Surprising what you find on the internet. I came across Mustaphas in Zanzibar on Twitter. I was having a lousy Friday at Chanters Lodge, which got no better as it went along, and in what HotelChatter might call a ‘cubicle moment’ I wanted to go to Zanzibar immediately! Here’s all about it:
“The rooms at Mustapha’s are one-of-a-kind. Designed organically by Mustapha, Culture and their friends, they vary from smaller bandas with access to quirky (and nearby) shared bathrooms to larger bungalows with their own bathrooms. From the African stylings of the Round Room, to the jungle charm of the Treetop Room, there is a room for everyone.
Treetop Room – nestling up high, this room built with wooden poles is airy and charming, as well as being a bargain.
Green Room – for those who prefer to stay closer to the ground, the green room is a comfortable and affordable option.
Yellow Room – this bigger room is good for those with children, or small groups travelling together on a budget.
Swiss Banda – a sizeable and characterful bungalow with space for four people, but also good for couples wanting a bit of space
Jacuzze – opposite the bar, this bungalow is comfortable and charming – good for couples but can sleep more if necessary.
Africa House – also known as “Honeymoon”, this bungalow is slightly tucked away from the rest, so good for romantics, or families with children.
Yes, we’ll have Africa House please!
Prices for the rooms at Mustapha’s are low compared to most hotels on the island and you get access to the same stunning beach and beautiful plant life as many expensive luxury hotels, but with a more laidback vibe.
Just take me there – not www.mustaphasplace.com but www.mustaphanairticket.com!
