Zanzibar Accommodations

A visit to the Zanzibar Archipelago is quite popular after a dusty safari adventure. It is a great place to unwind and enjoy the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. 

Depending on your needs and budget there are many favourites from the south to the north coast which I typically recommend. While working on a booking today, I was inspired by the beauty of the island to write this short blog about a few "hot" (pun intended) Zanzibar accommodation options.

Stone Town & Area

Kisiwa House - boutique hotel located in central Stone Town.

Park Hyatt Zanzibar - Spacious rooms with elegant guest rooms and authentic cuisine. A hotel for those looking for a "westernized" option.
