Jafferji House

The beautiful island of Zanzibar comes steeped in history, romance and mystery. Nestled off the East coast of Tanzania, it is a cultural melting point, drawing influence from its colourful past. Arabic, Portuguese, African and British influences have all found their way on to the island which was a main port of call on the ancient Indian Ocean trading routes.

A building over 100 years old, Jafferji house has passed generations of families, to finally open its doors as a guesthouse and spa. Ideally located in the heart of Stone town, close to all the attractions the historical town has to offer, Jafferji House & Spa is a small, luxurious boutique hotel. The design of the hotel captures the heritage of an era gone by and combines this with modern day necessities, creating comfort and a personalized service with attention to every detail. The suites each have a story to tell and are wonderfully furnished with antiques and artifacts from around the world.

Nestled high above Zanzibar’s rooftops and with stunning views of the Indian Ocean, the hotel’s rooftop spa offers the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Stone Town. All the beauty treatments are done with the finest natural and local ingredients, to leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and completely refreshed.

A wonderful place, full of surprises and certainly one of a kind. Utterly fabulous.

Fantastic Hotel. Beautiful. We changed and booked at the last minute. What a great decision. Just wish we had longer. Well done!
