Have been to Zanzibar 3 times in the past 4 yrs. Just got back from there a week ago.

Tembo Hotel right on the waterfront in Stone Town is a good option to be close to everything within walking distance. Price is about $100 USD per night and includes a decent breakfast. Also practically next door to Foorondohi (sp?) Gardens on the water front for the nightly seafood market. (Awesome seafood feast every night).

I see you are planning to spend 7 days in Kendwa. If you are planning on vegetating on the beach for this many days, then this is a good choice. In Kendwa there is not much else to do except beach and some scuba diving.

I would recommend if you are wanting to do some beach time and some local activities, consider 3 o 4 days in Kendwa to enjoy the beautiful beach, then transfer a few more minutes north to Nungwi for a few days. There is more to do there: more restaurants/beach bars, some vendors selling their wares, scuba diving centre, a few local tours (ie: snake farm, dhow buildiing centre), and just all around more activity.

I have spent time in both locations, and after 3 days in Kendwa, I got very bored so spent a few days in Nungwi.

if you'd like a recommendation for accomm. in Nungwi, I have stayed at Amaan Bungalows in the ocean front room. Also there is another 5 star hotel that has opened last year called the Zee (Zed) Hotel right on the ocean front a stone's throw from Amaan Bungalows.
