Discover Spice Island

The very mention of Zanzibar – the beautiful and historic spice island lying just off the coast of Tanzania – is enough to conjure up a multitude of mental images that are both exotic and striking. Begin the journey in Stone Town where there is a unique architectural and cultural mix.

Located in the heart of Stone Town, it has taken three years to restore this family home to the highest standards sought after by the modern traveler. The hotel’s opulent interior instantly whisks you away to a far away time and place. It allows you to experience the true essence of Zanzibar history, and envisage the splendor of Sultans and merchants of days gone by. Each piece of furniture, each door, and even the hotel’s carved windows are genuine antiques collected from all over the world. From Morocco to Afghanistan, India to Mozambique, each item evokes a blissful sense of the life of the Sultans who ran a trading empire which encompassed the entire Indian Ocean and often called to port in Zanzibar.

Discover a destination off the coast of Tanzania, steeped in legend and mystery, an evocation of the exotic. Stroll the tumbling streets of Swahili, inhale the lingering fragrance of the spice plantations. Create your own personal paradise, your own kind of luxury by beginning with taking a deep breath of fresh Indian Ocean air. Relax and unwind in luxury making the most of the breath-taking views.
