“Beautiful views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Visited Kunduchi beach resort on 18 December 2013 for lunch. Beautiful views of the ocean and beach. Very crowded over the weekends. The buffet spread is amongst the best ones in Dar es salaam. This place is far from the main city and is a good 1 hour drive from the city centre.

Food is tasty and the service is top notch. Prices slightly on the steeper side. Would recommend for a lazy weekend lunch with friends and family.

Dear Guest


Many thanks for taking the time in writing this positive response. Kunduchi Beach Resort is a beautiful property with some of the best views in Dar. All the rooms are sea facing. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the food. We have changed some of the items in order to make the menu more exciting.

Kunduchi Beach Resort wishes you and the family a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Kind regards

Stayed here for two days and let me me categorize my views as:

Rooms: rooms are quite comfortable in terms of size. They need to upgrade their tv set which is outdated and 20''. Bathroom - no pressure in shower due to the rusted n broken shower rose...they dont provide any gel, shampoo etc...yes but thy do give one small local soap. Vanity basin top is so high on level tht one finds difficult to reach for gargle...kids cannot reach - poor thinking while construction.

Pool - is not big in terms of length but its more in oval shape. Water seems dirty as thy dont clean regularly. Imagine they didnt have pool towels and not even for kids. .thy told us to bring from our room towels.

Food - was good and have no complains except they should keep hot chocolate milk for kids in the buffet dinner as you charge good amount per person.

Service - is slow but all staff are doing great work to satisfy customers.

Check in n out - is quite fast ...

Beach is lovely and sitting arrangement is well done.

Overall its a good place to stay with family with std facilities.

Let's start fixing "the rules".. Where we are? In Tanzania, how is the average level of services? A disaster.
Said this, we can go on.
6 days in the resorts for a business summit, where I had the possibility to test extensively all the services of the hotel.

Let's see the details:
Rooms are very very old and poor, bad maintained but clean. Bed are very uncomfortable, you can feel the wood under the old mattress. Lining are cleaned but very old too.
Clima is old and noisy but very powerful.
Bathroom, old and showers often with low pressure.
Beach is not existing, forget to go and swim in the see, they are the first to tell you not to go mainly for safety.
Pool is nice, but old and with no service. 25 min to obtain a towel, a disaster.
Restaurant self service is serving one of the worst selection of food I ever had in my life.
Breakfast, is exactly like the self service with the unbelievable "value added" that if you have it included and you want a cappuccino this will be extra.
Restaurant (in front of the beach) is proving a different choice of food, generally quite ok, the problem is the service, slow slow slow. Expect 1h30 minimum to be end your dinner if you are alone. 45 min from the order to the appetizer is the standard.
Hotel services:
Wifi a really good coverage, but is Unacceptable to pay 10usd per day per device. Ridiculous.
Taxi from the hotel. When booked in advance from the reception are fantastic, 45usd is a very good price, consider that the hotel is very far from the city or the airport and that traffic in Tanzania is huge, to go or come back from the center you may need also 3h.
Conference center. Dirty and old. Very negative
Private beach. Is not a beach. Is just some sand in front of the beautiful garden. Not maintained and dirty,
Room Service. Inexistent
Employee: Tanzanian people are very friendly and educated, lovely. There is just one problem they are not precise and do not have any attention to the timing. A great smile all the time but after nothing will happen. Is not their fault, is fault of the management of this hote that is very very bad.
They have amazing persons but employee, do not learn by themselves. You need to train them, and not how you do now (I have seen you training.during my stay), you need to train them, vis professional expatriates with relevant experience.

I can't redo and anybody this hotel, except maybe for a cheap vacation for sure never for business.

Room Tip: Expect an extra 5% charged without anybody to tell you at the reservation if you pay with credit car...

Many thanks for the feedback received of your recent stay. I would like to apologize for your bad experience. Action will be taken on the feedback received as we see value for money and a pleasant guest experience as high priority. Kunduchi Beach Resort will undergo major refurbishment early in the new year.

The feedback on the service is very disappointing for us. The general feedback has been good and we were making positive strides. We also have a new executive chef starting just before Christmas and we believe he will make a big impact.

We would love to welcome you back to Kunduchi Beach Resort. Please contact me directly with your next visit. Contact details are gm@kunduchi.com and contact number is +255 688 915 345

stayed at Kunduchi as part of the LOCS conference. I was blown away by the super fast check-in, nice and clean rooms, proper air conditioning and to my surprise....no obscene hidden charges on the bill, I am very picky on cleanliness and hygiene and i could not fault it. Excellent personalised service was the highlight of this hotel, staff is highly professional and friendly - no exceptions in our experience!. Every request we had - room service, recommendations, reservations, etc. - was quickly and thoroughly met. The live entertainment and beach dinner were a bastion of Tanzanian culture, representing the vibrancy, allure and tranquilitiy of this beautiful city. Our conference was definately one to remember. See you again in February I ambringing my family for some R&R. - Levy Baldwin,

What a lovely hotel, friendly staff, makes such a difference, the general manager Riaan Tiard goes out of his way, for his visitors, this kind of treatment is not found everyday and everywhere. We stayed at the Kunduchi over a weekend on a business trip, so spent some time at the superb beach. The rooms, are of the best, quality for money. The food was good, we need not go and eat elsewhere. I believe the hotel is busy with an upgrade, which I'm sure will take Kunduchi even one step higher. This hotel is by far the best in Dar Es Salaam. We would recommend it at any time, and will for sure go there in the near future again. With such service and friendliness, why would one go elsewhere. Thank you Riaan and staff for a memorible trip. . . .

Dear Estelle

Many thanks for the positive review. We appreciate the feedback. The TEAM at Kunduchi Beach Resort is aiming for the next level of service.

Kunduchi Beach Resort is even a better place for leisure. The beach is lovely and there are various small islands to visit. Water temperature is pleasant and ideal for snorkeling. We have started with minor renovations. The bigger tasks we will address early next year.

I will share your comments with the rest of the TEAM.

Kind regards

As part of about 100 delegates around the world, we visited Kunduchi for three days. The views and service were spectacular! Clean rooms, well airconditioned and always friendly staff made the stay a memorable one. We also need to mention Riaan Thiard, the General Manager. He is an example to his staff and treats them with great dignity and respect. It is therefore of no surprise that the service remained great despite Riaan's presence or not. Keep up the great work Riaan and team.

You will see us again in future.....
