We travelled as two couples and stayed for 4 nights in Villa Pwani 2 bedroom Villa at Kikadini, in Jambiani village after our 5 day Tanzanian Safari. It was the perfect way to end our Tanzanian adventure - relaxing by the seaside, with the ultimate in service and high quality food on a beautiful property catering only to 12 people... More

We were a group of 3 couples who travelled to Tanzania for 10 days and Zanzibar was our last stop. Kikadini Villa is on the East Coast of Zanzibar in Jambiani and is about a 60-75min drive from the airport. This has 3 villas, and we stayed in Villa Palm which had three bedrooms, one on the ground floor and... More

We were three couples, so we had a lovely, separate, 3-bedroom villa to ourselves. Each room has large double bed, own bathroom, airconditioning, ceiling fan. The three bedroom villa also has its own roof terrace with plenty of shade for lazing, reading, taking advantage of the sea breeze, or looking at the stars (spectacular!). The stairs are challenging in the... More

We stayed at Kikadini at the end of our honeymoon-- after having spent 10 days on Safari in Kenya. We were looking to have a luxurious, relaxing time in Zanzibar to cap off the trip. We definitely found that at Kikadini! We had researched 5 or 6 places in Zanzibar, and ultimately we settled on Kikadini and we're happy we... More

I enjoyed any minute of my stay in this boutique hotel. The villas offer very large and comfortable rooms nicely decorated. The staff is kind and gentle. The food is amazing (in particular the exquisite Thai food, the lamb and the home made bread). The new management is as efficient as generous. A great thanks to Jeremie, Kity, Sisil and... More

As I was planning a stay for a group of four in Zanzibar after climbing Kilimanjaro, I thought Kikadini was an ideal find. Unfortunately, it has become a traveler’s nightmare. I contacted Kikadini four months before our planned stay, provided my credit card number and received a written confirmation. When another friend wanted to join us at the hotel, they... More

This is a beautiful Moroccan-style boutique hotel on the quiet, picturesque east coast of Zanzibar. It consists of five recently built villas with ten private suites. We stayed in Palm Villa 2. All of the villas and the hotel itself have been tastefully decorated with some excellent paintings and furniture to match the Moroccan architecture. It is right next to... More
