This 19th-century Zanzibar country house was once the residence of Princess Salome, the offspring of a sultan and a concubine, and is now leased to the House of Wonders travel company by the royal family of Al Buseid. Exotically furnished with local antiques, colonial furniture, Persian carpets, and Arab tiles, the manor is surrounded by 18 acres of walled private orchards and verdant tropical gardens overflowing with bougainvillea. The four enormous bedrooms have four-poster beds with mosquito nets. Ask for the lovely Princess Salome room, which has nine double windows overlooking the ocean. Breakfast is included; lunch and dinner are available by request.
