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

We went to Kono Kono on our honeymoon and we had a good time, but it was certainly not great value for money. Location is absolutely amazing and the rooms are big and clean - we had an ocean view villa so that probably helped. however this is where the great things stopped; the staff was not very service focused...

The hotel is very nice, beach and sea beautiful, the food is very good, well prepared and of very good quality. Good choice of wines. The villas are simply stunning with a lot of privacy. A lot of effort is put into making sure everything is very classy (from the background music during dinner to the presentation of the buffet... More

After three weeks on the go in Kenya and Tanzania, this was to be a cherry on the top of the trip.It was more like a whole jar of cherries....I had a villa with a beach view that was a 10 on a scale of 10. It could not have been any better as it was luxe in every respect....this... More

After an amazing safari in mainland Tansania, we spent one week in this beautiful hotel in October 2014 - and things got even better :-) From check-in to check-out we had a great time with nothing to complain about. Our villa was superb, the food and wines were absolutely delicous every single night (breakfast as well) and their staff was... More

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

We stayed at Konokono for a week, and came to Zanzibar to relax. The location of the hotel is at one of the best beaches of the island! The rooms are spacious and the hotel has beautiful gardens. Konokono is very much a boutique hotel with only 24 villa’s no buildings on either side of the property. Because of that... 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
