Food served at the resort matches the quality seen in the rooms and public areas and takes much inspiration from the Zanzibari way of cooking and preparing seafood though special culinary requirements are met by the chef and his kitchen team at a moment’s notice.
Located along the sandy Matemwe beach does the resort offer great views of Mnemba Island, one of the smaller islands making up the Zanzibar archipelago.
The resort’s 14 suites are spread over 3 villas with the decor authentic Swahili and Zanzibar styles of furniture, wall hangings and artefacts.

The resort’s many facilities are complemented by the ‘Cinnamon Spa‘ which offers a wide range of treatments, exclusively for inhouse guests.
Jafferji House, the original venture of Javed into the hospitality industry, is in contrast located within the Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and within walking distance to such attractions like the House of Wonders, Forodhani Gardens, the Palace Museum, the old fort and the former slave market.
Part of the building is now over 150 years old and was purchased by Javed’s grandfather in 1945. It has since then remained in the family and been extensively renovated and modernized before the hotel was launched in 2011 – after Javed had acquired sole ownership from other family members.
With just 10 suites is this property highly valued among discerning travelers who seek personal attention in luxurious surroundings – something engrained in the fabric of Jafferji properties.
The Jafferji Photogallery and a small jewelry shop are also located at the house’s ground floor, giving guests and insight into the past and the present while browsing for gifts.
