The hotel is owned by Nassor Ali. Originally from the sister Island of Pemba, he has lived in Zanzibar all his life. If you would like to know anything about this beautiful island, its traditions and cultural heritage, he is happy to tell you about it.
After studying business for two years in the UK, Nassor travelled the world in order to discover what international guests expect and need. He opened the hotel in 1995.
Nassor is very active within the Zanzibar tourism sector. As a board member of the Zanzibar Association of Tourism Investors, he has been instrumental in representing the North of the island and developing the tourism industry in a sustainable manner.
The local community is very important to him. He supports the development of educational facilities for local children and is actively involved in environmental initiatives such as waste management and conservation. Nassor and the whole Mnarani team are looking forward to your visit and trust that you will be coming back to see us many times in the future.
