Location of Zanzibar Serena Hotel

The Zanzibar Serena Hotel is in the ancient Stone Town - famous for its narrow streets, heavily carved wooden doors and rich history.

Zanzibar is also famous for growing spices and 75% of the world's cloves are grown here. Zanzibar is well known for being a wonderful tropical respite with fantastic scuba diving in clear, warm water and soft sandy beaches lined with palm trees. For those with historical and architectural interest, the Stone Town offers a fascinating insight into Zanzibar's rich history. Zanizbar hotels is the ideal way to discover this fascinating island.
