The road from mainstreet to Hotel is like a Safari trip. You can call it also Zanzibar Safari. But after this roundabout 20 minutes rodeotrip it is really very beautiful. Very nice staff and the beach and the sea are 10 Points!!!
Kono Kono is the right place for relaxing. If you are looking for entertainment then you have to go to another place.

Once again: Many Thanks for the great support from all saff during our stay :-) :-) :-)

Room Tip: Choose a Villa close to Restaurant

Amazing food too.
Cocktails on the beach, live band in the evening.
What more could you ask for
Maybe an easier ride to the hotel, the road is a..... Not a road.

we spent 5 nights in January and I can say everything in a resort is perfect. Very nice, comfort villas with swimming pool, very nice food, high quality service... The only minus is a huge tide difference meaning there is practically no way to swim in the sea. But you have very nice swimming pool in the common area and for us that was more then enough.
Location is nice but far away from the city, last km of road is terrible but when you are there you quickly forget that.
Overall highly recommended .

Room Tip: any sea villa

This place has exceeded my expectations. The villas..the seaview restaurant.. the huge beach... It was my third vacation in Zanzibar and previously had visited other hotels In the north. This area and this resort are hidden gems. There is not a lot to do around so should you look for a peaceful and very quiet place konokono is your perfect choice. Thanks to all the staff and the chef, having excellent food in Zanzibar is a rarity, here the standard of the kitchen is comparable to European restaurants

I was there in christmas period: the villas are very confortable and full optionals!
THis is the right place if you search silence, calm and tranquillity. The restaurant menu is wonderfull and various, the plates not only are very good but also very please to the eyes!
the beach is like an heaven, the sea is fantastic and you are not annoied by beach boys.
Last but not the least, when I'm abroad I do not drink coffe because none is as the italian one but here you can find a real real italian coffe, congratulation!
the staff is warm, very kind and willing to satisfy every customer request, a special thanks to Romina for her support in excursion organization!
