Kisiwa House

A luxurious hotel in Stone Town, Kisiwa House is noted for its blend of boutique sophistication and gracious Swahili hospitality. In the hustle and bustle of the legendary historical Stone Town, Kisiwa House is superbly located on a quiet street in the heart of Stone Town, a UNESCO world heritage site within easy walking distance to significant landmarks, museums, antique shops and restaurants.

Our hotel provides every modern convenience to our guests. Promising an unforgettable experience of professional service, comfort and unmatched elegance within a decidedly romantic and enchanting Swahili feel through out our 11 rooms and suites.

“Taarab rose to prominence in 1928 with the rise of the genre’s first star, Siti binti Saad from Zanzibar. The word Taarab, a loanword from Arabic, means “having joy with music” 

When walking onto the roof, through the doors of Darini, Kisiwa House’s restaurant, takes you back to a time of decadence and self indulgent luxury. Amber glass lighting and brass antique fixtures glow around you to put you at ease. Darini is a distinctive restaurant that offers both traditional and continental specialities inspired by the island’s rich spices and flavours. Our Chef will introduce your palate to an amazing fusion of fresh food while admiring the breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and sunset over the rooftops of Stone Town.

The Courtyard Lounge is a hidden retreat for you to unwind. The symphony of flowing water and enchanting traditional Taraab music take your mind to a place of serenity and calm. We invite you to linger over a freshly brewed coffee pot or take in the scent of spiced tea while indulging in the delights of a freshly baked pastry.



From behind the screened windows and brass studded doors, comes the sweet and mesmerizing scent of “Udi”. A locally made product concocted from a wide variety of ingredients varying from sugar, perfumes, flowers, spices and rose water is placed into a coconut shell and then onto an incense burner

Indulge in the immaculate opulence and comfort Kisiwa House has to offer. Set in a crisp fresh and sumptuous Swahili style. Our luxurious and spacious rooms and suites are like gems amidst a tranquil setting. The plush interiors with sleek clean lines speak of sophistication, while the lustrous colours and textiles whisper relaxation and romance.
