Tembo House Hotel

The Tembo House Hotel & Apartments has an array of antique furniture and ornaments from all over the World. Sleeping on unique Swahili beds and enjoy the wood-carved furniture which is rarely seen in many countries. Most of the rooms feature a balcony with sea or pool views. The hotel’s Bahari Restaurant offers local as well as international cuisine. All the rooms in the new wing face the Sea/Pool view balcony and the old wing faces the garden/sea view balcony.


The hotel has 37 rooms of varying sizes and comfort. All rooms are en suite and most have balconies overlooking either the beach or the hotel’s courtyard pool. The hotel is decorated and furnished in a Swahili style with antique furniture and ornaments. This gives it a refreshing amount of character but does mean that some beds are either higher or shorter than the Western expectation.

Rooms are well-equipped by Tanzanian standards, each with air-conditioning, fridge, Satellite television, and telephone. Some are quite small though it may be possible to organize a room change during less busy periods. The hotel also offers an internet café and Wi-Fi access and, for an extra charge, a laundry service.
