The hotel

There can be few more alluring locations other than the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town, and as the Park Hyatt Zanzibar is located right on the beach this is definitely the place to be for all lovers of sun, sea and spice. With more than a suggestive hint of nutmeg, cloves and black pepper on the breeze you'll discover a boutique selection of luxury guest rooms all with private balconies from where to soak up those all-important Indian Ocean views. As if the sublime ocean setting wasn't enough to wash your cares away, the Park Hyatt also boasts an infinity pool overlooking the beach as well as the sumptuous spa. The Park Hyatt Zanzibar is indeed what life on the Spice Island is all about and if you can take your time to sit and stare or investigate and explore the rich heritage of Stone Town you'll no doubt be treated to an Indian Ocean experience that really does take some beating.

We recently stayed for 3 nights as part of a 2 week holiday in Zanzibar. The hotel has probably the best location in Stone Town, on the beach and close to the souks, bars and restaurants. The decor combines the best of Arab and African design, particularly with Omani influences. The rooms are spacious and well laid out with a canopied bed,and a large well designed bathroom with very good amenities. The outdoor bar is well situated for a sundowner overlooking the ocean, and the beach is a popular place for evening activities. As the hotel is raised above the beach this does not impinge on the privacy of guest but adds to the atmosphere. There is also a very good infinity pool overlooking the beach. Although we only eat breakfast in the hotel the restaurant has a good reputation. Overall this hotel is an ideal base to explore Stone Town which is being renovated and restored in many areas and is a fascinating place to wander around and shop. Read less

The Park Hyatt Zanzibar is a fabulous hotel; everywhere you look, the hotel is simply beautiful, full of charm with a decoration on point. We stayed 2 nights with my family during the New Year; we had two double rooms and one suite. The rooms are spacious, elegant and very comfortable. Its 5-stars luxury without a doubt. The swimming pool area is very nice although there are not enough mattresses for all guests - so make sure you come early ;-) The only problem of this hotel is the service. The service is very bad, very far from a 5-stars hotel standards. The staff is not trained properly, they don't know their wine list or even what they have in stock. At breakfast, you order things and your order never arrives unless you chase the waiter for it... It's a shame because the hotel is fantastic! Read less

Stonetown Hyatt a prime example of a fully functioning Luxury American Hotel with everything one could want with no surprises. Big spotlessly clean rooms excellent bed and bedding, with full toiletries and big fluffy thirsty towels that hug and say I love you. (Oops that’s me talking to the towel) One of the best full sumptuous top notch Quality breakfast buffets ever. The hotel is well placed, securely a stones pace to the center hubbub with the bar and restaurant facing the unsurpassed beach with a delightful step right into perfect temperature infinity pool. The staff is friendly and exceedingly well trained. This management could give lessons to the industry. Worth every hundred If only we could afford to stay longer. Read less
