Beyt al Salaam: picture gallery


The Beyt al Salaam is a beautiful old tea house both small and intimate…
…but with plenty of character throughout.
The ground floor restaurant is stylish and atmospheric…
…and you can take your pick from the range of European or Swahili dishes.
The six individual rooms are the main attraction here…
Each room has its own unique name…
…and style…
…with high ceilings…
…traditional Zanzibari furniture…
…including the authentic beds…a lot higher than normal ones!
The vibrant colours of the silky fabrics add a real luxurious touch.
Each of the room has its own en-suite bathroom…
…in which the style…
…and attention to detail…
…are just as noticeable here…
…as anywhere else in the hotel.
You'll find it hard to leave the comfort of the lounge cushions…
…making it a perfect place to relax for a few hours with a book…
…have a drink from the honesty bar, and listen to some music.
But with the bars and restaurants of Stone Town so close by, you're spoilt for choice!
