A beautiful entrance to the hotel with high ceilings and local Zanzibar artifacts on display.
A stunning heritage building in the heart of Stonetown overlooking the sea. It is 3 storeys tall and painted white.
With high ceilings, shuttered windows and cool white walls, the rooms are built in the traditional Swahili manner, the size being dictated by the length of the mangrove poles that make that reach up to the ceilings. Adorned with arched niches, antique plates and brass lamps; and featuring traditionally carved furniture with basket weave and ceramic inlay, the rooms are predominantly royal blue and white. Four-poster, net draped beds dominate, offset by delicate side tables, vanity units and louver doors spilling out to the balconies which have free-standing hammocks. All our rooms are equipped with 24-hour room service, air-conditioning, WIFI, direct-dial phone, in-room satellite TV, mini bar, private safe, hair driers, mosquito nets, bathrobe and slippers and umbrellas.
Constructed so that the waves of the Indian ocean lap to within inches of its open windows and the dhows pass within metres of its tables, the Baharia Restaurant features fretwork screens, Omani carvings, Persian rugs and bright Swahili artifacts. The Zanzibar cuisine meanwhile, blends freshly caught seafood, fresh spices, luscious fruit and delicately flavoured vegetables. The hotel has a pool bar, terrace bar and a coffee shop and offers 24 hour room service.
