Konokono in Kiswahili means snail. Just as a snail shell shelters and pampers its contents, so does the Konokono Beach Resort with its guests. Upon entering its relaxing and peaceful environments, you will experience a welcome second to none.
Konokono Beach Resort is a newly refurbished Beach resort located on the Michamvi Peninsula, on the South East Coast of Zanzibar – one of the most authentic and secluded places on the island – and overlooks the wonderful Chwaka Bay.
Konokono’s 26 villas are nestled discreetly in 5 hectares of lush, natural surroundings, and were designed to make their guests enjoy a peaceful experience. There are four types of villas: Sea view villas, Garden view villas, Family villas and stunning Beach Pavilion Villas. Beside the private garden with plunge pool, each villa boasts an array of amenities such as air conditioning, LCD TV, mini bar, coffee and tea facilities and private safe.
The Garden view villas offer the luxury of a unique location and the privacy of your own private patio, which is ideal for immersing oneself in the serenity of the lush Konokono gardens. Each villa covers an area of 135 m2 with a 50‐m2 external patio, king‐size bed or twin beds and a garden with plunge pool.
The brand new Beach pavilions are located on the beautiful white beach. Each of the pavilions covers an area of 60 sqm (a 40sqm interior and a 20sqm patio) with amazing beach and sea view and a king‐size bed, and to ensure you enjoy the picturesque, romantic sunsets there is a covered patio with a private plunge pool.
The four Sea view villas overlook the beautiful Chwaka Bay.
