“Farm (or sea, in this case!) to table”, The Aiyana’s cooking is all about bringing out the big flavors and using the freshest possible ingredients, with the “catch of the day” and seafood being a specialty!
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.
As part of the resort, guests have access to a beautiful swimming pool, full-service luxury spa, beach-side cabanas and a gourmet restaurant with set-up as mentioned above. Low-key entertainment includes fires on the beach with local music, singing and dance in the evenings.
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.
Fronted by the island’s famous white palm-lined beaches and clear turquoise seas, the boutique hotel has been carefully developed over eight years, working very closely with the local community.
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.
Constance Aiyana is also close to the Ngezi Rainforest, which is the last remaining tract of indigenous forest that used to cover most of Pemba Island. Ngezi is home to wonderful wildlife including the island’s endemic Pemba Flying Fox and a troop of vervet monkeys.
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.
Bird-watchers, nature lovers, daring divers and adventure seekers, come discover the fragrant Pemba Island where you can indulge in a memorable sensory holiday at Constance Aiyana.
Pemba is accessible from Dar es Salaam; a thirty-minute light aircraft flight from Zanzibar and can be part of a multi-destination safari trip or a stand-alone exotic holiday.
Fundu Lagoon is situated on a remote beach on the southwest side of the island & is only accessible by boat, the lagoon is a typical island paradise.
Manta Resort lies on the remote north-western tip of Pemba Island, on a gorgeous white beach overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Pemba Channel.
