A tribute to Emerson Skeens
A Zanzibar resident of 25 years, Emerson found his niche here and saw opportunities to use his manifold talents and brilliant mind to create, amongst other things, three flourishing hotels.
Emerson Skeens, founding partner of Emerson Spice Hotel sadly passed away on 31st May 2014.
We will miss you, Babu!
From us all at Emerson Spice
