The ‘Spice Island’ of Zanzibar has long held a fascination for travellers, with its rich history and blending of cultures from around the world. Along with its pristine beaches, Stone Town is a major attraction with its magical atmosphere of merchants and spices crowding centuries-old alleyways.

Dar House Zanzibar is ideal for a family or group of friends who want to get away from it all and spend quality time together in seclusion and privacy. Set in a grove of palm and casuarina trees on the idyllic Michamvi Pingwe beach on Zanzibar’s eastern shore, you are just steps away from talcum-soft sands and azure water. Four bedrooms and several entertainment areas look over a serpentine pool, garden and the ocean beyond, while a courtyard provides a private enclave within the house. A dedicated chef and staff make sure your every wish is fulfilled, from preparing surf-fresh seafood meals to arranging tours on and around the island.

Whether you wish to set off on adventurous diving trips, sail into deserted bays teeming with tropical fish, take long walks on the pristine sands or simply relax and entertain, Dar House Zanzibar is like a your own home on its own piece of paradise.

Elegance and simplicity combine to create an atmosphere redolent of Zanzibar’s past, present and future. A shaggy thatched roof envelopes the white building with its crenellated Arabic architectural style; dark furniture is juxtaposed with coralline cushions of whiter-than-white. The lofty ceiling allows the light into the central courtyard, spilling in tones of blue from the ocean. An upstairs dining and lounge area provides a cool and welcoming haven by day, and a cosy and intimate ambiance at night. The front terrace steps down into a tropical garden, limpid pool and gazebo, with the powdery sand of the beach just metres away.

Wi-Fi and a media room add a modern touch as you sink into Zanzibar’s charming embrace.

With a dedicated chef on hand, meals are taken as you like them, when you like them. With an array of organic vegetables from the garden, surf-fresh seafood and a mouth watering selection of the island’s tropical fruits as ingredients, each meal is bound to be as memorable as it is delicious and convivial. 


Four en suite bedrooms are gathered on the ground floor, two with ocean views, two with garden views. Large 4-poster beds elegantly draped with mosquito netting add a touch of island romance and the dark wood furnishings are offset by gorgeously crisp white linens and cushions. Standing fans keep the air cool and comfortable, and the bathrooms feature double basins and refreshing showers.
