The Kiwengwa Beach Resort is located on Kiwengwa Beach, a most beautiful beach on the north eastern side of Zanzibar island. It is a splendid beach. Many hotels and resorts are along this stretch of lovely white sand beach, but it never feels crowded. However, the 'beach boys' are becoming more and more of a problem and should best be... More

Kiwengwa Beach Hotel is located directy on the most beautiful part of Kiwenwa beach. Hotel is well designed - consists of Africa-style semi-detached bungallows and 2-level pavillions surrounded by beautiful well maintained garden. Hotel area is really nice, there is enough garden space between buildings to feel relaxed and surrounded by nature. We appreciated this picturesque environment a lot. Rooms... More

First impression is good upon arrival. Very nice beach front location situated inbetween other hotels and local shops making the beach busy most of the time. The rooms defently are not 4 stars superior as the hotel is ranked and overall the place need some maintenance(indoor and outdoor). The pool is nice and big but the color of the water... More

The place is quite good with nice rooms, good food and amazing beach in front of it. Management could be improved, especially when it comes to urgent issues, some of the staff doesn't know what to do and ask to wait and wait. Prices for local craft and excursion are bit too expensive compare with the price offered by local... More

Very good place to stay in. Nice meals, nice staff, perfect beach and great environment. They could arrange all you need or imagine: tourism visits around the island, snorkelling, shopping... Delicious cocktails and one of the best beers I've ever had (Safari & Kilimanjaro). Very good South African wines as well. African dinners with showcooking. You can feel save with... More

Me and my italian fiancè stayed in this resort way back of Summer 2011. The place is truely a paradise with a very very white and fine (powder-like) sand. God took a lot of time to create this place. It's a 4 star resort, but as a travelled person like us, it's just a 2 star hotel but wait! we... More

If you want silence and rest - never choose this place. It is too noisy all day round because of a music in the bar and even worse so in the evening then italian singers start their "karaoke programme". Local excursions from the hotel are twice as expensive as from the Stowntown. Lot of "papasi" on the beach. Otherwise it's... More
