Emerson Terrace

Emerson on Hurumzi

An exotic and luxurious hotel in the capital town of Zanzibar

Offering a variety of rooms for groups, couples and individuals

A beautifully refurbished building packed with style, history and tradition

From a 19th Century merchant’s house, the Emerson on Hurumzi has undergone dramatic refurbishment that combines the elegance of the period in which it was built with the comfort of the 21st century. Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar Island, is full of life and, from the hotel’s convenient location, guests can explore the bustling markets and beautiful beaches.

The bedrooms at Emerson on Hurumzi vary in size and budget, but are among some of the most distinctive in Zanzibar. Stained-glass windows, wooden lattice-work and canopied four-poster beds create an exotic and luxurious atmosphere. The view from the rooftop restaurant provides an enchanting backdrop while you dine on Persian and Omani dishes prepared with authentic ingredients and served with faithful attention to the local traditions.

After treating yourself to gifts and souvenirs in the Stone Town markets, there are numerous historical buildings you can visit including the House of Wonders, the Arab Fort and the People’s Palace. Further afield you can venture out by boat to nearby islands, or take guided tours of the sights in the interior like the spice farms, Jozani Forest and historic slave chambers. Along the Zanzibar coasts are several incredible beaches that offer various water sport activities, from snorkelling to windsurfing.
