The hotel is superb, run to a high standard by an Italian manager and his fantastic team. The staff were all very accommodating and so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Housekeeping kept our villa spotless - the standard was so high we never experienced any bugs or mosquitos in the room. The food (also an Italian chef heading the...

My husband and I booked four nights at Kono Kono for our honeymoon as part of our post-safari wind down. When we first arrived we were very impressed with the beautiful beachfront and main area. The pool and restaurant had clearly been very recently renovated and looked well maintained. We were far less impressed with our room and other aspects...

Delightful staff who were outstandingly helpful. Beautiful setting and so peaceful. The beach was absolutely stunning and often we were the only people on the beach or in the sea. Our villa was immaculately kept and the plunge pool was an added luxury.

A wonderfully located, beautifully appointed property. If you are looking for a secluded, simple and modern get away with a stunning white sandy beach and lovely people then consider KonoKono. Every member of staff from the GM down were delightful and took pride in their work. There are a lot of places to stay in Zanzibar and I would like...

The hotel has luxurious spacious rooms complete with plunge pool. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean, as was the plunge pool during our 6 night stay. The hotel itself is excellent with helpful friendly staff. The beach is something else with sand so white and fine and the sea crystal clear and warm as a bath. Whilst there are lots...

The staff is soo helpuf especially Ally the...

Sea view villa looks nice and exactly like the pictures though had some infrastructure problems. Water in the shower area would just not drain. We complained about it, they said they have fixed it but it was exactly the same as before. We left it after that as were not in the mood to spend time getting drainage fixed on...

We arrived at Kono kono for a 10 day holiday. The photos of the resort don't do it justice. The private beach is stunning and the pool is well maintained. The staff are fantastic- couldn't do enough to make our visit lovely and so friendly. They arranged dinner on the beach for us, excursions and taxis back to the airport...

Wonderful location, beautiful place, very good service in general. The only remark we’ve had was to the food quality, which vary, with few failures and to the service in beach bar (50 minutes waiting for the lunch is too long) and main bar (not all the staff is on the same professional level). As soon as they will sort it...
