After 8 days of safari in Kenya and Tanzania, we treated ourselves to 4 nights at Konokono. it was our first visit to Zanzibar and we just knew we would want a quiet location with some luxury. The lovely Kirstin took care of us so well, and was prompt and so helpful with all our enquiries before our arrival. Our... More

We stayed at Konokono for 4 wonderful days, which left us with a taste for more (and more…). What made our stay so perfect? Most importantly, the service and staff are great and put so much attention in making the guests delighted - from a 'good morning' with a big smile, to 'just let us know what you need' and... More

Konokono is a perfect place for a honeymoon and for people that don't need action but love to read a good book in a wonderfull surounding. To find this calm place you have to drive 1.5h and the last 10minutes on a very bumpy sideroad. But it's worth it!

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...

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
