Zanzibar Serena Inn - Zanzibar Island, Tanzania

Written by

Zanzibar Serena Inn - Zanzibar Island, Tanzania

The Zanzibar Serena Inn 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 harbors, dark slave markets, and bright bazaars. It’s a haven of tranquility and opulence amongst the bustle of Zanzibar.

Faithfully restored and lavishly embellished with a collection of antique clocks, crystal chandeliers, fretwork screens, carved staircases, Persian rugs and brass-studded doors, Zanzibar Serena Inn's interior design concept is a fusion of authenticity and opulence that reflects the very essence of Zanzibar.

Each room at this Serena hotel is cool, white and constructed to the traditional design
of a Swahili house, which is dependant upon the length of the mangrove poles that
make up its ceilings.

Adorned with arched niches, antique plates and brass lamps and featuring traditionally carved furniture, cool-ceramics, intricate fretwork, draped beds and louver doors giving onto wrought-iron balconies overlooking the Persian-bath pool and azure bay beyond, each room in Zanzibar Serena Inn reflects a blend of essential Zanzibar and
world-class elegance.



Interiors echo Zanzibar's rich Arabian heritage. For a thousand years, Zanzibar was one of the worlds cross roads of trade, with Persians, Arabs and Europeans attracted to its exotic exports. Stone Town's architecture is testimony to that cultural heritage.
