Overall excellent. A lovely setting on one of the best beaches I have ever been to. The sand is like walking in powder. The individual villas are to a high standard and a great place to chill especially with your own plunge pool. We had a garden view which was a hive of activity for the local wildlife including the...

This place is absolutely for couples! The grounds are well manicured and cared for with a very lovely staff, the management works hard to include the locals as part of their hotel team and you can tell they work even harder to educate and help them prosper being a global attraction (the people of Zanzibar deserve to grow and flourish...

My girlfriend and I have just returned from 9 days at Konokono. We had the most amazing stay, the staff were incredible. The beach is beautiful, I thought people who described the sand as "like talcum powder" were nuts but it is actually true, all topped off by the delivery of cold face towels and fresh fruit mid morning. Our...

Dear odmurray81 Thank you for such a lovely review about your stay with us, from the housekeeping staff that straighten the bottles, the mid morning fruit to the monkeys & bushbabies that would visit you in your villa. It is wonderful to hear that you would consider breaking your own rule so that you can visit us a second time!...

We come to this place because it's called paradise and it's true. Viewing is fabulous even from our rooms. Beaches are good. We are very very disappointed about few followings. 1. Biggest problem is communicating with staff. Very little they understand what we have to say. 2. Three of us are vegetarians so we find it very difficult and very...

We loved our visit to the Konokono which we'd booked very last minute for 8 days in the middle of October. From the very first welcome to the last goodbye, we were looked after fabulously. The owners, management and every member of staff were all so friendly and helpful. The food was great with plenty of choice and speciality evenings...
