How Does a Hotel Qualify for 7 Star?

As stated earlier, a seven-star has its hallmark on luxury and opulence. However, there are a few other things that make up these status. One of the main criteria in having a hotel get such status is that it must be in a prime location mostly cities. The structure must be uniquely iconic which is one of the most stunning features you will see in the seven star hotel in Zanzibar. Also, expect it to have more suites than rooms.

Pemba Island isn’t a city per se but it is one of the top tourist spots in Zanzibar. The island holds a treasure trove of beauty and experiences waiting to be discovered. Popularly known as the ‘Green Island’, Pemba has scenic views of rolling hills draped in verdant clove plantations, coconut groves, and thick mangroves. All these adds to the natural beauty of the island.

In addition, it is more serene with pristine beaches with acres of white sandy beaches.
