236 Hurumzi, Stone Town

Stone Town , Zanzibar

view web site ›'s insider take:

One of the most romantic hotels in Africa, 236 Hurumzi offers an immersion into the heady exoticism traditionally associated with Zanzibar. There's no pool, and the rooms lack modern conveniences like phones; instead, your unit is filled with original Zanzibar antiques, and you sleep in a regal bed draped with mosquito nets, piled with richly embroidered pillows, and scattered with jasmine flowers. Each of the 16 rooms is unique: The gigantic Ballroom has a wood-carved balcony running its length; the Keep Suite has its own tea house in a turret on the roof. Breakfast, included in the price, is served buffet-style in the rooftop restaurant, accompanied by stunning views of the Indian Ocean. A six-room annex at 240 Hurumzi, added in 2008, offers the same opulent sultan's style but with shared kitchen facilities—perfect for anyone looking to try their hand at grilling up a fresh catch from the market.

Closed in May.
