Unbelievable honeymoon at Kono Kono. Place to be in Zanzibar, a must! Wonderful and warmly welcome by the team. Great honeymoon pack at our arrival. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price. We've found what's called paradise...

Best for rest and relaxation. It's a little far if you are interested in a lot of activities! As many tours go via/past stone town. The food was nice and the wine list was fabulous! The staff were very helpful and the spa had fair prices. Not suited to children as best for romance/honeymoon.

We are a couple that came for six nights and extended our stay for two more because it was so good. We found friendly stuff and management, excellent service; food was delicious and varies; spectacular pool and beach and huge comfortable Vila that get cleaned 2-3 times a day. The entire place was clean, charming and inviting. We warmly recommend.

We spent 5 nights at Kono Kono resort after 2 weeks Safari. 24 large villas with private garden and outdoor spa, in a beautiful park. The shore is really marvellous and looks like in the most beautiful postcards with a sweet white sand, like powder, and probably the only hotel in the whole area where the sea is still there... More

Kono Kono was fantastic, great rooms (we had a sea view village, but a friend with garden view had the same room just not the view), the sand on eth beach was like powder, staff was friendly & accommodating, pool & bars/restaurant were also good. Only draw back is it was a long way from town, but the good qualities... More

We spent 5 nights at Konokono, after a 10 day safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Great: The facility is absolutely beautiful, and the beachfront villa where we stayed was huge and luxurious. The food is excellent, I enjoyed each meal we had at the resort, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We were celebrating our anniversary during this trip,... More

I'm a little late in writing this review....but this was an excellent place to stay and we have no complaints. It's quiet, quaint and not overly crowded. Yes the road was a little bumpy coming into the resort but please keep in mind it's on a nature preserve..away from the hustle. Kono Kono is nothing but a paradise.

The Kono Kono Beach Resort has a beautiful infinity pool that overlooks the Michamvi Bay. There is plenty of area to sunbathe, with a large white-tiled patio that has several beach chairs. There are no umbrellas at the pool (there are at the beach though), so to get shade you have to sit underneath a thatch-roof covered section of the... More

Banal, perhaps, as a title, but not too far from truth. Konokono is very pretty, charming, cleverly built. Very comfortable, with very big rooms ("villas"), well appointed and well kept. The open air restaurant and the beach bar are both pretty, charming and romantic, the quality of the food is excellent (though, at the price, one would expect that more... More

With a breathtaking location, Kono Kono is supposed to be one of the best places in all Zanzibar... But: Arrival by the last 2 Kms it's not a way to arrive into a luxury hotel because of it horrible manteinance. Staff is veeeery kind but not really professional. Rooms are very nice and big and it feels you very comfortable.... More

Dear Mr Ventura, thank you for your review. It is sad to read these comments especially after having spoken with you everyday during your stay asking if everything was okay. As for the road, we have explained that we have began to smooth it now. We consider every critic very seriously to improve our services but we can't agree with... More
