A large, clean, soft white sand beach is what this place makes special. I've done a lot of travelling and this is the best beach I've ever been. Moreover there are only few guests (around 25 bungalows) with ample space on chairs, loungers, hammock beds, ... Rooms are spacious and clean. Every bungalow has a small pool, great for cooling...

The villas are well equipped, the food was exceptionally good and the dinner menus varied from a la carte to buffet. The beach is paradise and staff so friendly and helpful that every request...

We have thought long and hard how to rate Konokono. It's a bit of a mixed bag, hence not easy. On the bright side, the resort is situated on a pristine peninsula on the eastern coast of Zanzibar. The gardens are beautiful and the common areas freshly renovated. We also liked the (small) infinity pool and huge private beach. The... More

Looking for relax, courtesy, professionality, amazing location and high quality food? That's definitely the place to be! The scrupulous attention to details means that nothing is leave to chance. The discreet an delicate hospitality by all the staff makes you feel at home, but surrounded by a paradise. Definitely I'll come back!
