Great food, beach, rooms, 5 days of living in paradise. Resort is realy good, every part of it is authentic, some part is in Arabic style, other in African, etc... Big plus is location, the sea on Kendwa is almost always in the same level.

Kendwa Rocks is one hour drive from Zanzibar Town towards the northern tip of the island. The road descends to one of the most fantastic beaches of East Africa. From the beach you see the lighthouse of More nearby Tumbatu Island. Sunbathing may be enough, but you can also do snorkelling, diving or fishing and enjoy small boat trips on the turquoise waters. Beautiful sunsets are everyday thrill and moonlit nights on the powder white sands and Crystal clear waters beach make for an unforgettable experience. The choice of accomodation is ample: choose a spacious suite or family room, coral stone or palmwood bungalow or just a luxurious Wooden Plank Cabin with a Private Jacuzzi Pool. The rooms are surrounded by coconut trees and lush tropical gardens. Less

Hello, Zanzibar is Islamic cultured. Be sure to pack well dresses if you’ll be visiting Stone Town and other public Areas. Kendwa Rocks is under construction. Don’t expect much this September. Cheers...!!
