Its prime beachfront location in Stone Town, along with its large pool and relaxed atmosphere make it an ideal place for families with kids of all ages to soak up the sun.

The unique Swahili bedframe and array of antique furniture in the hotel’s 37 en suite rooms creates a distinctive atmosphere, with some of the rooms boasting magnificent sea views.
