Part of

The story

I went to Zanzibar for the first time in 2023. It was amazing to say the least! I discovered a world different from the one I knew. A world not chasing capital gains. A culture that does not revolve around a 9-5 work day.

In my years as an architect and entrepreneur, spending a full day on the beach was never an option. I used to bring a laptop at the beach to keep up with things at the office. In Zanzibar I discovered a culture that lives in Paradise. A place that shows the abundance you truly have. And a place that lets you enjoy life.

The people use the philosophy of HAKUNA MATATA – which literally translates to “No Worries.” This is why we decided to create AZURE – a resort where you can experience the true happiness and freedom of life. With NO worries period!

Our Values

At AZURE we want out clients to connect with nature.
To find new adventures, and craft new experiences never thought of before!

When we designed AZURE, we wanted to bring one the most beautiful places on Planet Earth closer to people like us. That is why AZURE is not just a place for vacation, but also a place where you can invest! We help our clients with purpose driven investments, while developing local communities in this picturesque paradise.

1

Why Africa?

Africa is an absolutely beautiful place on Earth, where nature thrives and human intervention is symbiotic with the environment. There is an enormous potential to reconnect humanity with 
nature, while creating consistent ROI.

2

Sustainable design

We use local materials and workforce, designing timeless projects with the environment in mind. The copious amounts of sunlight give us the opportunity to use solar energy to power our projects, in alignment with the SDG.

Hakuna matata

In the Western World we have lost connection with who we are, driven by profits and the chase of returns. We have a chance to live worries free, under the palm tree.

Like the locals say: pole pole!

Why invest?

In the past months, we managed to put together a talented team!
Seasoned investors, along with businesses in Europe, Middle East and Africa are now part of AZURE.
These partnerships will generate ROIs and amazing memories for our guests!

AZURE is scheduled to be developed in 2024 and finished in early 2025. It consists of 37 individual housing units with
1 , 2 and 3 bedrooms. All units are located on the beachfront of Sunset Bay in Michamvi, Zanzibar. Each house will have its own private pool, garden, outdoor kitchen and will be equipped with a smart house system, solar panels and comes fully furnished.

The resort will have a restaurant, large communal areas, a large pool, restaurant, and a Jetty Bar.
When the development is completed, we will hand over management and administration to an international
hospitality management company that will continue to provide amazing service and client experience to clientele all
over the world!
