Travelers' Choice
Villa Kiva is located on the long and white sandy beach of Matemwe on the north east coast of Zanzibar. Matemwe is well known for the absence of big resorts and mass tourism. It is a part of the island where it is still possible to share and live the local life, walking through a local fish market and having a relaxing time on the beach. Just in front of Villa Kiva there is the atoll of Mnemba Island where it is possible to admire the amazing reef and colourful fish both snorkeling and scuba diving.

Nice rooms, amazing view and atmosphere. Very friendly staff but also very unprofessional. I found it really hard to get information or help. Breakfast was fine but lunch and diner (restaurant) were low quality for Zanzibar standarts. (and overpriced) We stayed in 3 different hotels of the same price range while in Zanzibar and Villa Kiva was the lowest price/quality ratio.
