My partner and I spent 5 nights at Konokono, and those nights were pure bliss!! The villa that we had was extremely spacious, with a relaxing ambiance. The room opened to a verandah overlooking a beautiful garden and a plunge pool- all of which are private from everyone else in the hotel. Despite previously read comments, the main pool had... More

I am not even sure where to begin with the incredible experience that I had at Kono Kono. A friend and I spent 7 nights at the resort over New Year's. We had just finished hiking Kilimanjaro, and wanted a place to rest and recuperate. This resort was absolutely perfect. Our villa was spacious, soothing and always perfectly clean. The... More

An impressive newly rebuilt lodge with about the best beach views in Zanzibar and a dining area designed to show it at its best. We knew we were on holiday once we hit the beach here. Rooms nicely appointed and large- with their own garden plunge pool and a bathroom big enough to live in with enthusiastic staff and a... More

We spent 11 nights at Konokono with our 2 year old daughter over the New year's eve, and it has been absolutely fantastic. Very spacious villas, with a private garden and a small very private swimming pool. Beautiful beach, beautiful pool, and always very very quiet, just what you need for relaxing! The food was great, but the service has... More

After one week of safari at Serengeti park we spent 5 days at konokono, the place is stunning .. A huge white sandy beach and beautiful villas surrounded by lush gardens . We stayed in a garden view villa with plunge pool, very private and intimate. Food is amazing and every night they prepare a different set up and menu.... More

We just spent a couple of days at Kono Kono after an amazing safari in Tanzania. The location is fantastic : a stunning quiet place with a beautiful beach (which is not always the case in Zanzibar). The villas are gorgeous, well decorated and very clean. The restaurant/pool area is absolutely fantastic with an unforgettable view. The staff is very... More

What we loved: Perfect place to recharge your batteries. Location is very secluded but beautiful. Small resort with a personal atmosphere. Good to know: Lots of room for improvement regarding food and service. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are ok (local dishes were excellent) but gourmets will be disappointed. Time goes a lot slowlier on Zanzibar, that's wonderful.... but this shouldn't... More

Dear Guests, thank you very much for your review. We always take into consideration our guests suggestions to improve constantly our services. As for the bath tubs outside of the patio of our villas, we would like to explain that they were present in the old Konokono and been removed since 2010. Hoping to see you again in the future,...

I went with my partner and we had an amazing experience. The villas are beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable. They have their own little and absolutely private pool. The food was good, we choose the half board option and it was great. They also have a good wine selection and a good cocktails bar. U dine with the stars... More

Following our climb up Kilimanjaro and enjoyable but dusty safari, we were looking forward to some luxurious R&R at the beach. The rough drive from the main road to the resort was certainly nowhere near as bad or as long as we'd been led to believe from some of the reviews. Having a bad road was more positive than negative... More
