Aiyana is one of our top picks for travellers seeking luxurious accommodation, and oodles of activities, on Pemba. Aiyana has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor and regularly receives rave reviews.


Travellers to Pemba may fly from Dar es Salaam’s international airport (a journey of 1 hour) or the airport on Zanzibar (30 minutes). From Pemba Airport, the road transfer to Aiyana takes approximately an hour and a quarter. A warm welcome awaits all arrivals!


Aiyana occupies a particularly scenic part of the island, and the site features white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and colourful tropical grounds. The communal buildings are whitewashed structures, positioned to maximise ocean views. The interiors include a shisha lounge area, with comfortable mats and cushions. This backs on to Aiyana Restaurant, where guests can tuck in to delicious international-and-Zanzibari fusion cuisine. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and prides itself particularly on fresh fish specialties! Aiyana’s bar is situated in the property’s beach house – here, you can choose from a selection of cool drinks, beers, spirits, and cocktails, and perhaps find a pleasant spot amidst the terraces to watch the sun set. The lodge has an infinity pool too, in addition to a spa offering a great range of relaxing and revitalising treatments. And anyone in need of a little retail therapy will love browsing the two shops on site, one stocking souvenir items and the other exclusive artworks.

Guest accommodation at Aiyana consists of 30 villas, all positioned either side of the communal buildings and benefiting from lovely ocean views. Five categories are available – Prestige, Senior, Ambassador, Royal, and Presidential. All are beautifully furnished. The Prestige is the entry-level option (85 sq. m), with one bedroom, a telephone, a satellite television with DVD, air conditioning, a mini-bar, a safe, and en-suite facilities comprising flush toilet, twin washbasins, shower and separate bathtub. There is an outside shower too, as well as a greeting pavilion, an outdoor sitting sala, and spacious gardens to the front and rear. The Senior offers all these amenities, plus a lounge. If you are looking for a two-bedroom property, you could consider the Ambassador, which has a long covered veranda and a private infinity pool! Each Royal Villa has three bedrooms, and the Presidential has two bedrooms and occupies an astonishing 340 square metres of floor space overall.


The activity options at Aiyana are also very impressive.
