Really nice beach hotel with great food, excellent service, luxurious rooms, and offcourse the beach - which is beautiful. I didn't wear my shoes for the entire stay, you make your way trough the sand.

The hotel is located right on the beach. Excellent for spending the day lazing about and walking along the beach front during low tide. The villa was beautiful and so comfortable with a small private swimming pool. The food was average with little options.

We had heard that the biggest and apparently only beach party in zanzi is held here so we followed the hype. We were charged 13 usd each for entrance. Pros; good music, friendly atmosphere, spacious venue. Cons; pathetic waiter service for both drinks and food with what seemed like a 1 waiter to 500 people ratio. Queuing for a drink...

Kendwa Rocks beach hotel was an amazing experience. If you are looking to get away from busy city life and enjoy white beaches and crystal clear waters, you need to try the north western side of Zanzibar Island. Noubi, the Guest relations manager took great care of us with his friendly and personal charm, being very informative and letting us...

I wanted to give it a higher rating because I do see the potential of the place: nice beach, some very nice staff, cool beach facility (sun chairs and beds). However, with so many other flaws things just did not work out. It is loud. Almost every night either from their own restaurant on Friday and Saturday or from the...

We are a young couple in our twenties and stayed at Kendwa Rocks(KR) for four nights over Christmas at the Gujarat room (with sea view). The first visual impression of our room, the beach, and the restaurant was quite positive but it later turned out to be pretty disappointing. Pros: - Room and facilities look nice and clean - Beach...
