The Zanzibar Palace Hotel

An award-winning hotel in the heart of Stone Town

A uniquely styled hotel offering personal service and modern comforts

A historical house lovingly renovated into a traditional, boutique hotel

With an eclectic mix of cultural influences, the Zanzibar Palace Hotel is a distinctive property hidden away in the streets of central Stone Town. It is an ideal base from which to explore all the sights of the town as most are within walking distance of the hotel. Thanks to the prime location of Stone Town on Zanzibar Island, excursions are within an easy driving distance. The friendly owner and staff will put you immediately at ease and will help with any arrangements for sight-seeing.

With just three rooms on each of its three floors, the Zanzibar Palace offers a surprising variety of accommodation to suit different tastes. The bedrooms are a combination of traditional furnishing and modern comforts with antique furniture, locally-crafted four-poster beds, wi-fi and air-conditioning. There are two luxurious suites on the uppermost floor that provide stunning views of Stone Town. French-style dinners are served in their cosy, private restaurant with fresh, local seafood the highlight of the seasonal dinner menu, along with high quality meat dishes and vegetarian options.

Stone Town itself offers multiple opportunities for exploration: The Old Fort, the House of Wonders and the Palace Museum are all worth a visit. Shopping in the markets is a great way to find wonderful souvenirs, meanwhile local festivals of lively music and colourful processions take place in February and July. Excursions out of the town include local spice tours, day trips to the beach, a visit to Prison Island and the Jozani Forest national park. Several diving operators provide dive trips from Stone Town and the hotel staff will advise on the best ones to choose. Back at the hotel, you can relax with a variety of treatments in their luxury spa.
