Once a town house famous for its marble floors and tiles, it has now been lovingly restored to offer 44 bright rooms blending classic Zanzibar style with iconic design and modern luxuries. Its roof terrace offers one of the best views in the city with a 360° panorama and is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail as the sun melts into the Indian Ocean.
Just outside of each secluded villa, you will find a lovely private gazebo draped in a flowing canopy. This provides a perfect place to enjoy the warm evening breezes and gaze at the stars as you drift off into your dreams. Each Villa has panoramic sea views from both living area and bedroom. Zanzi Resort takes every measure to ensure the absolute comfort of our guests.
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 Inn is a haven of tranquillity and opulence amongst the bustle of one of Africa's most ancient and most enchanting towns.
For those who want to experience the charm of a classic African setting with a touch of ancient Arabian mystique, the place is Beyt al Chai. This is an exquisite 5-room boutique hotel within a traditional Zanzibar house, built on 3 floors on what was once a tea house.
