Get lost on the 32-acre property, a 300-meter-long stretch of private beach on the main island of Unguia, known for breathtaking sunsets. Designed to be ecologically and socially responsible, the Jestico + Whiles luxurious retreat features paintings from local artists and superbly crafted design details that evoke the island’s African, Indian, Arab and European heritage and abundant materials.

Relax on a traditional Dhow at sunset, or take exotic excursions to visit a Giant Aldabran Tortoise colony on Prison Island, and sightings of the rare Red Colobus Monkey in the Jozani forest. The retreat’s sustainability includes its own wells cleaned by its desalination plant and an ‘Evening Breeze’ environmentally efficient space-cooling system.
