About Us

Design hotel in the heart of Stone Town?

Boutique Hotel only 5 min from legendary every-night Forodhani Food Festival and 10 min walk from the ferry? 

The one with charismatic JAWS Bar on the rooftop and bright sunny Ocean Restaurant?
Some might use the above to describe us. And yet it solely refers to our aesthetical appearance.

And as we all know: True beauty lies within.

What we really are, is a place of deceleration in the centre of Stone Town. A leisure hotel in the city.

A comfy home in an unknown world. 

The Spice Palace makes its debut in Stone Town with this meticulously restored and discreetly modernised heritage building. The ultimate in sophistication and glamour, The Space Palace is now open and welcoming guests. Fresh, iconic, inspiring, original and utterly magnificent. At Spice Palace a unique and delightful experience awaits. We’re here to look after you. To set you up for a great day, every day.


This is Africa. This is Zanzibar Island. This is Stone Town, UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is old narrow streets where African, Arab, Persian, Indian and European cultures mixed, the vivid shades of every colour imaginable; the textures; the spices; the vibrant energy of the seafront and markets; This is where old legends are born and ferry tails and romantic stories have played out since 19th century. Continue the legacy. Write your story.
