I booked a bungalow with a private pool and never got to use the pool because it was filthy… all sorts of dead insects. Requested twice for the pool to be cleaned and it was never cleaned. We were 2 people in my room but for some reason, house keeping only replaced one set of towels, we had to call a few times to request towels. The hot water in our room wasn’t working properly for the entire 5 nights that we stayed. The bar man at the hotel pool bar doesn’t use gloves when he is making drinks. I politely requested that he used gloves and he was quite rude in response… The bar was swarmed with flies and bees. Wouldn’t be the case if it was cleaned properly. The breakfast selection is not the best, the same food items are served every single day with little to no variation. The waiters at breakfast are also not so efficient as you have to make a simple request twice before you are attended to. I found it particularly odd that on the morning of our departure, the response to our request for late check out was a demand for the payment for the room charges (mini bar, drinks etc.)… typically, all charges are cleared during check out. We requested a porter to assist with moving our bags for check out and it took over 20 minutes of us calling repeatedly to get one over. we visit a new country for my birthday every year and this was the first hotel I’m staying in that made 0 effort to make the stay or the day special. No minimal gesture… not even a card or a simple birthday wish. A friend of mine informed me that she called the hotel to book a surprise gift and spa session for me but got frustrated because she was getting passed on to different departments for over half an hour. She gave up. Absolutely would not recommend for luxury travelers. You’d be frustrated. this experience was disappointing and most definitely falls short of 5 stars. More like 3 stars. Will do a more thorough review with videos and pics on my social media.

Staying at Kwanza was a dream come true. It is exactly as advertised, if not better. The most important aspect of our stay was the staff at Kwanza. They were warm and welcoming, making us feel like we had known them in another life. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable, with special thanks to Lucas, Haruna, Ahmed, and the staff in the main dining area. The pool was well-maintained and provided a great place to relax, although the all-inclusive drinks menu could be improved significantly. However, the staff used their initiative to provide us with non-alcoholic drinks that we enjoyed. Our room was very spacious, and the swim-up feature added an extra touch of luxury to our experience. While our first room needed a deep clean and the jacuzzi hadn't been cleaned, the staff promptly addressed our concerns and upgraded us to a room that met our standards. As a five-star resort, there are areas that need improvement, especially given that it has only been open for a year. Nonetheless, our overall experience was fantastic, and we look forward to seeing how Kwanza continues to evolve.

I had an amazing experience at this luxury resort in Zenzibire. The service was exceptional, and the facilities—including activities and night shows—were top-notch. They offer a variety of dining options, including shisha, Japanese, African, and international cuisine, with prices starting at approximately $40 per person. While the food's taste didn't entirely meet my expectations, the warmth and authenticity of the staff more than made up for it. Just a friendly reminder: don't forget to leave a tip 😉. Also, be aware that taxes are applicable.

Dreams do come true, that was my first impression of Kwanza Resort. The stay was nothing short of amazing, hospitality, cleanliness, and attention to deatils are just some of the stuff to mention. The reviews do not do this place justice and if I were ever to book a holiday destination again this would be my top pick. A special thanks to the staff who accomdated every request we had.

We booked and paid for an all inclusive package. The waiters questioned us about the type of package we had claiming that the Bracelet we were given at the reception upon arrival wasn't the one for the all inclusive option. During the whole stay we felt like begging for services and constantly had to call room service or the front desk to no avail. So much so that we had to walk to the front desk ourselves many times. Unfortunately, the lack of respect for us as customers and for our time, was just very disappointing. For the price and the experience people expect when spending and taking the time to come to a resort, the quality of the service was very poor to say the least.
