“Fantastic !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Our welcome was warm and the manager Andres explained everything about the hotel and rooms and even showed us to our villas. The room was massive with a lovely bath area as well. Each room opened into a sitting area with a small plunge pool.

The hotel also has an infinity pool and bar attached which faces the ocean. Mnemba Island is located about 2 km offshore and we took a snorkelling trip there which was lovely.

The beach below the hotel is subject to the vagaries of the tide since there is a reef just off Matemwe. When the tide is out, you can walk along the beach and wade out to the reef if you choose to. The hotel provides you reef shoes. But when the tide comes in, you cannot go down to the beach.

The room has a large screen TV and they have a selection of DVDs on offer. The toiletries provided are thoughtful and small touches like giving a set of pool towels in the villa make your stay a memorable one. One consideration is that the water is a bit salty so you need to use bottled water to brush teeth etc.

Bottled water is provided on the house. The food is lovely and service quite efficient. There is wifi in the sitting area near the restaurant.

Kasha is easily the best hotel we stayed in on our trip to Tanzania.

Kasha is a little bit of paradise on the east coast of Zanzibar. It was strongly recommended to us by Imagine Africa for the final part of our honeymoon and they couldn’t have suggested better. With just a handful of villas, each stunningly decorated and with its own plunge pool, Kasha made a perfectly romantic setting. When we arrived our immaculate villa was decorated with bright hibiscus flowers, and we quite happily spent the next five days relaxing in this beautiful place. A few of the review here criticise the ‘bumpy’ road getting there but this is really no big deal – it’s what you get for a private spot in an unspoilt part of the island. The food was fresh, imaginative and delicious and we still miss our pre-dinner cocktails as the sun went down. Don’t miss Mariam’s wonderful massage in the spa or snorkelling on the coral reef.

Room Tip: Go for a sea front villa - it is worth the small amount of extra money for the extra privacy and the...

We visited Kasha for nearly one week during our honeymoon and it couldn't be a better decision! There are only 11 villas what makes it a really relaxing and private place (exactly what you are looking for on your honeymoon). All the hotel is amazing but once you enter your villa with private splash pool you just want to live there forever. The views from every point of the hotel are impressive and the FOOD is really really GOOD. One of the best things is the excellent service from management & all the staff which make you feel like home.

Our recomendation, DONT MISS IT!

I visited Kasha for the first time in October 2013 as an agent, and I have to say I was very impressed. On arrival you walk into a very grand and airy communal area, housing a bar, restaurant, boutique, tv area and Baraza style comfy area. Very impressive.
The rooms are all spacious detached villas with plunge pools, are of a very good standard and lovely to be in. Each room has a covered outdoor area.
We visited this resort when it first opened, and the gardens have now matured and are great.
People sometimes mention the beach here, but I don’t see the problem. At high tide you can swim straight from the steps, and at low tide you have a massive beach right next to the hotel. Also the pool area is great, very relaxed and the pool bar serves great food.
I think Kasha is definitely one of the best options for honeymooners and romantics in this price range. In fact it is great value for what you get, and I think it is worth pushing your budget to get to if you are close.
This is a very relaxed resort with very charming staff and excellent food…book with confidence.

Room Tip: It is worth spending the extra for a Seafront villa, as it has better privacy in your pool than Seav...

When you get to the Hotel it's Very Very Good Set on Coral with great views of the Indian Ocean & coral reefs White sands leading to the local fishing village. The one thing that is not easily detailed is the approach to the hotel (From "main" Tarmac road it is a 4 kms transit on of what can only be described as an off-road challenge that takes 20/25 mins to negotiate) So transfer from the Airport to the Hotel takes around an hour, & as such not a very good first impression experience - BUT once in the Hotel you will have a beautiful stay in quite seclusion with excellent service & on site management. Casual smart is the dress code (Forget your Suit & Tie This is Africa).
The Accommodation/rooms are primarily 11 well appointed Lodges large open plan design space, including Sunken Bath, Open shower, twin sinks, Towels Shampoo gels etc, Hair dryer, TV, Fridge, Tea coffee & Bottled water, inside & your own covered outside lounge with Plunge pool and sun patio set in flowery setting.
There is also a secluded self contained House set to the side of the main complex with it's own pool & staff for a secluded family holiday.
The Main Reception, Lounge, Bar & Dinning areas are large airy open areas with local Thatch & wood roof beams. African Dim lighting at night makes for a great intimate feeling in rustic local setting.
At the bottom of the Grounds close to the Sea and Reef there is a nice Pool, Sun beds with Beach towels, a Bar & Dinning area & a Spa just to the side. The beach is accessed by steps onto the coral (you might get feet wet at high tide!).
The beach walk takes you past a few similar private hotels & houses as well as past the local fishing village. The local fishing fleet is something to see it is somewhat basic to say the least! The locals & kids love football and it is played everywhere in the villages & on the beach.
A beautiful place well appointed well worth the stay our only fault would be our transit to the hotel was an experience that we were not expecting. We arrived late evening into Zanzibar & were not informed / aware of the "Zanzibar Massage" final track to the hotel. However once there the Management & Staff made every effort to make our stay they a very pleasant enjoyable stay. This they do in a very friendly natural helpful personal way to all of the guests with a "Nothing is too much trouble" attitude that can only be described as excellent.
The basic ratings card below does the basic but we enjoyed our stay, ask the management for tours and the like & they will organize it for it for you. Make sure the transfer to & from are included and you can pay by card (+4% charge) at the end of your stay.
You will not be disapointed by your stay at the Kasha Boutique Hotel Have a good holiday

Room Tip: All the rooms look good. Have a reasonable view of the Sea & Reef, lower lodges could possible...

Beautiful Villa in great location! The setting was picturesque and the private splash pool at each villa was a real treat.
The villas are really spacious and the decor and design is beautifully traditional.
The food offerings at the pool bar was fantastic (extra cost) and the main restaurant offered a great selection of good food.
This hotel is very exclusive and private and I was impressed overall.

This hotel was a perfect honeymoon spot. Spent 5 days of pure relaxation at this hotel and for Zanzibar the quality of amenities and location were excellent (in particular for snorkelling). It's far from Stone town and in a remote part of the Island so you will be doing all your meals at the hotel but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality. What stood out other than the idyllic location was the service from the couple who run the place. They really stood out for the personal attention they showed us and this ran through to the friendly and efficient service provided by all of the staff. Really a cut above in terms of quality.
