Emerson & Green Hotel

The ten guestrooms are beautiful and romantic, each representing Zanzibari traditions in a distinct way. All rooms except for the Kipembe room are equipped with large stone bathtubs providing unusual bathing pleasure where a bubble bath and a bottle of wine are a frequent request. Ceiling fans keep our guests cool along with the constant breeze on the upper floors. Second and first floor rooms as well as the South room are equipped with air conditioning for added comfort. The sultan-sized rooms on the first and second floors have 20 foot ceilings, carved doors, original stucco décor and hand painted glass lamps and window panes. All guest rooms have large Zanzibari beds complete with netting. All rooms include a small buffet breakfast served in the Tower Top Restaurant from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Check in times are flexible and check out time is 11:00 a.m.

Located on the Northwest corner of the Peace of Love wing, this suite has a commanding view both from it’s balcony windows and from it’s own private tower top tea house.
The antique furnishings including a romantic brass bed under voluminous netting offer the real feel of Zanzibar in the grand style of the Victorian era when Zanzibar was a hub of trade for all East Africa.
Air conditioning and a ceiling fan provide the comfort needed for the hot Zanzibar days and a cool breeze while taking in the panorama from your own tower top will be the highlight of your stay in Zanzibar.
A large stone bath and bath facilities are tucked away in one corner near and under the substantial teakwood stairs to your tower top retreat.
From high upon the rooftops guests can take in breathtaking sunsets over the historical Stone Town.

All rooms receive fresh flowers, bottled water, and fresh jasmine flowers on the pillows at bedtime.

The Tower Top Restaurant, a common stop for newlyweds and marriage proposals alike, is undoubtedly one of the most romantic restaurants in the world. Featuring a panoramic view of Stone Town and a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean, it is the perfect to watch the sun set. Eighty feet above the Stone Town and sitting on Persian carpets, more than one guest has told us that dinner here feels like a ride on a magic carpet. The dining room is open on all sides and guests sit Arabian-style on pillows and carpets, their shoes having been left at the door, while their dinner is served in five or more courses and accompanied by the sites and sounds of exotic Zanzibar.

The Tower Top Restaurant lies high among the minarets, temple towers, and church spires. It is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary eating venues in the world. Located on the roof of the building, it makes guests feel as if they're on top of the world as they sip exotic drinks and watch the sun disappear into the Indian Ocean. The Muslim call to prayer accents the eastern setting of Arab-style pillows and small tables and the Hindu Temple chimes remind visitors that they are far away from the stress they left at home.
