Zanzibar Serena Hotel

Idyllically situated on the seafront of ancient Stone Town, and flanked by an exotic mix of sultan’s palaces, Portuguese forts, ancient dhow harbors and bright bazaars, the Zanzibar Serena Hotel is a haven of tranquility and opulence among the bustle of one of Africa’s ancient and enchanting towns. The hotel has been styled to represent the epitome of Swahili style, ethnic elegance and Arabic opulence.

After the heat and dust of Stone Town, the accommodations in the Zanzibar Serena Hotel is a haven of cool and shade. With high ceilings, shuttered windows and cool white walls, the rooms are constructed in the traditional Swahili manner. Each of the 51 rooms and suites is adorned with arched niches, antique plates and brass lamps and feature traditionally carved furniture with basket weave and ceramic inlay. Dine at the Baharia Restaurant onsite, which offers a selection of international dishes and inspired interpretations of traditional Swahili recipes. Guests are also welcome to enjoy Baharia’s weekly Swahili banquets by the pool.
