Kholle House was a unique surprise nestled in the alleyways of Stonetown whilst maintaining ocean views. This cute boutique hotel epitomizes Arabian charm with Moroccan and Mmani elements embedded in each room with beautiful detail. The beautiful double beds surrounded by old shutters and private balconies are truly a wonder to stay in. And the glorious big bath does add that extra something. After touring Stonetown all day its a perfect secret to escape to the refreshing, tiled pool while sipping G&T's in the intimate courtyard. Truly a joy to stay in.
