Zanzibar Maru Maru Hotel

Well, yes. Yet another high end stonetown experience.

I was at Maru Maru Hotel Zanzibar with a friend during low season (favourable rate) and taking into consideration that the hotel is newly opened it was a great stay.

I guess when the season picks up, the rates will pick up as well, and then they have hard competition from all the other high end swahilistyle establishments.

The location is very good, close to the House of Wonders, Forodhani park and the Old Fort.

It has been done to look very fancy, but the design and details are indeed "expensive" but it lacks in atmosphere unfortunately. 

The rooms are very modern, and here as well, not much attention to details, however clean and good materials/equipment.

One big miss in the whole design is the echo-chamber in the centre of the hotel, an open garden in 4 levels which has not been properly designed and all sounds from kitchen and laundry and staffs during evening and early morning is keeping you awake.

Either to properly make new sound proof doors to the rooms, move the kitchen or make istallments in this space taking up the sound waves.

The last thing I wish to say is the best thing.

The roof top restaurant. A more perfect place for a sun-downer, some snacks and drinks before dinner must be extremly hard to find.

The service is very good, so are the snacks, and again prices are okey.

You are gently been transfered to restaurant where you are being served your dinner, just a few meters away, and the food, mostly indian dishes are very good.

So besides the acustic flop and the and not really reaching the level of interior planning it promises after the first glimps, the place and our stay was very good, and I do recommend this for guests who sleeps tight and like a nice and clean stone town experience.
