About Jafferji House and Spa
Located deep in the heart of Zanzibar’s historical Stone Town, the newly opened Jafferji House is an elegant boutique hotel. Recapturing the romance of travel, it beautifully combines modern luxury with the mesmerizing heritage that has shaped Zanzibar’s history.
Taking its name from its owner who once used the building as his family home, Jafferji House and Spa has been lovingly restored and styled to reflect its original splendour. Today, Javed Jafferji, a famous East African photographer and publisher proudly displays his personal photo collection around the hotel, and has carefully chosen select pieces from his treasured personal antique collection to fill the hotel’s rooms. Personal attention to detail is apparent throughout the hotel, and it is Jafferji’s hope that you’ll experience the ‘true’ Zanzibar as he knows it, and fall in love with the romance and history that surrounds Stone Town.
Each of the hotel’s ten unique suites is dedicated to, and inspired by, famous people who have left their mark on Zanzibar’s colourful past. The superior suites boast special outdoor baths offering spectacular views over the rooftops of Stone Town.
After a full day of exploring the narrow streets of Stone Town, unwind with a delicious spice infused coffee or a refreshing homemade juice at the hotel’s intimate Mistress of Spice Café. Or, savour the charm of a traditional Zanzibar afternoon in the hotel’s central courtyard while indulging in some local Sheesha. In the evening, enjoy an intimate dinner with a delectable selection of local and international cuisine; all made from the finest ingredients the island has to offer.
For those looking for a little special pampering, the hotel’s rooftop spa offers many traditional treatments using all natural and authentic Zanzibari ingredients.
