Our Hotel

Introducing Protea: Africa’s top hotel company joins the Marriott’s family of brands. The perfect choice for both beach and Stone Town holidays in Zanzibar, we are located amidst Mbweni Ruins dating back to 1870s and a beautiful botanical garden. The hotel is ten minutes away from Stone Town, airport, ferry terminal and the CBD of Zanzibar. Protea Hotel Mbweni Ruins is a cozy boutique hotel offering serene accommodations amidst a rare blend of history, greenery and ocean with a beautiful beach. Traditional Zanzibar hospitality at its best is offered at an affordable price. It’s a hotel that complements your travel style. The site where the hotel is built was once an old Arab House, which was then bought by UMCA missionaries in 1871 to build a school for girls. The hotel makes a perfect base for exploring Stone Town.
