Fusing a restored nineteenth-century Swahili sultan’s palace and Zanzibar’s first photographic studio, this multi-storied small hotel has an inner courtyard, eleven unique antiques-filled rooms, and one of Zanzibar’s best restaurants. All rooms are equipped with a small fridge, air conditioner, fan, and high ceiling mosquito net. The Rooftop Tea House Restaurant – The Seafood Based, Set Five Course ‘Taste Safari’ Degustation Menu is prepared daily by our Zanzibari Chefs. The Sunset Hour is an integral part of the experience, so Diners are encouraged to arrive at any time after 5.30p.m. to enjoy a ‘Sundowner’ before dinner, which is served at 7p.m. Reservations Recommended. The Secret Garden – set amidst lushly landscaped hidden ‘Ruins’, open to the skies, it has a Zanzibari inspired A La Carte Menu. Look out for live music performed by The Dhow Countires Music Academy. Open for Lunch and Dinner. Zanzibar Stone Town offers a unique cultural experience, fascinating street life, a range of restaurants, interesting shopping, annual Music and Film festivals such as Busara and ZIFF, and traditional music concerts at the Dhow Countries Music Academy. Zanzibar is small and easy to get around. Excursions to the coasts or boat trips to the marine parks, sandbanks and islands nearby are easily arranged. Spice tours, City tours, Cultural tours, Art and Architecture tours are best from town.
