Being a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the hotel has been styled to represent the epitome of Swahili style, ethnic elegance and Arabic opulence. This is a great base to explore the town and nearby attractions. We do recommend to have a few nights here followed by a few more days in the coastal areas to give a complete Zanzibar experience.
