Zanzibar Hotels


The island of Unguja (Zanzibar) plays host to hundreds of resorts, lodges, B&B’s, guest houses & boutique hotels. Over the last decade we have visited the vast majority of these properties to bring you a concise and current collection of the best the Island has to offer.


There are large all-singing, all-dancing resorts, intimate lodges, inspirational & artistic boutiques, traditional Zanzibari Villas, Arabian inspired architecture & indeed restored Arabian palaces nestled deep in the heart of Stone Town.


In having such a comprehensive overview of the islands accommodation, we can objectively compare and contrast properties against one another in terms of their price band, comparable value, location, ability to deliver what they promise and their connection with the island’s community.


It is important to us that the spirit of sustainable, ecological & social tourism plays in integral role in the development of new and exciting properties, just as the well-established and most loved jewels of the island already do.


Please enjoy our collection and do not hesitate to call us for assistance in planning and booking your Zanzibari holiday. No international operator knows and loves the island as we do.

For this reason it has created its Conservation Program, aimed at preserving the delicate balance of fauna and flora, which covers more than 40% of the resort’s surface. In Konokono and in the Jozani Forest- Chwaka Bay Conservation Area you can admire many protected species, including the red colobus monkey and the Aders duiker.



Kono Kono - Our Opinion

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly, but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff plus some genuine feedback from our clients below:


"At Kono Kono all the villas are large, very well finished complete with plunge pool and with plenty of space from one room to the next but the real beauty of this place is the beach.

Many resorts / hotels on Zanzibar often claim to have ‘the best beach’ but we have been lucky enough to visit them all and the beach at Kono Kono is a winner, assuming you like your beaches virtually deserted and swimmable all day with sunsets over the sea in the evening. Add to this some spongy white powder sand and a long sweeping wild palm fringed coast and you have the idea. Luckily, thanks to the resorts local connections the whole area has now been designated as a conservation area so nothing else will be built nearby."
