Sol Melia to Open New Hotel in Zanzibar

May 19, 2011 By: Jena Tesse Fox

Sol Meliá, in line with its plan to grow in new markets, will open a new hotel on the island of Zanzibar, its first property in Tanzania. The Meliá Zanzibar is expected to be a five-star holiday resort.

Previously operated by the Kempinski chain (Zamani Kempinski), the hotel will reopen next August under the Spanish company’s Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand, joining the portfolio through a management contract.

The hotel is located in the northeast of Zanzibar, also known as the "Spice Island," a major African tourist destination known for being a unique cultural crossroads of Oriental, European and African influence, as well as for its beaches and coral reefs.

Meliá Zanzibar has 100 rooms and seven villas, the latter with their own private pool, solarium, living room, kitchen and butler service. The hotel also has a spa, beauty and fitness center, outdoor sports facilities - such as tennis courts and swimming pools - as well as different venues for meetings and events and dining options in two restaurants, three bars and a Beach Club.
