This award-winning boutique hotel in the heart of Zanzibar’s historic Stone Town is within walking distance to all the sights, including the Old Fort, the House of Wonders and the Hamamni Persian baths. Set within a tall, narrow building, Zanzibar Palace Hotel has just three rooms on each of its three floors. Inside each one is a story of Zanzibar’s history – an exotic combination of Arabian, Indian and English designs. Expect antiques, Persian rugs, rich silks and beautifully carved shutters or doors.
The cool, air-conditioned lobby invites relaxation after a spice tour or an exploration of the city. The onsite restaurant specialises in fresh seafood and game meats, while the bar offers a selection of cocktails and fine wines.
There is also a wonderful spa at the Zanzibar Palace Hotel, offering a wide selection of treatments and therapies. This is an ideal place to soothe bodies tired from hiking through monkey-filled forests, scuba diving offshore coral reefs or wandering the interesting city streets.
