I was travelling overland through Africa arriving in Stone Town after a month on the road through the desert. I was in search of a day spa so I could take a body scrub and refresh for the month ahead. I walked past the Zanzibar Palace Hotel a few times. On one occasion I thought why not just walk through the big timber doors to see what they have. And, what a find! I booked into their day spa for later that evening to be followed by dinner. The body scrub was to die for! I have never had a body scrub like that before. Not only did I feel clean and refreshed, I felt re-energised.
I relaxed by having a quiet drink in their bar before dinner. The service was excellent. The food was enjoyable. This hotel really is an oasis in the middle of Stone Town. If ever I was to go back I would want to stay here.
If you do stay at the Zanzibar Palace Hotel, make sure you use the day spa!
