Accommodations in Zanzibar Islands

Zanzibar 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. A member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, it 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.

Matemwe Lodge

When Swedish sisters Helen and Katharina set foot in Zanzibar in 1989 to set up a small lodge, they had the whole island to choose from. They chose Matemwe, perfectly situated opposite the spectacular diving and snorkeling reefs of the Mnemba atoll and surrounded by some of the best beaches of Zanzibar. Perched on an outcrop overlooking a shallow coral fringed lagoon on the quieter north-east coast of Zanzibar, Matemwe’s peaceful location and famed relaxed atmosphere, makes it the ideal place to unwind.

Built from local materials and surrounded by beautiful lush gardens, each of the 12 spacious suites has a private veranda with a hammock and sofa and expansive views of the Indian Ocean with its constantly changing hues of blue. Here you can watch the fishermen head out every morning at dawn or listen to the songs of the village women as they harvest seaweed.

Jambiani White Sands

It is located right on the beach in a small village of Jambiani about 30 minutes drive from Zanzibar city. The inhabitants of Jambiani are famous for their friendliness and generosity. It is common to be greeted “Jambo” (Hello in Swahili) as you stroll along the beach. Jambiani Beach has been named as one of the best beaches by the website of which it states, “Jambiani Beach is miles of startling white sand. It would take a lot of tourists to crowd out this piece of paradise.”

It is the place to enjoy the sun, the sea and the tranquility of nature the Spice Island of Zanzibar has to offer.  Their simple Zanzibari- style bungalows feature private walk-out balconies facing the beach front to enable our esteemed guests to enjoy the beautiful view of the Indian Ocean.
