Hyatt Hotels has opened Park Hyatt Zanzibar, marking the first ever Hyatt hotel on the idyllic East African island and the 36th Park Hyatt hotel worldwide.
Park Hyatt Zanzibar reflects the intimate and understated elegance of the Park Hyatt brand while embracing the rich culture, heritage and historical significance of Zanzibar. It is situated on the beachfront in Stone Town, the historical centre of the city and a designated UNESCO Heritage site.
As the cultural heart of Zanzibar, little has changed in Stone Town over the last 200 years. The town’s unique blend of Arabic and African cultural influences originate from the 19th century when Zanzibar Island served as a centre for the trade of spices.
Park Hyatt Zanzibar is housed in two buildings, one of them Mambo Msiige, a UNESCO heritage building steeped in history, grace and mystique with roots dating back to the 17th century.
Mambo Msiige is a typical Zanzibari mansion and an architectural gem, featuring intricate carvings and centred on a peaceful courtyard. The new and purposefully built Zamani Residence of the hotel connects to Mambo Msiige, blending old history and contemporary charm, while embracing Swahili culture with a blend of Arab, Persian, Indian and European influences.
The hotel’s 67 guest rooms (including 11 suites) provide the ultimate haven within Stone Town’s labyrinth of winding alleys, bustling markets, mosques and famed Zanzibari doors, featuring magnificent ornate wooden carvings.
A perfect blend of contemporary style, modern technology, timeless regional accents and sheer luxury, all guestrooms reflect the Park Hyatt brand’s intimate elegance, providing an ideal place to stay for discerning business and leisure travellers.
