Welcome to Shaba Boutique Hotel

A bed and breakfast hotel in a beautiful and characteristic building in the heart of the old centre of Stone Town

You will find Shaba Boutique Hotel in Stone Town, the capital city of Zanzibar.  The history of this beautiful island goes back hundreds of years. Here on Zanzibar, African and Middle Eastern cultures met making Stone Town an important trading centre from Oman.

At that time one of the main trade products was copper, which in Kiswahili (the local language of Tanzania and Zanzibar) is translated as “shaba”. The hotel you are looking at and where hopefully you plan to stay soon is originally an old trade building owned for many years by wealthy merchants.

Nowadays the building invites you to come and spend some fabulous days and nights.
