Spent a week here. The place is wonderful, beautiful views and spectacular beach but most important the staff always greets you with a smile and ready to assist you with whatever one needs. I was looking for a place to unwind and relax from the stress of everyday life and definitely found it here.
The lodge feel really puts you in a relaxing mood and helps you blend in the culture and surrounding will return

I've lived in Zanzibar for over a year, and Kichanga Lodge is one of the best discoveries I've made here - probably the most beautiful beach too, secluded and quiet so you can really relax and enjoy the sound of the wind in the palm trees. The food was amazing, and there's free tea and cake on the beach in the afternoon. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the beautiful views and kanga-covered cushions make the bar a perfect place to chill out in the evening. The hotel also contributes to the local community through the Kichanga foundation, which helps provide more education and opportunities for children in the village. Definitely recommended!

Staff very pleasant and helpful, food- average. Acommodation-clean, basic but in my case, the only bungalow with 20 steep steps up to it! That, combined with the steps to and from the beach led to me averaging 360 steps (up & down} per day! Very remote and tours organized by hotel veery expensive. No snorkeling from the beach, but some huge rollers so be careful. Met some interesting people and even, courtesy of the staff, a few words of Swahili.An experience!

Room Tip: Dont believe the blurbs on web sites about Kichanga!

A really lovely location for beach and privacy. Staff are really friendly and helpful so absolutely no complaints there.Bungalow was nice, but a bit basic for the price we thought. Soft drinks very expensive and you are miles from anywhere so captive market. Bad show in the fact that water is provided on the day you arrive, but after that you have to buy it just to clean your teeth - for the money we thought that was really out of order at $2 a bottle. Apart from that, it really was a lovely location to stay but they do like you to go to bed by about 10 and you are encouraged to sign your tab and stop drinking as soon as possible after dinner. Its 1hr 15mins from Stonetown and a taxi is about $90 dollars return so you need to budget for nights out. The nearby Rock restaurant is superb though and worth a visit. All in all, a lovely place, nice staff but a couple of areas could be improved. I would go back.

Room Tip: Ocean views are mostly lovely but be warned, the view is obscured by trees in the main.
