Superior guest experience at Dhow Palace Hotel

The Dhow, being the heart beat of the east African culture, has been carrying people and treasures to and from Zanzibar for hundreds of years. Today the Dhow Palace Boutique Hotel serves as a meeting point of people and artefacts from all over the world, in a truly Zanzibar style. Originally the home of a rich merchant, this graceful building has stood for more than one hundred and fifty years in the heart of stone town, bearing witness to the events of Zanzibar’s history and finally being restored to an elegant hotel. Being right in the heart of stone town you do not have to go far to find the shops, restaurants’ and the other historical attractions. Walking around the hotel you get the feeling of being in a museum dedicated to furniture, ornaments and pictures which represent all the styles which have been brought to Zanzibar over the years. Traditional Swahili beds, furnished with antiques. Dhow palace now has thirty rooms, fully access equipped with air conditioning, telephone, cables television, hotspot wireless internet, fridge, water heater and hair dryer, most of them with balconies facing the back courtyard of the swimming pool
