Join us for a long and lazy weekend of literary and jazz delights. Enjoy close encounters with some of the world’s most talented writers and musicians. Put your feet up, kick back, and enjoy island-life.
If you can muster up the energy, get lost in our World Heritage site’s – Stone Town – maze-like streets, sail a dhow out to the surrounding islands, dive into the Indian Ocean, and enjoy wiggling your toes in the sand.
