Mtoni Marine Center is positioned a few kilometres outside Stone Town at Bububu, close to the ruins of Mtoni Palace, the first palace of Sultan Seyyid Said. The hotel has one of the most excellent restaurants in Zanzibar where guests can dine in true blend style. The food is served at tables on the beach, so you can feast on wonderful cuisine while sitting barefoot on the beach under the stars. A fantastic new extra to the restaurants is the Sushi bar, offering fresh sushi daily.
Other than the Sushi bar, the resort has also opened a tropical therapy centre, where they offer tropical aroma therapy. The welcoming staff at the resort can also organize day tours for you.

Mtoni Marine offers a variety of 3 different rooms and bungalows all with mosquito nets, air-conditioners, ceiling fans, electronic safes & en-suite bathrooms.
The Bungalows are all wooden in contraction and basic but good value for money. All bungalows have a lounge area and veranda enjoying views of the magical gardens.
The Club Rooms are cozy and authentically furnished with beautiful Zanzibar and Oman pieces, these traditionally palm thatched rooms are set in the middle of lush tropical gardens, shadowed by an old mango tree. Embrace the tranquility of the island as you relax on your private veranda.
The Palm Court Rooms are by far the most elegant and more spacious. Built in Arabian style and furnished with king size Zanzibar Beds and a sleeping couch. The rooms are tiled, light and breezy and are the perfect honeymoon rooms for relaxing in your private veranda watching the Indian Ocean with its mangroves and the sun set beyond the view of the neighbouring islands. The bathrooms are spacious and beautifully tiled.
One of the newest features at Mtoni Marine has to be the new Aromatherapy Massage centre where you will forget all about civilization and emerge refreshed into the real world of this Indian Ocean paradise. Mwaju and Damtu are trained by a famous aroma therapist in Dar es Salaam and are practicing with oils such as Lemongrass, Jasmine, Clove and Ylang Ylang in a dreamy environment overlooking the ocean, something to really make you feel special and relaxed on your magical trip.
