Place Description

Yoga & Mindfulness Retreats Susanne Nebel

Enjoy an active time-out at the white sandy beach of Jambiani, 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.

This retreat at the Villa Bahati Zanzibar offers a mix of relaxation and activity, with mindfulness practice and yoga on the airy rooftop terrace, in the tropical garden or on the beach. 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 Kizimikazi. Our Jambiani eco & culture tour provides opportunities to learn about the biodiversity of the east coast and the culture of its Swahili people.

Eco-friendly Villa Bahati accommodates 14 people, with 6 guest rooms around a spacious courtyard, and direct access to the tropical garden and beach. We offer vegetarian Zanzibarian delicacies on a half-board basis, herbal teas, lemongrass tea, fresh coconuts, coffee and fresh juices, available during the day.

Villa Bahati Zanzibar proudly supports community projects and women empowerment groups, such as Safi Sana Zanzibar. The women have been trained to design and produce home textiles, bags and fashion pieces from authentic African textiles. A Safi Sana bag is yours when joining the retreat.
