We stayed at Kisiwa regularly during our time living in Tanzania. As a family with young children and kitesurfing parents the location is perfect. The big pool and direct beach access are unique to Paje. The bungalows are simple and modern, the hotel is very clean and well run. The whole hotel is beautifully designed to get the best of Zanzibar‘s magical combination of turquoise ocean and lush vegetation. The staff is extremely friendly and always made us feel like at home.

It's a shame we didn't have more time there. The ocean view was amazing, the hotel was absolutely beautiful and we had a huge room at a very affordable price. But the thing that makes us want to come back is the staff itself, from the main chef to the receptionist they were all welcoming and friendly to us, we couldn't ask for a softer landing. We fully and whole heartedly recommend kisiwa and would come back. Thank you!

Our stay at Kisiwa was absolutely beautiful and out of this world. We encountered the most welcoming and friendliest staff. The food was exceptional, and every little detail is thoroughly thought out and executed to perfection. I fell in love with the serene setting of the resort, the gorgeous rooms that outlook the white sands and clear waters. It is certainly a place I would revisit, I would be thrilled to experience it once more!
