Mbweni Ruins


Call 0121 472 1541 to chat about accommodation


Mbweni Ruins is a small hotel just outside of Stone Town. It is perfect for those who want to be close to the museums, shops and restaurants of Stone Town, whilst remaining on the beach. It is only 15 minutes by car to the centre of Zanzibar's capital, and Mbweni provide a free shuttle service three times daily.

Mbweni Ruins sits in lush tropical gardens that slope gently down towards the sea. It has lovely communal areas, all with wonderful views across the sea and an unobstructed view of the sunset. The bar/lounge and dining area is a large open-sided thatch building, with a separate wooden deck that extends out over a high coral cliff, above the beach. There is also a lovely pool down by the beach which has lots of loungers for lazing.

There are a large number of activities to choose from, from kayaking through the mangrove channels that surround the area, walking in the gardens, dhow excursions, diving, fishing and use of the Bustani Spa.

Stone Town - the island's capital - contains a rich history of Arab influences, the slave trade, and so on, well repaying the time spent on exploration here.

It is difficult to imagine a better location for a stunning beach holiday than Zanzibar.
