The Swahili House

A beautifully restored, traditional hotel in Stone Town

An ideal location to take advantage of the sights and sounds of Stone Town

The Swahili House combines timeless elegance with all the comforts a modern tourist needs

The Swahili House is a restored 19th century Indian merchant’s house, decorated in the traditional Swahili style, surrounding a charming courtyard. The world heritage site of Stone Town offers numerous opportunities for shopping, sight-seeing and a chance to discover the local culture of Zanzibar.

Swahili House has 22 air-conditioned rooms. Many rooms have open bathrooms with both a shower and a large stone bath in which you can relax and unwind after exploring Stone Town. The best feature of the Swahili House is its large rooftop area complete with a bar and restaurant.

Guests can explore the labyrinth of streets and bustling markets of Stone Town, as well as cultural monuments like the House of Wonders. Further afield and highly recommended are the great Zanzibar beaches with plenty of water sports on offer, or just the space to kick-back and relax.
