“heaven on earth”
Reviewed 1 July 2010

omg, have you ever been on an idyllic, heavenly, ethereal vacation? well, you haven't until you've been to kono kono (which means "snail" in kiswahili). life is relaxed and wonderful from the moment you arrive at the resort. the sand is not a white sand beach, it is a white powder beach! the service was amazing and attentive, the beach villas are enormous- much bigger than most nyc flats (like mine), the shower is hot and strong- the water pressure is amazing. each villa has it's own outdoor soaking tub and wading pool!
dinner is served via candlelight on the beach, and we were lucky enough to be there during a full moon, so we ate and drank by moonlight.

If it's relaxation and chill-out time that you're craving,be it with a partner or family with children,this is the ideal spot!The hotel is actually hidden ,surrounded by trees which I found contributed to it's serenity.
The quiet there is broken by the chirping of birds,and the air is always filled with the delicious lemongrass fragrance,planted everywhere in the endless gardens.
First thing you notice when you enter the villa is the space and absolute elegance.There's an indoor pool and a patio overlooking the ocean,perfect place for breakfast.
I believe the beach is the most beautiful that I have ever seen.Better than Mauldives,I dare say.It stretches as far as the eye can see,the sand so white and so fine,the water an inviting blue.
Nothing beats having a cocktail while watching the most amazing sunset at the beach,except,of course the dinner....Tables were set at a descreet distance from each other-so privacy's guaranteed-still at the beach,where we had a delicious dinner,listening to the soothing sound of waves and dreamily gazing up at the star-filled sky.
You never really get tired of the nature and beauty there that's why I'd go back there again and again and again....
