Formerly known as Emerson & Green, this gem of a hotel is famous for its intimate tower top open-air restaurant being one of the most sought-after places to dine in Zanzibar.

This imaginatively converted Sultan’s Palace is now an eclectic mix of themed, supremely charming rooms. Each is flamboyantantly designed, dreamily reminiscent of magical Arabian Nights, including opulent stone baths and highly creative use of space and lighting incorporating grand antiques, dramatic color and the open-air.

A wondrous bohemian chic is effortlessly attained, and staying here is an unforgettably funky experience.
