    Dear Yusuf, We are in the middle of stone town so not exactly a beach hotel. However we are near the shoreline and right opposite the ferry terminal.

    Dear Amber, Due to space constraints in Stone Town, Most town hotels do not have a gym. However there is a gym a little out of town that you can use while in town. Kind Regards, Edna
