The Building

Previously managed by a Dutch group it is now owned by a local Zanzibarian company. With a lot of experience in tourism, local network of handyman and lots of hard work, the building was slowly and carefully renovated over the past years to offer en suite bathrooms  for most of the rooms. Renovation and conservation of this historical building is an ongoing challenge, only using local and traditional materials such as boritis (colonnade), chalk and clay. Room and bathrooms upgrade has been done carefully between keeping Zanzibari tradition while upgrading to 21st century comfort.
