Me and my friend stayed at the Kiwengwa Beach Resort for 7 days and that was one of the best vacation in my life. The food was very delicious and various, hotel offers different kinds of special dinners like African or Italian. Room and the whole hotel were clean and tidy; the animators Faustin and Adam were very funny and engaged in their jobs. I’m definitely in love with Zanzibar and I think I will come back here more than once! ❤️

We had a really pleasant stay in here. The hotel is well designed with a magnificent view of the sea from the pool. The staff is kind and helpful, trying to make your holiday an interesting adventure. While sunbathing you can admire local people - Masai and even buy some souvenirs from them. The food is quite diversed and most of the times it is possible to find a dish you like.

Dear Carolinem, Thank you for taking the time to share your review with our team here at Kiwengwa Beach Resort. We appreciate your invaluable feedback even if negative so we would like to explain to you the circustance around your negavive review. Firstly we take every necessary precaution to make sure all of our guests feel comfortable and safe throughout their vacation with us. Secondly, we do not give the AI bracelets upon check in for any child or adults under 18 years old and also our staff in all bars are not serving the alcohol to any child under any circumstance. We have a lot of families and friends in-house and most of them are consuming alcohol in groups and we had no complaints or comments or any one asked for a help because one of them was drunk. Additionally we investigated with all staff in the hotel areas if this happened and all of them denied, logically if this did happen at least one of the members of staff or even one of the guests will inform us at the reception. Within the resort we take security as one of our top priorities to ensure guest safety at all times. In regards to the incident you conveyed you had instigated issues with other guests on the beach and if you had come to reception we could have solved the problem immeditely instead you caused many arguments with one guest inparticular over a sunbed. Our team are always on hand to help and support our guests to the best of their ability and we are very sorry that you felt your expectations had not been met. We would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us and sincerly hope you will reconsider returning in the future. Kind regards Kiwengwa Beach Resort Team
