Maru Maru Hotel: picture gallery


Maru Maru is a new hotel in the middle of Stone Town.
Walk along the marbled balconies to get to your room.
The rooms are bright and simple with large comfortable beds.
Each room comes with a flat screen TV...
...and an ensuite bathroom.
The bathrooms either have large walk in showers...
...or a hammam bath.
Maru Maru is one of the only hotels in Stone Town that has a lift...
...which will take you up to the roof top terrace.
There is a fully stocked bar which offers a range of cocktails.
With a drink in hand it is the perfect place to enjoy panoramic views of the whole town.
There is also a terrace restaurant...
...which serves a fusion of South and North Indian food.
Maru Maru is currently the only hotel in Stone Town with a rooftop pool...
... and the views from up here are fantastic.
You can look right down the middle of the new wing to the fountain courtyard.
The shade of the courtyard is a great place to have a cool drink in the middle of the day.
Nearby to the courtyard is the fountain restaurant...
...where a buffet breakfast is served daily.
