luxury resorts zanzibar – zanzibar romantic hotel
Looking for the most beautiful hotels in Zanzibar ? You’ve come to the right place.
Zanzibar has an interesting history, quite distinct from mainland Tanzania to which it belongs politically. The island was ruled by the Sultanate of Oman from 1698, and was a centre of the slave trade until the mid 19th century when Britain put pressure on the local Omani rulers. The island eventually became a British Protectorate in 1890 before becoming part of independent Tanzania in 1964.
The island does a fine line in barefoot luxury resorts – very romantic – and I love the colonial and arab influences in the architecture and interiors.
