Villa Kiva Boutique Hotel


... is located in the Matemwe area on the northeast coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

Situated in the village of Matemwe, this Italian-owned lodge is centred on a large central building which contains the main public spaces on the ground floor and some suite rooms upstairs.

A further 12 rooms are contained within several one and two storey thatched bandas.

Rather strangely the main restaurant and pool are set at the back of the house, making them feel rather cut off from the ocean.

Villa Kiva Boutique Hotel seems to have grown organically from a single large villa into a small lodge and as a result it feels rather unusual and even dis-jointed. But it appears to be well maintained and operated.

We tend to not recommend it to our guests primarily because it seems to be aimed at a largely Italian market.
