About Zanzibar Serena Hotel
Ideally situated on the seafront of Stone Town, the hotel overlooks a sweeping curve of beautiful white sandy beach. The Serena is charming, intimate and romantic with interiors echoing the island's rich Arab influence, with whitewashed walls, dark woodwork and crisp linens. All 51 bedrooms and the private swimming pool overlook the azure waters of the Indian Ocean and the lazy dhows that plough the sea opposite the restaurant's windows, affording stunning views over dinner. The restaurant offers local specialties including freshly caught seafood with mixed spices. Guests are invited to take part in excursions to experience a succession of hidden beaches, spice gardens and private watersports.
