The Aiyana, Pemba Island, Zanzibar

The Aiyana nestles on the northern most edge of Pemba Island, a mere 30 minutes mini-plane ride from Zanzibar, having the most beautiful natural beach.


Pure and chic, The Aiyana has been designed and built around the concept of “simple materiality and consummate craftsmanship”. The vernacular architecture, high ceilings, pastel white colours, fragrant gardens, natural forms and traditional African building materials come together perfectly and melt into the sublime natural décor of this little slice of heaven.
All the 30 villas range from 80 -160sqm and enjoy wonderful views over the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon, the coral reef and the Indian Ocean beyond.
All villas have a view of the sea from every bedroom.
The Aiyana is an idealistic place to discover mother nature at its purest state with the blend of local culture and heritage. Farm to table, our cooking is all about bringing out the big flavors.
You’ll leave feeling dazed by this pure African getaway!
