After several nooks and crannies one emerges on the very top level of the hotel. Tucked away and half hidden around a corner of a frangipani tree is a small wooden door that opens up onto a suite of several rooms with a private courtyard submerging one into a Garden of Eden. Palm trees, ferns, desert Roses, a pomegranate, cactus, bougainvillea and if you’re lucky the Queen of the night jasmine bush may be in bloom.
This barrage of foliage continues off of the main courtyard and around an enjoining section of this suite that is built back, and protruding over the main courtyard of the hotel two floors below. The entire suite is easily over 100sqm providing one with light, airiness and an opulence of space so necessary here on the equator.
Typical of all suites and apartments the walls are decorated with wonderful murals of stucco plaster. The suite has all antique original furniture mostly of Indian origin which is a major influence in this culture and differs slightly from other rooms and suites as some of the walls are decorated with artistic paintings from local artists.
The outer chamber serves where one my writes, lounge on several divans and plump oneself into a huge Jaruri Chaise lounge which quickly leads one to complete comfort and often sleep.
The inner chamber is the bedroom followed by an ensuite toilet and bathroom. Here also will one find a replica of the bed of the King of Kilwa with the rest of the room furnished with antique Swahili furnishings.
The bathroom and toilet walls have been plastered with a light amber Rusk pink Tadelakt adding to the sensuality of the beige amber color that dominates most walls in this suite.
