The hotel is very well maintained and clean. The staff is very polite. I had the pleasure of attending the wedding on the hotel beach. Everything was well organized and the food, especially the seafood, was very tasty. Many thanks to Aied, Ahmed and Nestory who looked after every detail of our stay.

An amazing scenery, clean and comfortable accommodation, delicious food (especially seafood prepared for our group on the wedding day!), helpful and polite crew - all together make me feel it was a perfect stay. The hotel gives a great opportunity to relax fully the way that appeals to you the most. There is a possibility to make your holiday more active - aqua aerobics and gym are available for free or the other option - you can just grab a drink and lay by the ocean whole 7 days as we did;) What deserves particular praise is already mentioned staff - Aied, Ahmed and Nestory made every effort to change my brother's wedding and the whole stay into an unforgettable memory. You have my recommendation!

We had amazing two weeks of holidays at Kiwengwa Beach Resort! The service, food, rooms, views, beach are excellent. The staff is super friendly, kind and helpful and always takes care of every detail. Me and my wife had the wedding ceremony and the wedding party on the beach of the hotel and all the managers did their best to create the special atmosphere and to make that day unforgettable! I would especially like to thank Aied - The Head Manager for making all our requests possible to be fulfilled! Ahmed - The Front Desk Manager for conducting smoothly the accommodation for such a big group (67 people) in the middle of the night and providing us with great rooms! Nestory - for his kind attitude and taking care that we feel comfortable every day cheering us with "Jambo!" Twaha - Beach Restaurant Manager for helping to organize wonderful wedding dinner You guys are amazing and I really do hope to meet you again some day! Hakuna Matata! Greetings from Poland, Paweł

Nice and clean hotel with pleasant staff and a nice beach. Average food and drinks. And we had a very terrible room which spoiled the whole good impression. The room was dark, uncomfortable, and had a very bad smell (it stuck to all the things). It was very unpleasant to go back there and go to bed at night. There were ants living in the bathroom, which stuck everywhere on our toiletries. We had a problem with wifi, for which we paid extra.

We were welcomed at Kiwengwa with a welcoming drink. This place is definitely beautiful with loads of swimming pools to choose from. We obviously loved the Jacuzzis which they fill each time with new water after someone used it. The food was also a wide variety to choose from. The resort gives loads of intertainment during the day that was nice.

We attended a wedding at the beach of Kiwengwa Beach Resort. Thank you very much. It was an unforgettable experience. All the hotel staff were very helpful, nice and polite, although it was not an easy task. 66 people participated in the event, and everything took place on the beach. The dinner prepared especially for us was delicious. Special thanks to the managers Aied, Ahmed and Nestory who took care of every detail. In total, we spent 2 weeks at Kiwegwa Beach Resort and we are very pleased. From cleaning staff, rangers, gardeners, restaurant staff, animators, bartenders to receptionists and management, they all made us feel safe and comfortable. In addition, the hotel has three swimming pools and of course the beautiful wide beach which is cleaned daily and available sunbeds at a hand. Nor did you ever wait in any of the three bars to get a drink, even in the evening hours. Special thanks go to Mr. Nestory - the restaurant manager, who greeted the guests at the meal each time and was always smiling and fulfilled additional our requests. To sum up: I've been to Africa several times, including Zanzibar, but Kiwengwa Beach Resort is by far the best hotel with the best cuisine and service. I would highly recommend. Slawomir from Poland

First and foremost its the wonderful staff! They are doing above and beyond to make your stay the best possible. Service is great. Location is excellent, beautiful beach. Rooms are big and comfortable and clean, though can be maintained bit better in terms of wear and tear. Food variety is wide and rich and food staff is amazing! The staff of the hotel is always welcoming, smiling, trying to make you fell welcome and assist in every possible way. They upgraded my room to presidential Suite and were very attentive. Pool and fun activities are very nice. Bottom line - very good place that is primarily the staff that makes it the high score I gave them.
