Make absolutely no mistake whatsoever... Kendwa is the best beach on the entire island and this resort is the best value by far!! Nungwi Beach which is much much more popular is further North HOWEVER it has a low tide just like most of the island and is overrun with seaweed!

Sunset was an ok hotel on the nice beach in Kendwa. I had an insect problem in my room so had to move to another room, which was under renovation, so they needed to move me once more. Took me two hours to finally get a room. The room was spacious with a beautiful four poster

is there a dive shop availability onsite?
There actually is a dive shop as part of the hotel property, but they were not interested to help me the next day when I visited them because it did not fit into their plans when I was there in March. The hotel directly next door with the shop immediately on the other side of the shared wall also had a dive shop who were much more accommodating/friendlier. I think their pricing was better as well. I recommend the guys next door instead.
