Zanzibar Palace

A leading boutique in the heart of the old town for many years now.

Zanzibar Palace has nine individually styled rooms and suites. Set over four floors, the rooms vary from standard sized guest rooms leading up to the fabulous roof top Dunai Suite with its open air bathroom and private sundeck. Dutch owned and run, this lovingly restored property has been a leading boutique in the heart of the old town for many years now.

 

The ground floor restaurant offers both fantastic food and an ambiance that brings local history alive through the mix of Arabic, Indian and colonial furnishings. The Belgian chef fuses European and Zanzibari techniques and ingredients to offer diners sophisticated plates of delicious food no matter what the time of day is. A luxury spa softens post safari or flight muscles and will polish you to perfection with a range of body scrubs and nail treatments. You could happily lose yourself here for days so take care to remind yourself that there’s so much more to see in Zanzibar!

? What is the location like and how long should I stay?
Zanzibar Palace is perfectly located within short walking distance of 'The House of Wonders' and nearly all Stone Towns other attractions. Our average client books for 1 or 2 nights, often at the end of their trip. We think this is ample time to explore Stone Town.



: (Zanzibar Palace don't tend to offer discounted rates as the average stay is only for a few nights and the rate is already very competitive. However, if you are looking for a longer stay please contact us and we can usually offer a reduced rate depending on the duration.

Room Descriptions & Facilities

Room and Suites

There are two standard rooms named Nadia and Rosewood, five suites named Kijani, Sultana, Shaba, Farizah and Arabica and two Palace suites named Sherali and Dunia.

For those who find stairs a difficulty, we would recommend one of the following first floor rooms; Nadia, Kijani or Farizah. Each room at Zanzibar Palace features air conditioning, high-pressure hot water, ceiling fans, spring box mattresses, mosquito nets, in-house telephone, digital safe, cable network TV, DVD player, bathrobes and hairdryer on request.

The suites are larger in size each with their own special features: Kijani is a three room suite with green décor; Sultana is a romantic open plan suite with a huge balcony; Shaba has a brass bed and copper coloured ornaments in the same footprint as Kijani with three rooms to the suite; Farizah is a huge open plan suite with an expansive balcony; and Arabica is Arabian in design with a small balcony on the third floor.

The Palace Suites have the wow-factor with the Sherali suite a Victorian inspired space, framed by colonial wooden panelled walls. These walls are in fact shutters and can be opened to let in the light, sounds and aromas of the stone town streets below.

The Dunia Suite is characterised by dark woods and gold, though the roof top open air bathroom accessed by a small staircase is the crowning glory. The high sultans four poster bed requires stools to reach the soft silks that encase you as you sleep like royalty. The open air bathroom and sundeck put you at the top of the Zanzibar Palace with breath taking panoramic city and ocean views . This is a lovely, but ultimately quirky suite. Honeymooners and romantics looking for that uniqueness and quintessential old world charm should take up residence at this Palace!

Whether maintaining their building or developing the skills of their staff, Zanzibar Palace’s care and attention to detail are first class. The team at Zanzibar Palace, though European in management and at the helm of the kitchen, are proud Zanzibari’s. They have worked together to create this luxurious yet informal gem. The kitchens are full of fresh local produce sourced from the island’s fishermen and farming families.

Zanzibar Palace - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff plus some genuine feedback from our clients below.


Zanzibar Palace is probably my top choice for Stone Town. The hotel is very clean and the service is faultless. The food is good, it is centrally located and even has a very good spa. Being centrally located means it’s great for getting out and about, but it does also mean a bit of noise at night. Overall, the service at Zanzibar Palace makes it good value and a very pleasant stay.
