One of the small luxury hotels of the world, The Serena Inn in Zanzibar Stone Town presently provides the most upmarket luxury accommodation and service in Stone Town, operated by the Serena Hotel Group and owned by the Aga Khan.

The grand hall has been entirely decked out with antiques and artefacts, including an ancient old telephone from its external communications days, with a view to recreating a sense of the opulence of the Zanzibari hey-days. It occupies a prime location on the waterfront near the town centre, and is the only hotel in town with a particularly inviting swimming pool. It is spaciously grand and expensive, but service and ocean-view dining are reliably good.

The Serena provides a range of facilities befitting a hotel of its class, including air conditioned accommodation and a fully equipped business centre.
