Emerson on Hurumzi
Emerson on Hurumzi may be Zanzibar’s most exquisite hotel. The rooms are named after sultans, merchants, princesses and explorers, and the historical bric-a-brac dotting the walls give it an elegant, museum-y quality.

The hotel's rooftop bar and restaurant is one of the tallest structures in town; clambering up the wooden stairs, taking off your shoes at the top, and reclining (or flopping, depending on how you feel after a day of sightseeing) on the embroidered cushions is a rite of passage for some Zanzibar travelers.

Even if you're not sleeping like a sultan of yore at the hotel, you can still enjoy a drink and the view.
