A class act

Posted Jul 19, 2016
Perched tastefully back from a pristine beach, with the finest, porcelain-white sand, there is a minimalist, yet warm charm to Konokono. Individual villas, surrounded by native vegetation and red, pink and white bougainville, offer intimate privacy. Except from inquisitive white-faced monkeys. Every evening offers a different twist. Live music, sunset drinks, Swahili food and entertainment, and on-beach dining compete to claim favourite memory status. With charming, always grinning, local staff and thoughtful, expert international management, this place is a winner.

Perfect honey moon end

Posted Jan 28, 2016
Pros: Perfect beach , great rooms
Cons: Restaurant food was a bit hit and miss but nothing too bad.
Perfect beach holiday and a great end to our honey moon. One of the best hotels to avoid the tide effect ( i.e. it is the least affected on the island)

Stunning location and wonderful experience

Posted Nov 9, 2015
This was just the most perfect beach resort hotel we could have imagined . The location is remote and quiet .. Perfect for a romantic and relaxing break . The resort is elegant and sophisticated with wonderful attention to detail in the unbelievably spacious accommodation . The evening meals were superb and with the restaurant overlooking the pool and beach what a fantastic backdrop. Breakfast fine but un imaginative . The staff were wonderful , attentive helpful and always available to assist . Beach is prone to seaweed at certain tides but the hotel work admirably at cleAring this and at low tide the sea is too shallow to swim in , not a problem since the infinity pool is a delight to spend time in . The location is remote so not a great place for an activity based trip but for a relaxing break in a stunning resort this place is simply perfect.

Perfect Villa

Posted Mar 8, 2015
Pros: The location was simply perfect for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The setting of the Villas alongside the beach was well needed.
Cons: The Food is the only thing that can be improved. More of a variety would be welcome as well as the taste of the food.
Location: Location is perfect for relaxation and a welcome getaway. The Beach is a welcome sight and the Jowzani Forest is not too far.
The Villa was the perfect getaway from a busy London life. The Villa and location provided a relaxing and comfortable holiday. The Villa was cleaned every day and was very comfortable. The staff were always on hand to assist and help.

An Idyll!

Posted Feb 28, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Possibly the internet facility but not being able to easily connect to the outside world could be seen as an advantage.
Location: Picture postcard setting. A variety of tours are easily arranged by the hotel. We enjoyed a trip to Stonetown.
Konokono is a delight. After an interesting journey from the airport where you get a flavour of Zanzibarian life you arrive at the most beautiful setting on a white powder sand beach. The peacefulness of the resort engulfs you immediately. The staff quietly welcome you and orientate you to the hotel and its services. Everything is beyond expectation. The staff have acquired the exceptional skill of being attentive and intuitively anticipative of your needs without being intrusive. Nothing is too much trouble. As well peace and quiet you can canoe, play beach volleyball, walk for miles along the coast and enjoy tasteful entertainment in the evening if you wish. Love it!

Relaxing paradise

Posted Feb 11, 2015
Pros: Rooms are beautiful, extremely clean and comfortable and in the mid of a beautiful garden; all with private pool.
Cons: The sea is not as nice as in other part of the island, but the beach is so beautiful that you will not really care.
if you want to spend some day in full relax, this is the place you want to be. Is perfect size and extremely private; the beach is fantastic, and food is good.

Exclusive resort with dedicated management

Posted Jan 17, 2015
Located in a quiet and isolated part of the island, KonoKono offers a complete relaxation opportunity. The pool and bar area is exclusively designed and the relaxing tunes in the background support an astonishing view from the main deck. Management frequently asks guests about their comfort and seeks to address issues as they arise. The food is excellent and a great effort is made into presenting different food every day to avoid fatigue of visiting the same restaurant. Some staff seemed a bit lost, but there were many excellent colleagues among them and if you work through them you will get top notch service (as good as it gets on the island). Our boys 9 & 11) had lots of fun at the pool and beach although since this is a quiet resort where newly weds also try to romance, we had to keep them a bit calmer compared to a family resort. The beach is a pearl aside from sea weed.

Ruhig gelegenes sauberes Hotel mit großem Strand

Posted Jan 29, 2016
Pros: Ruhige und saubere Anlage.
Cons: Fitnessraum wäre schön.
Location: In der Nähe besucht man den National Forest oder die Butterfly Farm.
Durch die Größe der parkähnlichen Anlagen hat man immer sehr viel Privatsphäre. Das Servicepersonal ist trotzdem überall zu Stelle und aufmerksam. Der wohl sauberste Strand der Küste befindet sich vor dem Hotel und lädt bei Ebbe zu ausgedehnten Spaziergängen ein. Die Villen sehr groß von der Fläche, bieten aber wenig Staumöglichkeit für die Bekleidung. Die Anfahrt vom Flughafen dauert 90 Minuten, wobei die letzten 3 km die schlimmsten sind. Hier ist die Straße in einen fürchterlichen Zustand. Das Essen ist immer Ausgezeichnet und alles wird frisch zubereitet, selbst die Popcorn und Erdnüsse an der Bar.

Relax, silenzioso, pulito

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Struttura stupenda, pulizia impeccabile, personale molto gentile, grandi spazi per una adeguata privacy: 20 camere in tutto. Mia moglie ed io ci siamo innamorati di questo posto. I Branch boys sono affidabili e assolutamente da coinvolgere per le gite e visite. Cucina ottima della chef Elisabeth. Ally il capo del personale super-attento a qualsiasi esigenza. Mare molto bello, ma senza pesce. Per lo snorkelling bisogna muoversi.
