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. We truly loved EVERY bit of the Kizikula. The stuff is so kind, friendly and taking care of you like a family. The food is amazing - they grow most of the food ingredients on the hotel's grounds. The scene is just so beautiful there and the sunsets breathtaking. The hotel only has 9 rooms, so it is very cosy and private not like big resorts. 110% recommend this place to everyone travelling to Zanzibar (except maybe for families with kids it's not the best option).

COCO REEF ECOLODGE

Hotel in Kizimkazi Beach, Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, less than 0.6 mi from Kizimkazi Mkunguni Beach, COCO REEF ECOLODGE features accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a garden and a private beach area. Me and my partner spent 7 nights in this wonderful lodge, and we can honestly say that it has been our best stay ever! Starting from the hosts, Sandrine and David are amazing people, that will immediately make you feel like you are part of the family. Then, the best staff someone can ask for, Zakario, Amis, Atibu and the others, really do everything possible for your comfort, and they are very friendly and fun! When David took us to the room, I told him that it was "the best room I have ever seen in my life", and it is correct! A large room built in traditional style, with materials from the nature, it doesn't get better than this! The breakfast is amazing, large and very fresh. For lunch and dinner, for the whole week we ate there and we didn't want to change to another restaurant because every day it was freshly made and soo delicious, and we couldn't wait to see what there will be next for dinner. There is not a menu, which makes it even better because they make a different lunch and dinner every day, always with fresh fish, meat, vegetables... And finally the whole place is like a little place of heaven, right next to the beach with amazing views, and completely in the nature. So if you want to relax you can, but also if you want to go to a party and have fun you can also go with them. David and the masai in the night make a fireplace in front of the beach with some music which is also amazing experience. Also, don't forget to ask them for tours, they organize the best tours that you don't want to miss. Unfortunately we can't even express with words how wonderful the staff and this lodge is. We have never felt so sad to leave a place. Everyone should visit this paradise at least once in their life! We can't wait to be back! Thank you for everything, Ema and Martin

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. Sevi Boutique Hotel was my dream come true in terms of the type of hotel that I was looking for (small, boutique, clean, peaceful), in terms of quality of service (highest), views, rooms, nature, everything! My bungalow was huge and comfortable, all fitters with local-style furniture and natural materials. It was begin kept exceptionally clean by the staff which is not at all a rule in all hotels int his part of the world. The general manager, George, is amazingly helpful, understanding and responsive. The staff is really great - helpful, discrete and friendly. Everything in Sevi is stylish, upscale in a classy manner. I loved the views, the garden, fresh flowers everyday, the delicious food. The beach is astonishingly beautiful - I recommend going there to see the sunset and/or sunrise. I would recommend Sevi to anyone looking for this kind of hotel. They will also help you to organise trips, taxis and all you need. Plus the value for money is really fantastic. Hope to come back! ❤️
