Rooms and prices
Prices for the rooms at Mustapha's are low compared to most hotels on the island and you get access to the same stunning beach and beautiful plant life as many expensive luxury hotels, but with a more laidback vibe. Please contact us for prices, but these start from $15 per person per night, depending on the number of people and type of room.
For those of you wondering why accommodation in Zanzibar is a bit more expensive than on mainland Africa, the reason for this is having to import most foodstuffs, drinks and building materials - our costs are much higher than hotels on the mainland, so we have to pass some of that onto the customer to remain in business and to pay staff fair salaries. Nevertheless, we aim to keep prices as low as we can and to be accessible to those travelling on a budget.
