At Tembo House Hotel a unique experience waits for the clients. Tembo House Hotel is overlooking the seafront of Zanzibar and is surrounded by historic buildings and magical views. It has a small intimate beach in front but swimming here is not recommended.
Tembo House Hotel is situated at the heart of Zanzibar Stone Town by the picturesque seafront. The magnificent main building has had various functions over the past centuries. Between 1834 and 1884 it served as the American Consulate in Zanzibar then passed on to become the trading offices of Cowasjee Dinshaw & Partners. Their headquarters was in Aden (what now is known as the Port of Suez). With trading posts notably in most of the British Protectorate areas, it became the largest trading Company in the India Ocean. To this day, the name of Cowasjee Dinwash & Partners is still visible at the main entrance of Tembo House Hotel.
