The new Aiyana Resort nestles on the northern-most edge of Pemba Island, a mere 30 minutes light aircraft flight from Zanzibar.

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 paradise.

Here, the concept of luxury is redefined through a sense of tactility and tranquility. Simplicity and sensuality is what makes The Aiyana so special and deserving.

The character and integrity of all materials gathered along with the traditional “savoir faire” of the locals, have formed the basis of Aiyana’s approach to the architecture and design of the resort.

Accommodation

The Aiyana offers 4 categories of rooms, all beach front.

All 30 villas enjoy wonderful views over the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon, the coral reef and the Indian Ocean beyond.

Dining

Farm to table, Aiyana’s cooking is all about bringing out the big flavors.

Dinner is set up in a different, private setting each night… from the resort’s restaurant to a beach setting under a makuti umbrella… or even on the island in front of the resort.

NB: Specials meals and set-ups organized on the beach and in privatized areas within the resort are not included in the All-inclusive package, and will carry extra costs.

Spa

Inspired by the natural elements, and reflecting it’s picturesque island setting, Aiyana’s spa offers pure pampering relaxation!

Food

All meals at Matemwe Beach House are served at a time of your choice. There is no set menu, so you can simply decide each morning what your individual menu will be for the day. (The chef will make suggestions depending on special deliveries and the catch of the day.)

The exceptional cuisine is a fusion of traditional Zanzibari and international flavours. Seafood is a speciality, and fresh fish is prepared on a daily basis.

You are also welcome to join the Matemwe Lodge restaurant at any time for a meal or seafood barbeque.

Private Bar

The private bar in Matemwe Beach House is stocked with a variety of cool drinks, wines, beers and spirits – and should you require any drink not stocked in the bar, your butler will do his best to oblige.

Activities

The diving around Pemba Island is nothing short of breathtaking. The untouched coral reefs surrounding the entire island make Pemba one of the top dive sites in the world.

The sandbank protrudes to offer a walk on the purest white coral sand, surrounded by azure blue waters. After lunch, relax on the sandbank listening to the bird life around you and the splash of waves lapping against the shore!

The Aiyana resort is your outpost into the first steps of the wildness and tranquility of Pemba. Reconnect with nature and experience a land rich in life and uninhabited space. The Aiyana is an ideal place to discover mother nature at its purest state with the blend of local culture and heritage.

You’ll leave feeling dazed by this pure African getaway!

Activities

  • Snorkelling at Mnemba Atoll is included in your rate. (However, there is a U$3 conservation fee per person, as you will snorkel in a conservation area.) Admire the vast variety and volume of marine wildlife and enjoy a scenic trip through the lagoon in one of the traditional boats
  • All levels of divers have the opportunity to explore the underworld of Mnemba Atoll, and both recreational and training dives can be arranged
