Zenana

The literal meaning of the word Zenana is “of the women” or “pertaining to women”. The Zenana are the inner apartments of a house in which the women of the family lived and was off-limits to men who were not members of the family. The room was designed to replicate paradise. The Russian influence came from the idea to use the paintings of Russian artist Lev Basky which depict the glorious freedom of woman as opposed to the oppressed and incarcerated existences of women in the harem… find out more about Zenana here.

One of the best and most beautiful hotels in Stone Town
Delicious food in the restaurant. This is a great way to experience Stone Town. The view from their rooftop is second to none and the sunset is stunning. The Sunset Dinner is highly recommended. One of the best and most beautiful hotels in Stone Town. A taste of Zanzibar. The perfect way to experience the sights and sounds of magical Spice Island.

Dining on the rooftop is like being in a movie
My friend told me that dining on the rooftop is like being in a movie. So I did. And it is! Reserve in advance – the rooftop is not big. The food is excellent once you climb the steep 99 steps. Feel free to get distracted by the beautiful interior. The live entertainment completes the motion picture experience. I didn’t stay in the hotel but I am sure I would feel like a movie star if I did.

This hotel totally captures the spirit of Stone Town
Quirkily charming this former palace has retained it’s character. This hotel totally captures the spirit of Stone Town–it’s history and its culture. Our room at the top (North) had great view of the rooftops, an outdoor (but private!) shower, and most amazing of all–and air-conditioned (as well as mosquito-netted) bed!

Lovely sunset ocean view
We stayed in the Blue room, which was beautiful and had a large tub and sitting area. Our friends stayed in the North room, which had a lovely sunset ocean view on a private terrace and open-air tub. You can have breakfast in your room for no extra charge.

This Stone Town Hotel was beautiful
The hotel was beautiful and the staff are beyond attentive and friendly. They truly think of everything from environmentally conscious soaps, to separate beach towels. The rooms are very clean and the historical architecture and furniture truly complement the mystery of Stone Town.  When we checked out, they gave us a room to use for shower and lounging for the full day at no extra charge. We were so impressed with their hospitality.

Food was delicious, views and atmosphere amazing!
Would highly recommend the Emerson. As for the restaurant, we had dinner on the rooftop with live music. Food was delicious, views and atmosphere amazing and service, again, personal and excellent. It felt like a history lesson with your meal, which we enjoyed to learn about customs and culture.
