Tropical Island Resorts & Beach Lodges on Zanzibar

Emerson & Green
The second tallest building in Stone Town Zanzibar, the hotel has been restored to its former glory when it was the residence of one of the richest men in the Swahili Empire. Atmosphere is of principal import as the furnishings are all original Zanzibari antiques of varied origins and styles that, together, create the impressions of Arabian Nights and sultan princesses escaping in the dead of the night for romance. The ten guestrooms are beautiful and romantic, each representing Zanzibari traditions in a distinct way.

Tropical Island Beach Lodges on Pemba

Fundu Lagoon
Fundu Lagoon is the epitome of "bare foot paradise" with a distinct Robinson Crusoe air in a remote and not easily accessible spot. It is a place for guests to relax and unwind in casual, yet elegant surroundings. Fundu is on Pemba Island, the sister island to Zanzibar lying across the Pemba Channel to the north. The hotel is situated on a remote and beautiful beach on the southwestern side of the island and is only accessible by boat. There are nineteen rooms, all the same and consisting of designer tents, set under makuti (thatch) roofs on wooden decks and each with a view over the sea.

While commonly called Zanzibar, the island's name is actually Unguja, and is part of the Zanzibar archipelago, which also includes Pemba. Zanzibar got engaged to Tanzania relatively recently, after a string of torrid affairs with the Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portuguese, Omani Arabs, Dutch and English. But it was the Shirazi Persians and the Omani Arabs who stayed to settle and rule - and it's their influence that lingers most strongly.

Zanzibar's Stone Town is one of the most fascinating places on Tanzania's east coast. It's a chaotic, and often crumbling, labyrinthine cluster of winding streets lined with whitewashed coral-rag houses with magnificently carved (but fast vanishing) brass-studded doors. There are endless little shops, bazaars, mosques, courtyards an old fort, two former sultans' palaces, two huge cathedrals, faded colonial mansions, a disused Persian-style public bathhouse and reminders of a once thriving slave trade. A combination of a beach resort and a stay in Stone Town is recommended.
