    I loved the property & had a great time here to the point that I stayed an extra day. The staff was amazing, & I really appreciated their help.

    A relaxing bit of Paradise!

    We absolutely loved this resort, and switched from our previous accommodation so we could join our friends here! From the amazing staff (special shoutout Saeed!) to the great food, this property was gorgeous and 100 percent worth the cost, which was higher than we'd wanted to pay initially. It was so relaxing and safe, with security to make sure we could leave our belongings wherever we wanted as we switched from pool to ocean and back again.

    Easy stay on a nice stretch of beach

    It was a great stay - the resort and beachfront are pretty and clean. We just didn’t realize that there would be lots of music for most of the day bc it is all-inclusive so that wasn’t great but our own fault for not thinking of it. Our 5-year-old loves the beach, ocean and pools. Food was good for everybody.

    T was n heerlijke locatie met meerdere restaurants wat de keuze verhoogt. Personeel was vriendelijk maar t niveau van t Engels was matig. Ook bestellingen van drankjes en zo kon behoorlijk lang duren

    Il Kiwengwa Beach Resort è una struttura favolosa, dalle potenzialità uniche. Personale sempre cortese è disponibile, camere ampie e confortevoli, accesso in spiaggia credo tra i migliori a Kiwengwa ...unica pecca la cucina, non a livello della struttura ed è un vero peccato perché meriterebbe di più! Ci tornerò sicuramente perché la struttura è fantastica
