Nettes Hotel in schöner abgelegener Umgebung

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Das Hotel hat einen authentischen zambianischen Charakter. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und stets hilfsbereit. Landschaftlich zwar sehr abgelegen aber an wunderschönem Strand. Schwimmen ist nicht einfach wegen der Fluten, kleiner Hotelpool bietet jedoch Alternative. Extras (Getränke, Essen, Ausflüge) fanden wir sehr teuer.

Pros: The staff was incredibly friendly and SO helpful! They truly make sure you're stay is as relaxing as possible!
Location: Do the snorkeling tour - book it at the front desk - it's only $20 USD and it was amazing! Also, go to The Rock for dinner!
A friend and I stayed here for 4 days following a month long study abroad trip to Tanzania. We chose Kichanga based off a recommendation from another friend who had stayed here the previous year after her study abroad. She told us it was a nice place, but it exceeded every expectation we had! First of all, the room was amazing. We had a wonderful (albeit, a little hard) king sized bed, with an amazing bathroom and even a changing room! Everything was provided for us - from the beach towels, to the beach bag, to bottled water everyday. The food was really great. Breakfast and dinner were included with our stay - and how can you go wrong with that. We both usually had the fish dish every night and it was always prepared nicely. They also have yoga, which we scheduled for sunrise. The yoga instructor, Ilse, is amazing! I've never done yoga before and she made sure to explain all the positions and ensure I was doing it properly to not hurt myself. It was a great way to start the day. The service and staff were probably the best I've ever encountered. A few days before we were set to arrive, I received an email asking if I'd like a car service to pick us up from the airport. We also wanted to set up some tours for one of the days, and we went to the front desk and they took care of literally everything - so we were able to do the Spice tour, Stone Town and Prisoner Island all in one day for only $95 USD.

Puro relax nella natura

Posted Mar 21, 2016
Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana in questo lodge. Piccolo e confortevole, personale simpatico e sempre disponibile. L'hotel molto isolato ma in un contesto stupendo dove si può godere il cambiamento della marea con colori e sfumature uniche. Appassionata di fotografia un vero paradiso. Colazione molto buona con succhi freschi e cena servita al tavolo tutto molto curato e buonissimo. Dal bungalow una vista mozzafiato dove si può ammirare l'alba. Consiglio questo lodge per che cerca tranquillità

Vue magnifique sur un lagon bleu

Posted Mar 7, 2016
Pros: Calme, très belle vue, beau jardin, grands et beaux bungalows et personnel agréable.
Cons: Piscine trop petite. Mobilier très sommaire et peu confortable.
Location: Hotel isolé sans possibilité de promenades aux alentours. Aucun village ou autres restaurants à proximité. Snorkeling possible en bateau 40$ /2p.
Vue magnifique sur un lagon aux bleus exeptionnels, hôtel isolé et tranquille, personnel agréable et prévenant. Problème frustrant de baignade car le lagon est très peu profond et la baignade est quasiment impossible même à marée haute. Les fonds sont rocheux et pleins d'oursins. La piscine est propre et bien tenue mais toute petite (environ 10 m de long sur 5 de large). Les bungalows sont très spacieux et munis d'une terrasse agréable mais le mobilier est sommaire et peu confortable. Pas de frigo. Pas de climatisation. Pas de fauteuils ou de transats confortables. Les repas du soir sont peu recherchés. Pas de poisson frais. Les consommations sont relativement chères. 2 dollards pour 1/2 litre d'eau potable.

Beautiful beach and great staff

Posted Jan 1, 2016
Stunning location with a beautiful private beach. We stayed in one of the ocean bungalows, which had a beautiful balcony with a great view. Staff was super nice and accommodating and helped us with a variety of needs, from broken shoes to stomach troubles. Cocktails were delicious, food wasn't amazing but it was pretty good. Highly recommended!

I think it needs to be modernized more and the food portions to be increased. Other than that, every thing was really perfect and I would go there again.

Good with a few quirks

Posted Dec 20, 2015 on Hotels
Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Good quality of food, and a nice and quite environment and location. There is some complimentary food and coffee during the day. Bungalow room layout is a bit odd, there's not enough air circulation, even though windows are on 3 sides. No AirCon, only ceiling and standing fans, but that wasn't such a problem for us. On the first dinner the staff had failed to prepare a Vegetarian meal, although we requested it at lunchtime. They forgot to pass on the info to the late shift. That can happen, but for an expensive place like this it was disappointing. Overall it's a nice place, but if we go to Zanzibar again we might choose a different hotel.
