Why Emerson Spice Hotel?

An ancient Merchant’s House has been lovingly restored over the years & is now one of Stone Town’s most renowned hotels: The Emerson Spice.

Experience With an ideal setting in colourful Stone Town, it is here where guests will experience the real Zanzibar in contrast to glossy travel brochures.

Stone Town is the oldest part of Zanzibar City. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, it is known for its rich cultural heritage of Arab, Persian, Indian, and European elements.

Emerson Spice boasts 2 restaurants.

The rooftop Tea House is one of Stone Town’s most renowned restaurants, offering a stylish ambience amidst the sound of calls to prayer from the town’s many mosques. The Tea House boasts gorgeous sea & city views.

The Secret Garden Restaurant offers delicious local cuisine & is located within the distinctive ruins of the adjacent garden.

Stay Furnished with antique Zanzibar furniture, each of the 10 rooms is individually decorated & overlooks the hotel’s central courtyard.

Designed with romance in mind, the en-suite bathrooms are partially open to the bedrooms.

Activities Stonetown has a variety of fun-filled activities on the to-do list.

Guests can enjoy exotic spice tours, explore the streets of Stone Town with a local guide, see giant tortoises on Prison Island, sample the street food at a local market or visit Freddy Mercury’s house.

They can also try their hand at coffee roasting, embark on a traditional dhow cruise, visit Jozani Forest or enjoy a rooftop dinner at Emerson on Hurumzi while watching the sun go down.

Photographers & Instagrammers love taking pictures of the narrow streets of Stone Town, with its iconic Zanzibar doors.
