The property itself was beautiful and clean. The staff was very kind and helpfull whenever we had any request. There are many possibilities for trips. There is a variety for food and drinks. ATTENTION. If you book fullboard the drinks like soft drinks, water and cocktails are not included. Still everyday they provide a bottle of water. If you visit the beach there are many beach boys which try to sell you Accessoires and Trips. Nevertheless you have your own area on the beach which they cannot enter infront of the Hotel.

Communication was not the greatest with staff which made my stay a bit stressful. Cute property if you’re traveling solo, coupleor small family. Wouldnt recommend for groups. Amenities are limited. And the food is subpar. Luckily there are other food options in the area.

8/10 Very good

Very small boutique resort in Kiwengwa which has direct access to the beach. The staff and service is exceptional and the dining and food was very delicious. The room is very rustic yet comfortable however it comes with minimal and basic amenities. My wife had two massages in the spa which were very relaxing. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a hotel in North East Zanzibar. The only minor hiccup was that I had purchased Half Board however, there was a miscommunication between Expedia and the Hotel and this issue was promptly resolved.
