is located in the Kendwa
area on the northwest coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
It is a very high quality small beach resort set on a very large plot above a beautiful beach. It is of an innovative and stylish design, with elegant public areas, a large swimming pool and just 15 extensive and interesting guest suites. The lodge has reliable owners and is commonly combined with camps from the same stable. There is a decent range of activities in the area including, unusually, the potential for a little bit of night-life.
The main potential downsides at Kilindi Zanzibar are that the resort is expensive, the area is being increasingly encroached upon by other development, it is perhaps not to the level of other world class resorts with which it might be compared, the rooms are quite outdoorsy and there are relatively few facilities. The lodge is too remote for some excursions around the island and the diving is not the strongest on Zanzibar.UpsidesActivitiesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
