A boutique hideaway in the heart of historic Stone Town, Zanzibar Serena Hotel shows off a very different side of Zanzibar. This is no by-the-numbers beach hotel; instead you’ll find a heritage property with real character and a luxurious feel.

The hotel accommodation is airy and comfortable with free Wi-Fi and complimentary mineral water in every room. On arrival you’re treated like old friends with a cool towel and a refreshing glass of juice – a lovely touch after your journey. Once you’ve settled in you can make use of the resort’s chilled-out pool area or take the complimentary transfer service to the resort’s private beach, called the Mangapwani Beach Club.

The real beauty of the lodge is its stunning location – you’ll find yourself surrounded by palaces, mosques, dhow harbours and bustling bazaars. This is your gateway to the fascinating past and lively present of Zanzibar as you explore the history and culture of Stone Town. Ideal for a short stay or as a part of a multi-centre holiday in Africa, Zanzibar Serena Hotel offers a truly unique experience.


The hotel is situated on the sea front of Stone Town, enjoying stunning views over the Indian Ocean. Stone Town is one of the most unique locations in Zanzibar – in fact even in the whole of Tanzania – and has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status. It is home to a range of amazing historical buildings that you can easily explore, including the House of Wonders palace, the Old Fort and a range of beautiful mosques and cathedrals.
