Zanzibar Serena Hotel is a 5-star hotel which occupies two historic sea-front buildings which flank an elegant pool. The poolside is the perfect place to relax and cool down after shopping in the bazaars. Although it has every modern convenience, the buildings have been well restored to maintain their original Zanzibari character.

The 52 en suite rooms are air-conditioned, with private balconies from which to enjoy the views over the Indian Ocean. Those with better sea views are classed as prime rooms. The hotel buildings form a horseshoe around the swimming pool, making the most of the sea-front location.

The main restaurant provides attentive service and very good meals. Seafood is a specialty. The a la Carte rooftop restaurant caters for only eight people and has stunning views as the sun sets over the sea.

The hotel provides complimentary transfers to its private beach club and restaurant at Mangapwani, 20 km north of Stone Town.

This is an ideal choice for people seeking international standards of comfort in old Stone Town.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
