We spent a week at Kisiwa, including New Year’s. The rooms are elegant, clean and comfortable, the staff is so friendly and helpful and the food was good. The New Year’s Eve party on the beach was incredible, the buffet was huge, everything delicious! We ushered in 2022 dancing to Swahili music on the beach, with other guests and staff, it was absolutely amazing! The beach is fantastic, and if you’re a kite surfing fan, there’s a school right next to the resort. It was our third time in Zanzibar and Kisiwa was by far our best experience. Amazing place, with amazing staff. Asante Sana Kisiwa, we will return.

We had 2 wonderful nights at Kisiwa. We very pleased with immaculately clean spacious room which had been tidyed every morning and anti-mosquito prepared in the evening. Astonishing well-cared territory with blooming bushes, singing bids. Very professional staff, with smile wishing you Hakuna Matata. Delicious meals for breakfast and dinner. The hotel is situated at some distance from center of Paje so it is very quiet and relaxing. The hotel's beach is clean and there are not urchins. Low tides only add some interesting notes to rest at this nice hotel.
