Main description of Maru Maru Hotel

Set in the heart of the UNESCO world heritage site of StoneTown, Maru Maru is just a few steps from the city’s historical wonders, colourful markets and labyrinth of shops. Once a town house famous for its marble floors and tiles, it has now been lovingly restored to offer 44 bright rooms blending classic Zanzibar style with iconic design and modern luxuries. Its roof terrace offers one of the best views in the city with a 360° panorama and is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail as the sun melts into the Indian Ocean. The relaxed ambiance at Maru Maru continues long into the night as people come to enjoy the authentic north and south Indian fusion cuisine, view art in Maru Maru’s gallery and enjoy the captivating sound of Tahareb music as it floats into the night.
