Kizikula

Hotel in Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, 1.3 mi from The Residence Zanzibar Beach, Kizikula features accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, an outdoor swimming pool and a bar. Location is exceptional. facilities are way above standard. Many activities nearby (paddle boarding, nature, walking around the coral accessed by a secret cave tunnel, ocean safari excursions, masseuse...) The best highlights are the quality of the food and drinks, everything sourced locally and sustainably (lemongrass, ginger, bananas, papaya, aubergines, chillies all found on site) and finally the tranquility thanks to the unique architecture and landscaping. This place is just on another level on all fronts and truly putting Zanzibar on the map for overall quality and hospitality. Kizikula is a complete sensory adventure!

The view is just gorgeous! Don't miss out a rooftop terrace for 360 view. Special thank you to Passion Boutique team for beautiful and fun Birthday Surprise. The hotel is located in quite Jambiani village, but it is just 5km enjoyable beach walk to busy Paje beach.

SeVi Boutique Hotel

Hotel in Kigomani

Overlooking white-sand beaches and the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean, SeVi Boutique Hotel is located at the north-east coast of Zanzibar, by the fishing village of Kigomani. The hotel was beautiful. I highly recommend bungalow 9. It’s on the end and private. The staff were extremely accommodating friendly and helpful, they called you by your first name. The manager was around making sure everyone was ok, as if we were old friends. Pleasure getting to know him. The beach was a highlight for me. You get to witness the locals going about their day on the beach. I recommend to book mneba atol snorkeling trip - it was well worth the money. The food excellent excellent. Not local prices, but extremely delicious! Octopus and sauces and little nibbles for starters. It’s such an experience. I stayed in many places across the island and would come back definitely for the service, atmosphere and place. Highly recommend it!
