Wedding & Honeymoons


When it comes to unforgettably romantic backdrops, the stunning Indian Ocean views, white sandy beach and opulent Swahili décor of Zanzibar Serena Hotel offer a destination wedding setting unlike any other. The island’s natural beauty and the bustling charm of legendary Stone Town provide an idyllic setting whilst the hotel’s gracious hospitality and impeccable service add a touch of true elegance. Our oceanfront locale provides for a rich selection of venues both at the hotel and at several historic venues throughout Zanzibar.

Exchange vows on a seafront terrace, then celebrate with a Swahili-style cocktail reception by the pool. Amaze your guests with a wedding reception at the former Sultan Hamoud's residential palace or the beautifully renovated Old Dispensary, one of Zanzibar's finest historic buildings. Begin your journey together with a ceremony and reception on a traditional dhow (fishing boat) or sweep your guests off to a celebration on a deserted island in the Zanzibar Channel.

No matter how you choose to commemorate your wedding, our experienced banquets team will offer unmatched personalised care and attention, leaving you free to savour each special moment with your guests.
