We had amazing 5 days at Konokono for our honeymoon. It was nearly empty and we had the beautiful beach just for us. If you are looking for a special place to relax and chill this is perfect. If you want more action, Bars and Clubs, go somewhere else. One tipp: we got to know Mr. Mussa from the village... More

Dear Chris, thank you very much for your kind review; we are happy to know that you spent a nice honeymoon with us! As for the excursions, we would like to underline that we work with reliable companies that provide adequate services with full insurance for the guests; this is not the case of the beach boys - very rare...

The Konokono resort is a beautiful small hotel, in the middle of well maintained half wild gardens. It is quite remote (you go through 10/15mn of terrible dirt road to get there from the main road), but this is what is appreciable. Really feels sometime like there is nothing else on earth... The villas are spacious, simply furnished but chic,... More

My wife and I spend 8 days and nights in Kono Kono and had an excellent time. Not only the Villa`s, the location and Restaurant but expecially the Kono Kono Team made our stay oustanding. Long walks and sunbathing at the white beach, garden and Restaurant were so special that we could recharge the batteries of lifes. The cleaness of... More

We were there in Low Season and it was quite empty. So there was no spa or any other activity available. The breakfast was ridiculous, the salad we had for lunch absolutely overpriced, but the dinner menu (half board) was very good. We had Bungalow 2 next to the Restaurant - forget privacy on this terrace and its plunsh Pool.... More

Dear Doris, thank you for your review. We would have more appreciated if you could have given your feedback directly to us instead of putting it online and harming our reviews. It is really disappointing to read these kind of comments from someone being part of the Hotel Management and - moreover - from someone who stayed here on a... More

What can be said about Konokono other than, perfection. My wife and I spent 8 days in Zanzibar, all at the Konokono resort. We were picked up on time at the airport and made it to the resort in just over an hour. A lot has been said about the private road leading up to the resort and all I... More

We visited the newly renovated resort this month. It was lovely and clean. The pool has been upgraded to an infinity pool overlooking the beach below. The new restaurant and pool area are very nice, and the food was excellent. The villas are as always nice. We were sad to see that the outside bathtubs were gone, and there is... More

If you are looking for a piece of Paradise, relaxation, beach and sea, there is no better place in Zanzibar. Gain peace of mind you only get on a desert island, but who wants to go there already. We spent 2 glorious weeks. From the first minute on each request was read from the eyes of us. The staff is... More

We choose Kono Kono because of the location and of course what we imagine how it could be there. Both in reality was awesome, the only one west side beach on the east side of sansibar, no crowd of tourists on the beach, we were the only guests at the beach - a dream. Our bungalow was a ocean view... More

This resort is located far from any civilization. It's the perfect place to escape reality and enjoy a little peace and quiet. Positives: Great welcome by senior management, beautiful room, inside and out with beach and sunset views. Beach is incredibly quiet and relaxing and stretches quite far with no one in sight. Bar service on the beach. Clean pool.... More

Our stay at the Kono Kono resort was overall disappointing, but they managed to salvage our experience with the wonderful Zanzibari night they host on Thursdays. They cover all the tables with Zanzibari fabrics to feel festive, and offer local dishes for dinner, that in our opinion, were the best food options we had had during our entire stay! We... More
