For a memorable African Safari

The Zanzibar Serena Inn Hotel is idyllically situated on the sea front of ancient Stone Town, washed by the aquamarine waters of the Zanzibar channel, redolent of the scent of cloves and flanked by an exotic melange of sultan?s palaces, Portuguese forts, ancient dhow harbours, dark slave markets, and bright bazaars.

The inn is a haven of tranquility and opulence amongst the bustle of Zanzibar. Faithfully restored and lavishly embellished, the interior design concept is a fusion of authenticity and opulence that reflects the very essence of Zanzibar.
