About Serena Inn
Idyllically situated on the sea-front of ancient Stone Town, and flanked by an exotic mix of sultan's palaces, Portuguese forts, ancient dhow harbours, and bright bazaars, the Zanzibar Serena Hotel is a haven of tranquility and opulence amongst the bustle of one of Africa's most ancient and most enchanting towns. The Inn has been styled to represent the epitome of Swahili style, ethnic elegance and Arabic opulence, setting it apart as one of the finest hotels in Zanzibar.
After the heat and dust of Stone Town, the accommodation in the Zanzibar Serena Hotel is a haven of cool and shade. They offer a choice of luxury accommodation including Standard Rooms, Prime Rooms or Suites. With high ceilings, shuttered windows and cool white walls, they are constructed in the traditional Swahili manner, whereby the size is dictated by the length of the mangrove poles that make up their ceilings.
The hotel is in Stone Town, which is in the 'Old Town' of Zanzibar City, which lies on the western side of the island.
How to get there
Zanzibar has an international airport, which is approximately 20 minutes flight from the mainland.
There are daily flights linking Zanzibar with Dar es Salaam, Tanga, Arusha, the northern safari circuit airstrips and Nairobi (Kenya).
Ferries and speed boats link Zanzibar with Dar es Salaam daily and with Pemba several times weekly.
The airport is 7km south of Zanzibar Town and the journey takes 15 minutes by taxi. Airport transfers available upon request from the hotel
