Room types at Chole Mjini

Groundhouse Sita

Sita, the ground house with multi-levels to create separate spaces: A throne-like built-in king-size bed is on the highest level, three Zanzibari beds on the next level (a few steps down), lounge chairs on the porch, a few steps lower. Shower en-suite.

Treehouse Mbili

Mbili has two double beds on two spacious and separate floors, all under one roof. The views (especially from upstairs) are spectacular. Mbili’s baobab is the granddaddy of them all and has its own spirit and personality.

Treehouse Moja

Built high up in the canopy of a huge and ancient baobab (that apparently thinks it’s a mangrove, growing as it does with its roots in the sea), tree house number one is popular because of the views of the sea out to Kinasi Pass.

Treehouse Nne

A tree house with the upstairs 'tea house' design: the 'tea house', a 19th-century Stone Town innovation, is essentially an elevated room that is open to the breezes, allowing for 360-degree views; the sunsets are spectacular from here.

Treehouse Saba

Saba is one of the biggest, easily sleeping two adults and two children. The tea house has fabulous sunset views and delicious breezes, and it has a large sun deck over the beach.

Treehouse Tano

Tano is a ‘tea house’ treehouses, set in the midst of the fig-entwined ruins of what was once a large house built during the 19th-century heyday of Chole. The King bed is mid level with the single up in the tee house with sweeping views delicious breezes

Treehouse Tatu

Built on two separate levels, almost like two separate houses joined by a staircase, the main house is on rocks under a Tamarind tree, close to the ground. The stairs go down from there into the second house that is over the beach among the mangroves
