      Zanzibar Serena Inn

      Zanzibar Serena Inn, Tranquility Amidst Bustling Zanzibar in Eastern Africa

      For a thousand years, Zanzibar was one of the world’s crossroads of trade, with Persians, Arabs and Europeans attracted to its exotic exports. Stone Town’s architecture is testimony to this cultural heritage. Flanked by an exotic mix of sultan's palaces, Portuguese forts, ancient dhow harbors, and bright bazaars, the Serena Inn is a haven of tranquility and opulence amongst the bustle of one of Africa's most ancient and most enchanting towns. Masterfully restored, the Serena Inn has been styled to represent the epitome of Swahili style, ethnic elegance and Arabic opulence. Occupying two historic seafront buildings within the town, the inn provides commanding majestic views of the Indian Ocean. The hotel offers the best in island hospitality. All bedrooms overlook the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, while the interiors echo Zanzibar’s rich Arabian heritage. Dining is a feast of variety, with local seafood reflecting many cultural influences. After the heat and dust of Stone Town, the rooms in the 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. 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 leading onto balconies, some of which feature massive free-standing hammocks. Each of the 51 guest rooms 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, and a concierge. Activities such as touring Stone Town, the Jozani Forest, and the Spice Tours can be arranged at an additional cost.
