The Aiyana nestles on the northern most edge of Pemba Island, on a remote and tranquil white-sand beach.

Pure and chic, The Aiyana has been designed and built around the concept of simple materials and quality craftsmanship, embracing a vernacular architecture of high ceilings, pastel white colours, fragrant gardens, natural forms and traditional African building materials.

The result is 30 villas, all with wonderful views over the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon, the coral reef and the Indian Ocean beyond, that sit at one with the surrounding landscape.

Guests can explore the clear waters by dhow, head out into the surrounding forests or experience the laid back local culture on excursions to the nearby town Chake Chake. 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. Of course, simply doing nothing is also an option.
