Stone Town, Zanz­ibar

Friday - - Recipe Cards -

Zanz­ibar is not yet a main­stream des­ti­na­tion – which means the South­ern-Hemi­sphere Is­land’s sunny sum­mers and co­ral reefs dot­ted with dol­phins are fresh sights you haven’t seen be­fore on In­sta­gram. Stone Town, the 19th-cen­tury hub of clove trade and a Unesco World Her­itage site is the best place to dis­cover all of Zanz­ibar’s cul­tural won­ders – the House of Won­ders mu­seum, 17th-cen­tury Omani palace Old Fort, sea-fac­ing Forod­hani Gar­dens and old bazaars.

In the Seyyida ho­tel – the Zanz­ibar royal fam­ily’s for­mer res­i­dence – ev­ery room has its own canopied four-poster and the rooftop restau­rant – Lulu Lounge – of­fers panoramic vis­tas of the har­bour.

☞ From Dh500 per night. Call 00255 24223 8352 email info@the­seyyida-zanz­ibar.com.
