Hotel Description

If variety is the spice of life, then it can only be a good thing that Park Hyatt is branching out beyond skyscraper-topping business hotels and trying its hand at seaside resorts — and this one, in urban Stone Town, has to count as extremely spicy indeed. Built partially from a 17th-century mansion, albeit a very heavily renovated one, the Park Hyatt Zanzibar could hardly depart further from the Lost in Translation template. But given Park Hyatt’s expertise, you have to trust that they’ll hit the mark.

56 rooms and 11 suites come decorated in a style that pays homage to just about every one of Zanzibar’s cultural threads, and they also come with everything a modern luxury hotel room requires: free wi-fi, HDTVs, iPhone docking systems, and in-room coffee machines. Rain showers and separate bathtubs mean the bathrooms are properly indulgent, and the bedrooms start out large and just keep getting larger. Views of Stone Town or the hotel courtyard are nothing to sneeze at, but if you’ve come this far, you’ll want to be able to see the Indian Ocean — though, in a pinch, the spectacular oceanside infinity pool will certainly do.

The Stone Town location means it’s nothing if not convenient, though the much-vaunted Park Hyatt privacy means it feels anything but urban. The various lounges, verandas and terraces serve upscale fare in an environment that recalls a posh seaside getaway, and the Anantara spa may as well be in another dimension. It’s a departure, to be sure, but handled with characteristic Park Hyatt aplomb, and it’ll amply reward anyone who’s willing to undertake the journey.

How to get there: Park Hyatt Zanzibar is located approximately 15 minutes by car from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport via Nyerere Road. Multiple daily flights (approximately 20 minutes) are available from Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam. Alternatively, multiple ferries are available daily between Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar, averaging 2 hours each way and up to USD $50 per person.
