The Dhow Palace, with its Arabian archways, authentic antiques and ornaments, was originally an Omani mansion dating back to the 1870s. It is without a doubt one of the best hotels in Stone Town. The rooms are large, luxuriously appointed and the service is friendly. A magnificent hand-carved door with brass knobs welcomes you into the unassuming reception area. A courtyard with a water fountain, makuti-thatch chairs and palm fronds offers a cool haven in the heat of the day. The ambience inside the Dhow Palace is calm and relaxed which is a welcome relief from the buzz of the Stone Town streets. They have recently built a beautiful swimming pool in the main court yard, so guests have a perfect setting to enjoy a cocktail and relax away from the crowds.
