This hotel is amazing...and kid friendly. The rooms are all different and make you feel like you are living in the days of the Sultan. Our room had a massive bed, outdoor patio and spiral staircase leading to a loft for the kids. We stayed one night in another room and it had an outdoor shower (indoor also).
The roof top restaurant serves 5 course meals every night. The kids eat for half price. The food and sunsets were incredible.
The staff is warm, friendly and helpful. LAUNDRY IS FREE!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An inspired and lovingly restored Merchant’s House, this multi-storied small Boutique hotel has an inner courtyard, eleven unique antiques-filled rooms, and two 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’ hosts one of Stonetown’s most renowned restaurants offering a stylish ambiance amidst the sound of the calls to prayer from the town’s many mosques. The five course ‘Taste Safari’, prepared daily by our Zanzibari chefs, is seafood based and celebrates the freshest and best the market has to offer each morning. The sunset hour is an integral and pleasurable part of the experience so diners are encouraged to arrive at around 6pm to enjoy a ‘Sundowner’ before dinner. On the Ground floor The Secret Garden, set amidst lushly landscaped hidden ‘Ruins’, open to the skies, has a Zanzibari inspired A La Carte Menu. Look out for live music performed by The Dhow Countries Music Academy. Open for Lunch and Dinner. ... more less
