Mashariki Palace Hotel

Stone Town, Zanzibar: Exotic and mystical, evocative of the centuries of sultans, traders, adventurers and explorers who came to these magical isles of Zanzibar off the Swahili East African coast, leaving a cultural and architectural fusion which echoes its proud history of Persian, Arabian, Indian, Colonial and African influences.

Stone Town is now home to the new MASHARIKI PALACE HOTEL.

mashariki palace hotel zanzibar stone town

This is the Eastern Palace on the islands, once the seat of the Omani empire spanning a thousand miles, created by the first sultan of Zanzibar almost 200 years ago.

The domicile of the Sultan's religious councilor is now restored beyond its former magnificence.

The MASHARIKI PALACE HOTEL is a privileged residence for travelers choosing refined hospitality in a historical setting.

Wandering through the ancient corridors, your thoughts will drift to the past splendor of a lost era, and the secret memories, like a faint waft of incense, that this old palace jealously preserves.

Relaxing on a balcony overlooking the old town, with mosques, churches and temples below you, you can cast your eyes past the tropical seafront gardens to the sparkling blue Indian Ocean and wonder about the generations of people who sailed here on gentle monsoon breezes.
