About Kholle House

After three years of meticulous renovation, Kholle House has opened its doors; built in 1860 by Princess Kholle, the daughter of the first Sultan of Zanzibar, Kholle House provides a glimpse into the life of a Zanzibarian Princess. Nestled in the heart of Stone Town, Kholle House stands as a quiet oasis offering you a private sanctuary from the bustling city life. Our ten room luxury boutique hotel is designed in an elegant fusion of Swahili and French-Creole. Refresh yourself in our swimming pool or enjoy the breathtaking 360 degree views of Old Stone Town and the Indian Ocean from our roof top tea house.

Communal areas include a salon, lobby with marble fountain, breakfast room, garden conservatory, pool, terrace, exotic archways and a rooftop tea house with panoramic views over the city, the port, and the islands off of Stone Town.

You will feel like you stepped into an Arabian dream when you enter your room at Kholle House. Each room is unique and envelopes you with the colours of vibrant Zanzibarian spices and a sense of olden times. Rooms are rich with character and quality with high timber-beamed ceilings, western-style mattresses, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and Wi-Fi.
