Emerson Spice: picture gallery


Emerson Spice is one of the most stylish and memorable hotels in Stone Town.
This boutique hotel is located in the heart of Stone Town...
...and has been decorated with much colour and style.
The rooms are all individually decorated...
...in different colours.
The en-suite bathrooms...
...also come with the Zanzibari style and opulence.
Most rooms have balconies where breakfast is served...
...with views into the interior courtyard...
...and a spot to sit and relax in the sun.
The carved wooden furniture is of Zanzibari origin.
Downstairs is a small seating area...
...but most meals are taken in the fabulous rooftop restaurant.
Local chefs rustle up tasty dishes using local spices...
...while you can enjoy the view...
... when the sun goes down…
…or have dinner in the Secret Garden à la carte restaurant on the ground floor.
