Beyt Al Chai
Set in Zanzibar's historic Stone Town, this traditional house was once a tea house. Built on three floors and only a few paces from the sea, the house is cool and breezy.
Beyt Al Chai Highlights
Perfectly located on the famous Kelele Square, Beyt Al Chai allows guests to experience the ambience of the famous Stone Town in quite a tranquil setting overlooking a beautiful grassy square filled with Hibiscus and Neem trees.
