Park Hyatt Zanzibar

It’s been years in the making, and now Park Hyatt has debuted this month on the sunny isle of Zanzibar off Tanzania’s coast. Situated on the beach in Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Park Hyatt Zanzibar occupies two buildings: the purpose-built Zamani residence and Mambo Msiige, a typical Zanzibari mansion that dates back to the 17th century.

There are 67 guestrooms, including 11 suites equipped with balconies overlooking the Indian Ocean. Designed in a contemporary style with local touches, the rooms come with free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, illy coffee machines, and separate rainshowers and soaking tubs in the bathrooms.
