Built on 3 floors, this traditional house was at one time a tea house (where its name comes from). Perfectly located on the famous Kelele Square the Beyt Al Chai, The Zanzibar Stone Town Inn allows you to experience the ambiance of the famous Stone Town while uniquely allowing you to find the peace and tranquility of over looking a beautiful grassy square filled with hibiscus and tamarind treesto the Indian Ocean beyond

Across the street and around the corner from Zanzibars best town hotels, means that guests of Beyt Al Chai, The Zanzibar Stone Town Inn are in easy walking distance to all the attractions of Zanzibar town and in the evenings all the restaurants are very nearby.

Being an authentic old Zanzibar house, means that each of the just 6 fully en-suite bedrooms and suites are completely unique. Richly coloured organza and silk curtains billow in the breeze around genuine antique furniture dating back to the days of the Sultan. Add to this personalized and detailed service, fully air conditioned rooms, modern sanitary facilities and Beyt al Chai is the best choice for a luxury visit to the Stone Town.

The 6 bedrooms and suites are divided in three categories:
             –    2 Sultan Rooms:    +/- 40sqm each, with private bathrooms and a superb sea view to admire while relaxing during the day or with a drink at sunset;
–        3 Prince Rooms:    +/- 25sqm, with private bathroom and separate dressing room;

In order to maintain the character of this antique building, there are no noisy bars or restaurants, there is a wide variety of these close by in the Stone Town. However, there will be a beautiful and bright breakfast courtyard, one of the jewels of this house and drinks will be available in the living room which is the perfect place to relax on one of the Zanzibar beds or large sofas while reading a book or simply taking in the magical atmosphere and sounds of the town all the while gazing at the turquoise blue Indian Ocean views.
