Welcome to the Soul - Zanzibar

The new residential resort on the beautiful east coast of Zanzibar. The Soul is the first Residential Development in Zanzibar based on the Condominium Act allowing foreign ownership with full investment protection of the Government of Zanzibar.

Only 400 meters from the breathtaking white sandy beach of Paje, The Soul residents will be embedded in a lush tropical landscape surrounding a beach like lagoon. Modern architecture and; the use of high-quality, durable materials, all based on a state-of-the-art sustainable infrastructure built on permaculture principles will ensure a safe and comfortable stay for you, and; your guests guarantee a secure and value growing investment. 

The Tourism Sector has lately been growing by 15% per annum creating an enormous demand for additional rooms every year. This robust growth together with the annual GDP growth of above 7%, will drive the market for the beautifully designed apartments and the entire resort, and will generate handsome returns on investment and appreciation of capital invested. 

The management of the Soul will support you with long term rentals and of course, assist you and your family and friends during your stay at your apartment making it an unforgettable time on this beautiful Island. The management will also offer the option to add your residence to the rental pool of the Soul which will be professionally managed on a short-term rental -in a Hotel or AirBnB manner.

The expected Nnet return for a long term rental is at around 8% and for the rental pool it is estimated at above 20%, based on modest assumptions of today’s market rates.
