EthicallY, ResponsiblY, SustainablY, without compromising LuxurY”. “Y-Not” experiences will include the beautiful 500m white sandy private beach, pool, 4 restaurants (the fine dining one being heart-shaped, for beautiful, Instagram-able drone pictures and another presenting the farm-to-table concept) and 3 bars.
On the tropical lakes they are building a wellness centre with spa, outdoor and indoor gym, yoga patio, jungle trail for jogging or biking and a boutique.
There are also beautiful spice and botanic gardens where complimentary tours are scheduled daily, a kids’ area, as well as an arts & crafts centre, where local artisans will be offering complimentary classes.
