We are staying here after a grueling 18 days safari roughing it in tents. The location is magnificent,with the Indian ocean waves putting us to sleep each night. Rooms are lovely with shutters to let the breeze in or aircon when it gets too hot during the day. Owner Dina is more than helpful and runs a good business employing...

I do not have good words to express my experience. This was our second stay here (first one in February 2012). Hotel and staff are excellent. This it the right place for you, if you do not want to spend your holiday in posh hotel resort with thick walls allaround and with no chance to enjoy real people, real Zanzibar...

This guesthouse is located directly on the beach, on a quiet spot, around 35 minutes walking from the village Paje where you will find a cluster of small hotels. From the airport to Paje take around 50 minutes by taxi. The guesthouse offers a couple of very nice and comfortable rooms and it pays attention to small details. Flowers on...

The house is beautifully situated a few meters from the sea. The room and bathroom were good and it was great to stretch out after being in a little tent for a month. Didn't find the salt water shower a problem but would have appreciated a little cake of soap, some of that lovely spicy soap they sell at the...

A bungalow hotel at the shore of the Indian Ocean, not very big , but the owners and staff do everything for you, Nice food , always decorated with flowers from the bushes in the garden, an extra afternoon-tea-cake when you come back from the shore or the reefes or just from sitting under a palm reading a book.

Almost everything is perfect. The location, the amenities, the service... Dina (the owner) is making everything possible to make you feel like home. Good value for money- you pay pretty much for the food, but the quality is WORTH EVERY USD!!! The beach is beautiful and free from "the beach boys" (google if you don't know this term...). One advise...

Just returned from the most wonderful break at Kilima Kidogo with Dina and her KK team. The house is sublime, with every possible attention to detail from the amazing breakfast (freshly baked bread from Chef Mohammed) to the most glorious and enormous Zanzibarian beds. Utterly lush. The beach with its talcum white powder and crystal clear waters makes for a...

We had an awesome time at Kilima Kidogo. We had a beautiful room and bathroom. The atmosphere was great and relaxing. We ate meals right there and everything we ordered was delicous.
