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.
Facilities include the Anantara spa with three large spa suites; a 24-hour fitness center; a number of dining concepts; and an oceanfront infinity pool with a Pool Lounge serving fresh fruit juices, tropical cocktails, and locally caught seafood. The concierge can arrange a host of activities to immerse yourself in authentic, local culture.
In celebration of the hotel’s debut, a special opening offer gives 5,000 bonus points to Hyatt Gold Passport members for stays that include 2 nights or more between April 1, 2015 and June 30, 2015.
There are currently 34 Park Hyatt hotels around the world- from Beaver Creek to Buenos Aires to Beijing.
