Accomodations

Our hospitality is based on good taste and warmth, comfort and style. The 18 no smoking rooms are all unique; the ground floor looks into the courtyard and has high ceilings, several have balconies, some have sea views, some have a living area or mezzanine floor, but all are enclosed in this original ancient palace with cool, thick walls, Arabian beds, stucco decoration and carved doors, bringing you the essence of old Zanzibar with a twist of modern chic.

Wandering through the ancient corridors, your thoughts will drift to the past splendour of a lost era, and the secret memories, like a faint waft of incence, that this old palace jealously preserves.

At the ground floor in the lobby of the Room #1 , the TALE said that underground the big pillar on the left side, there is a rose- wooden box full of silver and gold coins with a sward on top to protect it... but we did not burry the place to verify!

But now this is not a tale that you can see the original Bububu railway train dated Union 1921, used by the former owner as support to the ceiling of the second floor. You can also breath the ancient era of this Palace, walking through the huge corridors.

Moreover, in the Room #15 at the first floor, you can see a picture dated around 1936 showing a young Prince from the Royal Family watching outside the sea front line, seated in the same position where the bed is now located

The Two General Room Categories that result from the imaginative use of the space named after the two original sites of the Old Stone Town: Forodhani - the seafront and garden area, Darajani - the market and bazaar area.

11 Darajani-Superior rooms are between 25 - 35 sqm meters and have all facilities listed and some have small suite area with typical Zanzibar features and details.

7 Forodhani-Deluxe rooms are 30-45sqm. Besides being more spacious than the Darajani Rooms also offer features such as sea-view, or mezzanine, or terrace, or courtyard balcony, or spectacular high ceilings.

Short Overview

Stone Town is now home to the new MASHARIKI PALACE Hotel. This is the Eastern Palace on the islands, once the seat of the Omani empire spanning a thousand miles, created by the first sultan of Zanzibar almost 200 years ago. The domicile of the Sultan's religious councillor is now restored beyond its former magnificence. The MASHARIKI PALACE Hotel is a privileged residence for travellers choosing refined hospitality in a historical setting.
