Sitting majestically on the beachfront in the heart of Stone Town, the Park Hyatt Zanzibar is probably the smartest hotel in Stone Town. It has a super location on the edge of the historic old town so that you can easily explore its labyrinth of winding alleys, bustling markets, mosques on foot. Marvel at the famous Zanzibari doors with their magnificent ornate wooden carvings, and then retreat to the quiet haven of the hotel. All the town’s key attractions are easily accessible by foot including Forodhani Gardens, the Old Fort, the Old Dispensary, the Peace Memorial Museum, the Palace Museum, and the House of Wonders.
Back at the hotel you have a choice of dining options showcasing both authentic cuisine and more casual fare. The main hotel includes a library and veranda, living room and a dining room with an outdoor terrace. The design is relaxed and comfortable, featuring eclectic interiors to create a homely feel. The pool lounge specialises in local fish dishes alongside western salads and lighter meals.
