Zanzibar serena inn

In the legendary Stone Town of Zanzibar, an island whose very name evokes East Africa’s exotic past, stands Zanzibar Serena Inn. The ambience is elegant and romantic. This stunning property is set in two historic seafront buildings that have been masterfully restored. The inn meets highest standards of luxury hospitality. Extensive recreation and watersports activity are available to guests.

Accommodation is in 51 air-conditioned rooms, all facing the ocean with en-suite bathroom facilities.
After the heat and dust of Stone Town, the rooms in the Zanzibar Serena Inn are havens of cool and shade. With high ceilings, shuttered windows and cool white walls, they are constructed in the traditional Swahili manner, whereby the size is dictated by the length of the mangrove poles that make up their ceilings. Adorned with arched niches, antique plates and brass lamps; and featuring traditionally carved furniture with basket weave and ceramic inlay, the rooms are predominantly royal blue and white. Four-poster, net draped beds dominate, offset by delicate side tables, vanity units and louver doors giving onto balconies, some of which feature massive free-standing hammocks.

We offer Standard Rooms, Prime Rooms or Suites.

All our rooms and suites are equipped with: 24-hour room service, air-conditioning, WIFI, direct-dial phone, in-room satellite TV, mini bar, private safe, 240V/3 pin (square)sockets and shaver sockets, hair driers, mosquito nets, bathrobe and slippers, umbrellas, porter/concierge, airport shuttle and limousine service.

While most of our rooms are designated non-smoking, a number of rooms are available for smokers, but these should be booked in advance.
