VOI Kiwengwa Resort is an Italian Management Club, located on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Eastern coast of Zanzibar; it lies at only 50 minutes from Stone Town, 45 km from the airport. Wisely blending modern comforts and local tradition, this village retains a vivid “African" style, emphasized by a spectacular wooden structure in “casuarinas" and "makuti", a fiber obtained from the palm, that hosts the hall and the common services.

It is a nice complex, where the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is of good quality with Italian predominance but good, stylist and big variety, then you have some snacks in the beach bar like chips, burguers, hot dogs, fruit. Everyday you have one apperitive before dinner. Internet cost 10 euros one week, you can use almost everywhere depend the how many people is connect, but it´s ok if you compare with other places in the country. The hotel is safe although you have a safe box room that you must pay too, but in my case i didnt have any problem. The show are almost all in italian but if the staff knows that you dont speak the language they help you. The communication can be in different language is not any problem. The fitness room should improve, dont count to do any gym stuff, it´s not what you will expect. The beach is nice and nice sand, client and the people dont disturb you if you dont want it. The cost of the taxi from the airport is around 20$, dont pay 50 $ as the try to convince you.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 14 days all inclusive. We do not speak Italian and this was a problem as no information was provided for us. We were not aware of different kinds of entertainments that took place at night. To our shock we became very aware of the disco that took place two nights a week as it was impossible for us to sleep until the disco closed at one o clock. Horrible. We were in the bungalow closest to the beach nr 22 and very close to the disco.This being said, some things were good in this hotel, the boys who managed our sunbeds were very friendly and helpful. The people who worked in the restaurant were very friendly and attentive. The food was very good most days. We liked the cheese night very much. All in all, because of the lack of sleep we experienced during our stay we will not be back, sorry.

We arrived late in the night, while I was sleeping our family changed rooms to ones closer to pool which was great decision. Rooms are great, nothing way too fancy, but nothing to worry about. Animation team was friendly, even tho they mostly speak Italian and all the shows are in Italian we still went to most of them, you can still have a good laugh even if you don't understand a word, same with parties & entertainments. Food was great! Big variety of fish, meat, pastas, etc. Lunch, dinner variety changes every night. Great cocktails. People selling authentic souvenirs around of the beach were not annoying (as other people say here) but just doing their work and if you're tired of them being nice you can always walk away... But as everyone were kind to us, why shouldn't we be kind? :) Hotel manager was super helpful and good looking, if somebody knows him personally and he is not married yet, let me know! :D (HUMOUR PEOPLE, I'm not posting good review based on good looks, manager we talked to was really helpful!) Overall, it's totally not as bad as other people say on TripAdvisor. Our experience was great! I would love to come back in the future and not only once. :)

Stayed at the resort for two nights On the plus side - the beach is nice and the pool is great On the other side, the rooms are basic, the food is horrible and everyone speaks Italian all the time Will recommend to avoid if you are not from Italy

Spent 4 nights at this resort on an all inclusive package. The rooms are large and comfortable. The food is good for an island resort however after 3-4 days may be a little repetitive. All inclusive drink offerings are somewhat limited with no diet sodas and a limited cocktail offering. Additional options are available for purchase. The beach is amazing with ample deck chairs and more than happy to assist beach attendants. The staff are friendly and well intentioned. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!
