We stayed here for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. It is a super relaxed place for just hanging out for a while as it's a bit far from anything else. In saying that, you do tend to eat all your meals here. We spent our days in the pool, reading, playing volleyball and walking along the beach at...

we spent 3 nights here and it was absolutely amazing, food is really good, homemade and tasty. Location is very convenient, 25min drive from Paje beach, dolphin swim is just 10min boat ride from the resort. the only bad thing is the running water which is very salty, but you can get used to it:)

Beautifull view, friendly staff. The rooms are typical, decorated. The music was really good, always Reggae music. They are beautiful doggs on the lodge. The restaurant is really typical food, the menu is not very large but enough.

I stayed at a different resort in Kizimkasi but I frequently went to the Promised land for sunset drinks and dinners. The set up is the best in my opinion in Kizimkasi. The bar is right on the cliff with amazing unobstructed sunset views. You can have a drink with your partner or friend and enjoy the sunset view without...

The experience was OK. The room had amazing views, but none the lights of the terrace worked. Also the room in the bathroom as well as in the all the hostel was very limited, which in the night was not pleasant at all. The service was very slow, and it was not easy to communicate with them if something was...

We arrived here after a not so relaxing 2 days in Stone Town and it was just what we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful, and its location is unlike anything I imagined. It is very remote, so nipping out to the shop or for a drink elsewhere isn't really an option, so bear that in mind! Food is...

Its a very relaxed, friendly place and all the staff are welcoming, happy and helpful. Sea views are fantastic and the outside/bar area/pool etc are uncrowded so you dont have to be bothered if you dont want to, but there is the chance to chat if you are feeling sociable. There is wifi at the bar and non stop reggae...

I wanted somewhere beautiful to chill out. This place was perfect. The setting is beautiful with spectacular views. Accommodation is clean, comfortable and best of all authentic. The beach bar, pool and array of beach furniture - loungers, swinging chairs, hammocks all lend themselves to relaxing by a stunning expanse of beautiful blue ocean. The menu is limited but everything...

Down to earth, comfortable and relaxed. I missed this place from the moment our taxi pulled out of the property. Some of the best food we had on the Island came out of their kitchen. Staff are all lovely and the owner has a very hands on approach. They really do make you feel like family. Yes the shower is...
