“A stunning hotel reminiscent of a colonial country club. White washed walls, crisp linen, dark wood furnishings. Each room has a private balcony with beautiful sea views. Multiple dining options specialise in Swahili cuisine and seafood. A great spot for seaside family fun or romantic breaks. ”

Hotel Overview

“Stone Town's most upmarket hotel is perfect if you prefer having creature comforts to hand. Interiors are reminiscent of an African colonial country club, with dark wood furniture and muslin drapes, while the swimming pool has views over the Indian Ocean. While it lacks the character of other less conventional options the Serena Inn is a comfortable choice for exploring Stone Town and the surrounding area.”
