Hyatt Park Zanzibar

Hyatt Park Zanzibar is the one of the best accommodation hotel found in Zanzibar near the stone town, it is more loved by visitors who are visiting Zanzibar and actually it is one of the best place to stay in your Tanzania-Zanzibar safari holiday. Park Hyatt Zanzibar is located on the seashore in the heart of Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Among Stone Town’s labyrinth of winding streets, bustling marketplaces, mosques, and famous Zanzibar doors with exquisite, elaborate wooden carvings, the hotel provides the ideal sanctuary. Forodhani Gardens, the Old Fort, the Old Dispensary, the Peace Memorial Museum, the Palace Museum, and the House of Wonders are all within walking distance of each other from the hotel.


You’re just steps away from major tourist attractions like the Forodhani Gardens, the House of Wonders, the Arabian Fort, and the harbour, yet secreted away from the bustle and, yes, inevitable hustle of the old centre, gazing across the sands of Shangani Beach towards the sunset, on the outskirts of World Heritage-listed Stone Town. This is Africa’s only Park Hyatt, and many consider it to be one of Zanzibar’s top hotels.

Style and character

The hotel’s centerpiece is a mid-nineteenth-century home with ornately carved doors and calm courtyards, constructed by a wealthy Omani trader and painstakingly renovated. Though not quite as atmospheric as the old Zamani Residence wing, the new Zamani Residence wing features attractive terraces overlooking the beach and Indian Ocean. The only mildly off-putting note is the ubiquitous lounge-jazz musk.

Services and Amenities

From the foyer to the bar, from the restaurant to the room, the famed Zanzibar friendliness is reflected in the dazzling service. Most members of staff will remember your name and will be ready to converse with you if you so desire (but restrained if not).  The hotel features an infinity pool with a view of the ocean. Despite its size, the hotel only has 67 guest rooms, including 11 suites. With such a small number of accommodations, you can expect a really private and tranquil experience. Even though the hotel is nearly full during high season, it never seemed crowded, and the entire environment is easygoing and welcoming.

Breakfast, lunch, and supper are offered at The Dining Room, which is located within the hotel. Next door is The Lounge, a cocktail bar where you may have a delicious drink while smoking a cigar. An infinity pool with views of the Indian Ocean is also available at the hotel. This is where you can choose to spend the majority of your afternoons, soaking in the sun. Park Hyatt’s don’t usually have club lounges, so if you’re hoping for an evening cocktail reception like you’d get at a Grand Hyatt, you’ll be disappointed. Breakfast is served buffet style, which has been phased out of many hotels due to the epidemic. While most luxury hotels include an a-la-carte breakfast, the breakfast at this property is inadequate. Overall, the service is excellent and met all of the Park Hyatt’s standards.


The Park Hyatt Zanzibar has 67 lavishly designed bedrooms, including 11 suites that merge understated elegance, contemporary style, current technology, and timeless regional nuances.

The standard and ocean-view Park King rooms are both large, with balconies in the majority of the latter. The contemporary décor of the 56 guestrooms and seven standard suites is infused with Arabesque and Indian elements in lampshades, classic brass-studded chests, and floral carvings, which add a touch of corporate five-star middle-of-the-roundness to the 56 guestrooms and seven standard suites. Bathrooms are generously large, with standalone tubs, dual basins, and monsoon showers. A large television, an Illy coffee maker, an iPhone dock, citrusy Laura Tonatto cosmetics, and Voss water are among the amenities.

Food and beverages

Unlike the cuisine, which is outstanding, from morning pastries to flapping-fresh grilled fish served in the Pool Lounge overlooking the beachside infinity pool, the huge Dining Room restaurant could use a little more personality. The menu has subtle Arabian, Portuguese, and Swahili flavors, but for a special treat, choose chef Ali Cherati’s Persian feast. Sundowners on the patio are necessary at the Living Room lounge bar, which serves lighter appetizers, cocktails, and a superb gin and tonic.


There is infinity pool, which faces the ocean and overlooks the local beach, is the perfect place to swim in the morning, relax in the sun, or re-energize after a day of touring Stone Town. The 18-meter-long pool is surrounded by luxurious lounge chairs and offers spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and dhow harbors. Its design provides solitude while still allowing guests to experience the cultural life of Stone Town’s beach, which is right in front of the pool.


At the Park Hyatt Zanzibar, there is two luxury boutiques. Lithos Africa features an exceptional assortment of Tanzanian jewels, while the gift shop offers a wide range of gorgeous presents and souvenirs.
