Constance Aiyana

Feefo logo


Set at the northern tip of Pemba Island, Constance Aiyana is about as far off the beaten path as you can get in the region. This accommodation requires a flight from Zanzibar Island and an hour’s transfer to reach but your worthy reward is an elegant resort set in tropical gardens and a few steps from an unspoilt Indian Ocean beach off the coast of Tanzania. Exclusive, remote and idyllic, Constance Aiyana is perfect for discerning and romantic travellers and the ideal treat after a safari in the Serengeti.

Two thousand years of passing trade and cultures have left their mark on Pemba Island and this is reflected in the architecture and furnishings of Constance Aiyana – expect traditional white-washed walls, fragrant shrubs and an eclectic blend of African and Arabic art. Accommodation takes the form of private villas. Complete with Wi-Fi, each is air-conditioned and has a full en suite bathroom and an outdoor shower. The larger villas have their own lounges and infinity pools while the Presidential Suite makes a strong claim as perhaps the most luxurious accommodation on Pemba.

Constance Aiyana is the sort of resort where you are encouraged to do as much or as little as you like. Boat trips, kayaking and snorkelling are complimentary and there is an extensive list of extra activities such as local bike tours, scuba-diving trips and Zanzibar spice tours. Alternatively, you have an outdoor sala at your villa as well as sun loungers set under thatched shade on the beach where you can nap, sunbathe, read or sketch. Naturally, Constance Aiyana also has a spa offering massages, facials and body treatments.

Prestige Villa

The single-bedroom Beachfront Prestige Villa is 85m² (900ft²) of clean-lined, white-washed luxury. Its king-sized bed faces the ocean and its garden leads you down to a silky-sand beach.

Like every villa at Constance Aiyana, the Prestige Villas are air conditioned and come with a mini-bar, LCD television with premium channels and Wi-Fi. There is a fully en suite bathroom as well as an outdoor shower and seating area – known as a sala – that is perfect for spending a lazy hour or two. The villa can accommodate two adults and a child up to the age of 16.

Other room types

Senior Beachfront Villa

The 1-bedroom Senior Beachfront Villas are similar to the Prestige Villas but have an additional indoor lounge to make them larger – a good idea for guests with a child.

Beachfront Ambassador Villa

The 2-bedroom Beachfront Ambassador Villas are twice the size of the Prestige and Senior Villas and are set over two floors: a bedroom with a king-sized bed on the ground floor and a bedroom with twin beds above. Walk outside and you find a large wooden sun deck with a shaded veranda and private infinity pool overlooking the beach.

Beachfront Royal Villa

At 270m² (3 000ft²), you should have all the space you need in the 3-bedroom Beachfront Royal Villa; each of its bedrooms is en suite, furnished with a king-sized bed and looks out over the Indian Ocean.

Presidential Villa

If you do need more space, the 340m² (3 600ft²) Presidential Villa should provide it. Able to accommodate four adults and two children under 16 in unfettered luxury, this 2-bedroom villa has a secluded setting at the edge of the resort and comes complete with a kitchenette and an extra room for an au pair, carer or nanny.


The villas at Constance Aiyana are arranged on either side of the main resort where you will find the restaurant, a traditionally-inspired Shisha lounge and well-stocked bar – all with Wi-Fi - and a pair of boutiques should you feel like shopping. Outside there is a large swimming pool around which lie sun loungers and shade umbrellas on an area that flows out onto the beach in front of the resort.

Constance Aiyana has a spa offering various treatments and therapies – often using local Indian Ocean resources – as well as a fitness centre. The double treatment room at the spa is convenient for couples who want to share the indulgence together.

Non-motorised water ports are free at the resort – grab a kayak or mask and snorkel and off you go – and there are also opportunities to take part in extra activities such as scuba diving in a marine reserve, a guided forest walk or a bicycle tour to a local village.


The main restaurant at Constance Aiyana divides its seating between indoors and outdoors and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. ‘Bringing out African flavour’ is the kitchen’s watchword and the cuisine is a fusion of international dishes and local specialities. Seafood features strongly on the menu – fish are literally bought off the boats as they come in - as do fresh fruits and vegetables while a well-stocked wine cellar ensures you have something with which to toast the night.
