Fantastic stay. an african-style hotel with a wonderful garden, very close to the ocean. Clean rooms, everything as it should be, high-speed internet for a fee in the rooms, free in the lobby. Great group of animators, they always have something to offer tourists. Varied cuisine, although not as rich as in other countries, but thanks to it less food is wasted. I recommend this "paradise".

We had a great stay at Kiwengwe Beach Resort. Great infrastructure, staff and especially service. It feels like being in a luxury bubble. If you want to experience the real Zanzibar, I recommend to do trips and to go out of the resort.
