PRINCESS SALME’S SUITE
Princess Salme was the daughter of Zanzibar’s famous Sultan Said. She fell out of favour with the royal family, and sought comfort in the arms of her German neighbor Heinrich Ruete.
They fell deeply in love while talking from their windows across Stone Town’s narrow streets, and it is believed she fled to Germany, pregnant with her lover’s illegitimate child. Futile attempts at reconciling with her family were not successful, and the Princess lived the rest of life in exile in Syria.
Decorated with the grandest furniture of the Sultan’s time, and adorned with custom fittings and a fully sculpted bathroom, this suite radiates royal opulence. Bold, bright colours recreate the sense of passion and love which the Princess experienced her entire life, and a comfortable four poster bed makes it a room truly fit for a princess.
