Hotel recommendations aren’t usually our thing (typically because we have a low lodging budget), but after we were rebooked at the Forodhani Park Hotel (our original hotel ran out room) we couldn’t have a Stone Town guide without including it! What’s not to love about this place? You can walk there from the Ferry Terminal (which heads up, is a bit chaotic), it’s right next door to the Forodhani Gardens, and the rooms make you feel like you are an Arabian Princess (or Prince). And did we mention the rooftop pool? With 19 beautiful rooms to pick from (with breakfast included), it’s the perfect retreat for your stay in Stone Town.
