For a thousand years, Zanzibar was one of the world's crossroads of trade. The Persians and Islamic Arabs and, much later, the Europeans were attracted to its exotic exports. Stone Town's architectural landmarks express much of the island's cultural heritage. The Zanzibar Serena Inn occupies one of them.
Set in two historic sea front buildings that have been masterfully restored, the Inn exploits its grandstand view of the Indian Ocean from every room. The interiors echo the rich Arabian influences as well as indigenous East African roots. Guest rooms are fully air conditioned, especially comfortable and elegantly furnished. Dining is a feast of variety; local seafood is a speciality and its preparation reflects the many cultural influences that passed this way. Transport is free to the private Mangapwani Beach with its exclusive beach and watersports activities. There are also excursions to the spice gardens and Jozani Forest.
