For those who want to experience the charm of a classic Zanzibar setting with a touch of ancient Arabian mystique, the place is Beyt Al Salaam. This is an exquisite 10-room boutique hotel within a traditional Zanzibar house, built on 3 floors on what was once a tea house. Sitting only a few paces from the sea, the house is cool and breezy.
On a typical day, guests relax in our beautifully appointed lounge and rooms overlooking a square filled with hibiscus and ancient tamarind trees simultaneously feeling the pull of the mysterious Indian Ocean that lies just beyond the trees and soaking up the ambiance of this World Heritage Site only steps a way from the shops, restaurants and attractions of contemporary Zanzibar.
Located in the famous Kelele Square at the heart of Zanzibar’s renowned Stone Town. The Zanzibar Stone Town was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 2000. The location has an interesting history. A wealthy Arab merchant originally built this fabulous old building.
Dining at the Beyt Al Salaam resort is to experience Zanzibar. The restaurant, simply called Beyt Al Chai Restaurant, is unobtrusively located on the ground floor, away from the rooms. It opened in May 2007 and it is considered the finest dining establishment within Zanzibar’s Stone Town.
