The Swahili House first opened its doors in June 2009 and we have since stayed on a number of occasions. Aiming to be a high quality boutique hotel, it is the sister property to Fumba Beach Lodge and built to a similar standard.
Our view of Swahili House
The Swahili House is a lovely new boutique hotel which shows a lot of potential. When we were last there, it certainly needed to finish off some of the building work and settle in a bit. However what was finished was of great quality, the staff here were friendly and helpful and we have no doubt that this will be a great base from which to explore Stone Town. That said, guests should note that the stairs here are quite steep and so this may not be suitable for everyone.
