Our spacious en-suite rooms refer to the ancient time when the Arabs praised the island's ample, fresh water supply and friendly inhabitants, naming the whole East African coast Zinj el Barr - ‘land of the black people'.

For Zenji Hotel this refers to the rich traditional culture of the local habitants of Zanzibar.

Go back to the times when Zanzibar was governed by different sultans. Dream of Arabic tales, about sultans and princesses between shining ornaments and tints of gold...

We have 1 suite room. The suite room has a balcony.

Zanzibar is known as Spice Island. Peppers, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg are some of the many spices found on the island. For the people of Zanzibar, spices and useful plants are a vital part of everyday life and a rich element in the island's strong and vibrant culture. The tropical climate of Zanzibar makes it the perfect place for exotic flowers and fruits to grow. Jasmine is an exotic and aromatic smelling flower that grows in Zanzibar. It is used during traditional ceremonies such as marriage.

'House of Wonders' was built by Sultan Bargash in 1883. It was the first building in East Africa having both electricity and running water. A miracle (wonder) in those days. 'House of Wonder' is nowadays called the Museum of Culture.

We have 2 rooms with a bathroom inside the room.
