I have visited Zanzibar several times - each time searching for a place to stay. My searching days are over - this is the ONLY place to stay in Zanzibar! Domenico and Gertrude have made an absolute oasis at Kiwengwa. I plan to escape again to the clean, comfortable rooms, the beautfully maintained pool and courtyard, and the incredible food!... More

We have stayed in this hotel three years in a row, and can definately recommend it. It is a small family run hotel with excellent home made food.

Stumbled upon this place by googling accommodation in kiwengwa. Its lovely. The owner goes out of his way to make sure his guests are happy. Amazing food especially the breakfast which is included in the cost (chocolate brownies!) and it has a menu written in english which is actually pretty hard to find in Italiano Kiwengwa. Pool is great too.

I stayed at Kiwengwa Apartments in September. Upon arrival I was met by the owner himself and I was made to feel very welcome and at home immediately. The lodge is small and therefore very personal and intimate, perfect for a couple's get away, a family holiday, or if you're traveling solo like I did. The food is superb, a... More
