Maru Maru is a gem in the heart of Stonetown. Bringing the heart and feel of Zanzibar but balanced with panache and polish. Just behind the old fort, you have easy access to all of Stonetown, and it is quite affordable. The rooftop lounge and restaurant is beyond compare, and you will not find a better view of the sunset. The food and cocktails are delicious (highly recommend the vodka sour and indian fare). The rooms are very comfortable with stunning attention to detail and an old world riad feel. The staff were accomodating, friendly, and lovely. You would be hard pressed to find a better stay in Stonetown!
