Kena Beach Hotel is the epitome of that dream beach utopia, superbly positioned against a backdrop of turquoise waters, silky white beaches, verdant gardens and palm trees. Find yourself in the lap of Indian Ocean Island luxury in one of 35 rooms – 8 suites, 12 luxury suites, 9 villas and 6 deluxe villas.

Oceanfront villas and suites reflect the island lifestyle and standard rooms are the most modern with space for 2 adults and one child and decks with garden views. Deluxe Rooms are in the gardens amongst the birds and flowers with gorgeous couches and outside showers. Huge comfy family rooms comprise two interconnecting rooms with one king and two single beds while the deluxe room with Jacuzzi is magnificent, ideal for dreamy honeymoon couples or guests who are celebrating something special.  Minibars, air conditioning, tea and coffee stations, and quality linens add to your comfort.

Enjoy incredible five-star food and service at Kena amid stunning island-style décor and architecture while the swimming pool beckons and water sports fill your days with activity and energy. Decks spill down on two levels to take in the ocean blue and beach white and forest green. Watch TV, chill in the games room or take a sundowner cruise on a traditional sailing dhow before dinner is served. Massages are a hit at the spa and diving and snorkelling enthral all those brave enough to plunge into the island depths. Jump on board trips to Stone Town, to Fumba and to see how spices are cultivated on a farm.

Superbly set in a beautiful location against a backdrop of turquoise waters, silky white beaches, verdant gardens and palm trees, Kena Beach Hotel is everyone’s idea of a romantic seaside hideaway. This exquisite hotel is situated in the Matemwe village on the northeast coast of the ‘Spice Island’, Zanzibar, just 45 minutes from Stone Town and Abeid Amani Karume International Airport.

Find yourself in the lap of luxury in one of 35 rooms when you choose this hotel in Matwemwe Village and choose between 8 suites, 12 luxury suites, 9 villas, and 6 deluxe villas. The architecture of these lovely villas draws inspiration from the centuries-old Arab dhow sailing vessel, with coconut palm thatched roofs that have the same distinctive triangular shape as the traditional sailing dhow sail. 

Amenities in each villa include air conditioning, minibars and safes. Standard suites offer en-suite showers only and private decks overlooking lush gardens while the luxury suites are more spacious with interleading rooms and more views of oceans and gardens. The free-standing villas are brimming with full en-suite bathrooms and alfresco showers but we recommend the deluxe Jacuzzi suites for the ultimate indulgence which are ideal for honeymoon couples exploring Zanzibar.

The focal point of this stunning hotel in Zanzibar includes a multi-level viewing deck, with sweeping vistas of the ocean and it is here that guests gather to socialise and chill out on varying levels where they can dine in style, alfresco or inside. There is a well-stocked curio shop, a swimming pool, a games room, and a dining area as well as a spacious lounge and bar. 

Don’t wait any longer, book that island holiday at the dreamy Kena Beach Hotel today! Voyage2Africa will design your private safari tour to Ngorongoro Crater or Lake Manyara then the Zanzibar delights in a top bush beach break.
