An African-born company, NEWMARK, with over 20 years of experience managing prestigious and distinctive properties, is ideally suited to lead Blue Amber’s global sales and marketing campaign as well as the seamless daily operation of Shirazi Resort & Villas. With its ethos and long tradition of applying excellence to all its endeavours, Blue Amber adds further kudos to NEWMARK’s meticulously-curated selection of luxury properties that each represents unique experiences, while setting the benchmark for authentic hospitality and diverse cultural richness.

Ribboning along 4 kilometres of magnificent, unspoilt Indian Ocean coastline – and occupying 410 hectares of tropical landscape on the north-eastern side of Zanzibar – Blue Amber will attract property investors and sun-seekers from around the globe. Those looking for their own private tropical island escape will find Blue Amber thoroughly enticing. Set within this magical enclave, Shirazi Resort & Villas promises to be an idyllic destination for both families and romantic couples alike. The resort will boast two barefoot luxury eateries, a spa, yoga pavilion and gym, as well as a beach club and pool replete with a pool bar. The easy-going ambience will be shabby-chic and stylish, threaded together by genuine East African service and hospitality. There will also be an impressive shoreline aqua leisure centre where both residents and visitors may enjoy a multifunctional play space that includes a comprehensive watersports facility, along with a beach eatery and a selection of thoughtfully curated retail stores.

Zanzibar is a year-round leisure destination, with endless white cashmere sands and warm cobalt waters. Safe and politically stable, it’s a dream destination for investors wanting to enjoy a tropical island escape at any time of the year.  Offering a secure investment for a select few, the first phase of Blue Amber’s development is currently selling and includes 54 luxury pool villas, a leisure centre and premium resort hotel – all with magnificent ocean views

When not in residence, villa owners can enlist NEWMARK to capably oversee and manage their property until their return. NEWMARK offers a fully integrated property management service and can also let properties to screened tenants as part of a rental pool programme. This offers attractive returns to investors.

Owning a slice of East Africa’s evocative azure coastline now couldn’t be simpler. Blue Amber has designed investment to be easy; NEWMARK ensures operations are professionally managed and effortless to owners. Between them, the unimaginable becomes reality – and kicking back in style on the sunshine beaches of Zanzibar is but a short flight away.

Comments Neil Markovitz, CEO of NEWMARK Hotels, Reserves, Lodges & Residences: “I foresee immense investment potential in Zanzibar and have personally invested in a small tranche of this extraordinary island through the acquisition of boutique property Chuini Beach Lodge. I have strolled along the idyllic beach that fronts Blue Amber on many a sunrise and sunset, and can personally vouch that this is truly a unique opportunity to gain a Robinson Crusoe island lifestyle paired with first-class amenities.”
