We had a first line garden room which was wonderful. The room itself is huge and spacious, tastefully and beautifully decorated. There is a little plunge pool in the garden which is private and rather lovely to just pop into every now and again. I was surprised how much we used it! The staff and Manager Maturitzo run a flawless... More

I spent my honeymoon at Kono kono in March this year and my overall impression was okay. No bath in the sea front villa which isn't great on your honeymoon. Staff was friendly and the massages good. it's very secluded and the beach is great if that's what your looking for. We were pestered by flies at breakfast which they... More

Ok, let's first get real. Zanzibar is part of Africa. There's going to be insects, flies and rough roads. The terrain and the town reflects that. We chose Kono Kono Beach Resort for our honeymoon destination after reading about it on Tripadvisor. What a great place just to be! From the moment you arrive to the moment you say goodbye,... More

The hotel is located at one of the best beaches in Zanzibar - Michamvi. The rooms are spacious and furnished with elegant simplicity. Due to the lush garden with its indigenous vegetation one does not notice that there are other bunglows in the beach resort. Because of that and the large beach one can hardly notice other guests. Staff are... More

The right place to be for a relaxing time at the white beach with palmtrees! Nothing to worry about, everything is taken care of. "Your wish is our command" is the daily routine at Kono Kono. Beautifull park, fantatic bungalows (be ware not to get lost inside your spacious bungalow), high grade of privacy. Very friendly and heplfull staff, smiling... More

We have recently been on holiday to Zanzibar and following a visit to Stone Town we went over to Kono Kono, the place is beautiful, and the staff are extremely helpful, a little laid back but meld together with the hotel to make a memorable stay. The resort has recently been refurbished and added to and whilst there is still... More

Dear Billy, thanks a lot for your review; we are glad that your enjoyed your stay in our Resort. We would like to underline that the "local entrepreneurs" don't pay taxes and they have no insurance at all for the guests. It is a precise choice made individually to second jobs "under the table" or reliable companies but we clearly... More

We have just returned from Konokono where we spent two weeks. The hotel is rather nice and the beach fabulous, but our stay was spoiled by the construction of beach villas. They are building a new villas and many days the noise of machines, including the smell of burned diesel, completely prevented to stay on the beach or pool. We... More

After a 3 week African adventure across Rwanda, Uganda, and Kenya we were looking for some luxury for a couple of days. We certainly found it at Kono Kono beach resort. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the whole place was pure luxury. Fantastic white sand beach with open air restaurant leading straight onto it. Everything was spotlessly... More
