Zanzibar Serena Inn is a luxurious hotel with one of the nicest settings in Stone Town, overlooking the azure blue waters of the Indian Ocean.
The large en-suite rooms are all well-appointed in cool white traditional Zanzibari style with all the facilities you would expect from a modern hotel. All rooms are air conditioned and have private balcony. There is a lovely swimming pool to cool off in the heat of the day with its own sun deck for relaxation. The dining room has views of the ocean and there is an open-air seafood terrace serving fresh fish. Massage and beauty treatments are available and there is a boutique and gift shop on site.
"The Serena has a lovely location on the water in Stone Town and nice pool and terrace. Personally I prefer small boutiquey type Zanzibari hotels with a more personal service, but if you want a big, modern hotel then the Serena's a good choice."
