Zanzibar Serena Inn

On the waterfront of the island's historic Stone Town overlooking the Indian Ocean, two historic buildings have been carefully restored and converted into a 51-room high quality hotel.

All rooms and suites are fully air-conditioned and have private toilet and bath or shower facilities; all are ocean-facing with the majority also having their own private balcony. Furnished in typical Zanzibari style with high levels of comfort and convenience, all rooms have telephones, room safes, satellite TV and minibars. There is a fresh-water swimming pool, waterfront restaurant specialising in seafood dishes and evening entertainment including Afro reggae or Zanzibari Taraab band. Trips can be arranged to Serena's own beach, barbecue and watersports facility at Mungapwani.
