The Aiyana Resort & Spa – Barefoot Luxury in Pemba Island, Zanzibar | Black Platinum Gold

Pemba Island (Zanzibar archipelago) is blue hues and shifting sands, still largely “undiscovered”, and you’ll still have most things to yourself, which is a big part of the island’s appeal.

On the northern most edge of Pemba Island, nestled in between fragrant tropical gardens and the white powdery beaches, you’ll find The Aiyana Resort & Spa.

Winner of a TripAdvisor 2018 Travellers’ Choice award, The Aiyana Resort & Spa is hedged by pure, unspoilt landscapes and features luxurious, ecologically-built villas – some with their own private infinity pool, all facing the sparkling Indian Ocean.

The villas are all inspired by African architecture with high ceilings, a pastel pallet and built using locally sourced materials such as coconut brooms and limestone.

ACCOMMODATION – The Aiyana Resort & Spa

All the Villas have been designed with neutral tones and a sense of minimalist beach vibe throughout. Locally sourced materials such as wood have been used to create Zanzibari-style doors with lush well-kept gardens throughout. Each villa has been built to face the sea, and all come with a lounge area for relaxing as well as large en-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers.

All of them come with modern amenities to make any stay comfortable and relaxing.

From the sexy Prestige Villa to the lavish Presidential and Royal Mansions, all the 30 Villas are the epitome of Luxury and Serenity.

DINING – The Aiyana Resort & Spa

The dining options range from the Aiyana’s formal restaurant, to private meals on the beach, in your villa or even on the island under the stars.

You can tuck into fresh seafood and African-inspired delicacies at the resort’s ocean-view restaurant, and the bar is a cosy spot to wind down in the evening. Make dinner a romantic occasion with its private dining option; indulge in a candlelit meal beneath a starlit sky as you listen to the gentle waves rolling in.


Using natural products inspired by plants from the Indian Ocean, The Maji Spa at The Aiyana is the place to be for a pampering session. Whether you choose a facial or massage, the friendly staff can customise any treatment to suit your needs.
