Perfect place. Nice pool, very close to the beach. Cottages clean and spacious. Very, very, very good food prepared by Domenico, owner of the hotel. Resonable prices. Staff is nice and helpful (greetings to Shani and the rest of staff). Highly recommended.

This review is for "Kiwengwa Apartments Boutique Hotel" (not 100 % sure whether it's the same as "Kiwengwa Apartments". My wife and myself stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in January 2017 and we did enjoy it, even though it is not exactly "luxury" compared to other hotels along the beach in Kiwengwa (but it is not as expensive...

Only stayed one night, but overall very pleasant. Rooms are not luxurious but are comfortable, clean and well kept. Food at restaurant run by very friendly Italian owner/chef was delicious - had the lobster pasta. Breakfast was also great. It would be a great place for families or those looking for a quieter peaceful stay compared to other more touristy...

I was with a group of about 10 people and we all loved our stay. We were able to eat in the restaurant for every meal which was decadent and delicious. The owners of the property know their stuff!! The chef/owner is Italian and makes the most delicious pasta and three course meals (pesto pasta was my favorite!). The pool...

We spent 9 days in this peaceful place. Domenico, chef and owner, is a wonderful and kind person. He gave us precious suggestions to enjoy our experience in Zanzibar. We ate delicious dishes (fish, local, italian and international). Eva and Shanice are perfect !!

I stayed at Kiwengwa Apartments for a long weekend during October 2016 and highly recommend it.

We found the perfect place for a family vacation. We have two young daughters and needed an apartment that has two rooms since the girls are not old enough to stay in a separate room. After a frustrating search online, I stumbled up on this nice place. Very clean and quiet, very lovely people!! We were there in June so...

Such a quiet peaceful place. The room was a thatched cottage situated directly on the poolside. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable for 4 people. The restaurant was brilliant, and eating there was always a treat. The chef was the owner, and he was always very knowledgable and helpful with all our needs. Whilst we were there, it was daughters...
