Zanzibar is the perfect place to spend a seaside holiday on amazingly beautiful beaches, according to your taste – whether totally relaxed or sporty. For us, it is important that we offer our guests something more: When you stay with us, you have the possibility to experience everyday life on Zanzibar and get to know the local culture.
As a Tanzanian family, living in Switzerland and Tanzania, we are living in two quite different worlds. This experience helps to bridge the gap between the cultures more easily.
We love Tanzanian art, have close contact with local artists and support them. In the Art Hotel, there is art is everywhere, outside and inside. Creative artists have participated in the decoration of some of the guest rooms. Their pictures make the pulse of African painting tangible. On the terrace and in the garden, art objects create new relationships with nature and life in the village.
In every room, a native artist has transformed a particular theme into pictures. The furnished sitting area in front of each room is a veranda with an the exclusive view of the sea and life in the fishing village.
