EMERSON SPICE HOUSE

An enchanting rooftop restaurant and hotel, once home to the last Swahili ruler of Zanzibar. During restoration, thousands of abalone and oyster shells were found in its courtyard, hinting that once a mother-of-pearl-jewellery shop operated here. A rich Indian merchant used to trade from the building, and legend has it that he would dry carpets of sopping rupee notes (from the ships) on the floors! Emerson Spice House is drenched in opulent Arabic/Indian appeal, and its cosy cushion-seated eatery oers unparalleled views across Stone Town’s skyline.
