Absolutely Fantastic!
If there was one thing we were forced to say bad about Kichanga, the only thing we could come up with is that the staff was TOO friendly. Everything about the lodge was great. The food was some of the best we had on our whole trip in Tanzania (we even liked it better than the famed The Rock down the coast). The best being the tomato chipati at breakfast, and pretty much everything from the grill at dinner. The staff was truly great, whether attentive and friendly bar staff, house keeping that left towel animals in the room, and the desk/concierge who were more than happy to help plan any activities. We still don't really believe the views and the beaches, which you can soak up on your lodge patio, the pool, beach bar, kayak rental, or loft in the main lodge. The lodge is perfectly located if you want to get away or visit the coastal attractions (scuba, beech walking), but less conveniently if you want to go to Stone Town, so keep in mind when booking.

Great Place, Great Staff....
This is a great place to stay if you are heading to the east coast of Zanzibar. The staff and management were wonderful and really made the trip for us...we can't say enough kind things about them. The room was great and exactly what you'd want for a African getaway, but with the amazing beach you probably won't spend time there other than to sleep! We would definitely recommend Kichanga and make sure you visit The Rock for drinks or dinner!

Solid, high quality service and quiet environment
I enjoyed my stay. There was a private feeling to the beach, and nice touches in the service, like a complementary ginger or lemon juice on the beach every now and then, that just came out of the blue. Excellent quality buffet breakfasts and dinners. I recommend this place for families, couples and friends who are looking for a quiet stay in Zanzibar. Friendly professional service. Bed mattress quality was my only, minor, complaint.

Best beach in Zanzibar, but not the accommodation
It was by far the best beach in Zanzibar I have seen. The staff were very friendly. The terrace and the view from the bungalow was absolutely stunning, the sofa and the hammock on the terrace were really nice. I loved how calm the place was, how private, both the bungalow and the beach. The terrace is great for doing pilates and yoga. I'm really sorry to say that but the truth really was that I couldn't sleep the 2 nights I spent there, the mattress was the weirdest thing I've been on, it was like a mud hole that sucks you in the middle. Whilst you try to sleep you always roll to that hole in the middle of the mattress, it was soooo uncomfortable and I had massive back pain both days despite doing yoga and pilates every morning and evening. I actually slept on the beach during the day because I was so so tired, the sun loungers were very comfortable and I was thinking sleeping on them during the night… The bathroom was not clean at all, very mouldy and full with limestone and dirt both the sink and the shower with a very weird smell, I actually went to the ocean to take a bath because the bathroom was too disgusting. The food was also not tasty at all, both the breakfast and dinner, not even the fruit, I was hungry for lunch as well whereas with all other accommodations in Zanzibar I was totally fine with half board. If they'd clean or refurbish the bathroom, get a new mattress and cook better food, it'd deserve 5 stars. I stayed at 5 different hotels during my trip
