On the western coast of Zanzibar and flanked by the Indian Ocean, Stone Town is a historical trading centre like no other. The town was largely built in the 19th century and as you explore the labyrinth of narrow streets, overhanging balconies and huge, intricately carved wooden doors with brass studs and heavy locks, you will discover a place largely untouched by time. Visiting the Zanzibar museum, the Arab fort and Sultan’s Palace, you will find a place where the pungent perfume of exotic spices fills the air and local restaurants serve delicious Zanzibari and international cuisine. A place steeped in history and character, Stone Town is well worth exploring as a day trip or for a couple of nights either before or after a beach stay.
This uniquely styled boutique resort, emulating a Sultan’s palace, offers a total of 30 villas which are designed to characterise classic Swahili architecture featuring dramatic arches, cement Baraza benches and intricate hand carved cement decorations.
