Bahati Villa, hotel in Kiwengwa

Surrounded by lush vegetation and offering a private beach area, Bahati Villa is located on Kiwengwa beach. The small hotel offers a restaurant and bar and a tour desk.

I was upgraded to a bigger room and I had my own outside seating area. Excellent and plenty of choices of food for breakfast. The restaurant also served delicious lunch and dinner. The location was safe and quiet. Security on property. Friendly owners and staff. The back up generator really helped when the whole Zanzibar lost power for several hours.

    Kiwengwa is a perfect place to spend time with the family.

    Kiwengwa is a perfect place to spend time with the family. Exquisit nature, kind people and the best food. Boat trips, beach activities, village strolls, getting to know the culture of local people who are very knowlegeable about the natural agriculture and extreemly kind and nice. We loved every minute of our stay at Kiwengwa.

    I loved the colour, clarity and temperature of the water. The sand was so soft and almost white. I didn't like the hassle on the beach though. It was easier to stay at the hotel to avoid it. But that's not why you visit another country!

    Quiet part of the island with beach among the nicest.

    Quiet part of the island with beach among the nicest. That meant fewer people and tranquility which was what I was looking for during that trip. The hotel was also exactly what I need. All the facilities (gym, massage, sports activities) + excellent food at a reasonable cost. And Fatma the day manager was great. A wonderful person and soul

    The hotel is a true gem. It is on the southern part of Kiwengwa village, which is very calm and has a beautiful beach right in front. The property has a very nice beach area with hammocks, loungers and mattresses where you can hang out at the beach the whole day. The food was exceptional, portion size and taste wise. And not to forget the staff, who were all very kind, attentive and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We fully recommend staying at this hotel in this beautiful hidden gem part of the island.

    Zan View in my opinion is outstanding, because of its management & staff team, its authentic interior design and cleanliness and its location. In Zanzibar people are super friendly in general, friendliness and service-orientation of the whole team was exceptional and far above expectation (am travelling to Zanzibar since 2008). Located on top of a small hill, with stairways down to Kairo village and the hotels private beach stretch,it is a georgeous combination of hotel privacy and local village.

    Front staff in the hotel was really welcoming and helped with all questions we had. The food was on top of the world. Breakfast buffet amazing and more then we expected. The chicken mango sushi was the best one I tried in Zanzibar. Also biriani was good. We had the seafood platter and its was so much food and the enjoyment was on top. We were possible to enjoy food both in the restaurant and also room service in the room. 10/10 Hotel highly recommended. Would love to come back

    Excellent property and Alice from the Zanzibar Houses Office management was very easy to deal with. Suleyman was accessible throughout the stay and Sule (the stay-in security guy) was also respectful of our requests for privacy as a family. Rahmah the cleaning lady was amazing and the property was super clean everyday. Chef was also accommodating of our requests and made some excellent pancakes. If you like sunsets, it is a dream come true! :-)

    Everything was perfect! The rooms were spacious, clean and equipped with everything you could wish for. The breakfast was amazing and included home made cake and fresh fruit everyday. You can feel that every tiny detail was made with love. Everyone working there is beyond friendly and makes you feel right at home. The hotel is located directly at Kiwengwa Beach with lots of great restaurants and watersports opportunities close by.

    We liked that the hotel was very clean and safe, by far the best location we visited in Zanzibar. Our room was very cozy, comfortable bed and nice private patio! The staff is great and very helpful with resort issues and also with organizing transfer! Very good prices for everything and good value. The private beach is well furnished with many swings, perfect to relax and for beautiful photos, especially the swing in the ocean.

    It was one of the best experiances in Zanzibar. The hotel is best for tourists who likes “butik” type hotels. Usually we live in a bigger hotels, so after that experience, we felt so much privacy in every area. No need to fight for the places near the pool, in the beach or restaurant. Very clean rooms. The kindness staff (all speaking English). And the food - we really enjoyed it!

    Very clean and nice European-style hotel, few meters from Kiwengwa Beach, which is by no means one of the best beaches in Zanzibar. The rooms were very comfortable. We had breakfast and dinner included. The food was ok, a bit repetitive - all the same every day- but good. Very nice pool area and private spot on the beach. Stay there some days so you get known with people.

    It is a great place for relaxation. The staff are exceptional, of all the hotels I’ve been at Zanzibar, I never had such a wonderful encounter with the staff. The owner, Virginia, had been very accommodating and considerable. Check out time is 11am but she considered our request to stay until 2pm. Very good buffet breakfast to start the day.

    The Beach, Friendly Staff. Melia Zanzibar is a beautiful resort, however, for the price charged rooms needs to be of a better standard. We have also requested for an airport pickup, which was confirmed bu the hotel. When we arrived no driver was waiting for us in the airport. hotel number wasn’t working!
