5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Beautiful location

Beautiful location, fabulous staff, great food. The beach is cut from the Mangrove, so don't expect miles of white sand. But the diving is excellent, and the dive crew, boat and facilities really accommodating and helpful. We came in low season, and had the place to ourselves, which was an extra privilege. The staff went out of their way to make us feel cared for. A wonderful place to stay. Thanks, Kinasi. We will be back. R+S

Amazing place

5/5 Excellent

Awesome hotel and holiday. Lovely staff and place

Great amenities Lovely room Just take some spray for the mosquitos at night. They have good nets and coils but you need a bit more. Great hairdryers in the room - rare in most hotels Hot water You can drink from the tap The view and ambience totally relaxed us. The staff were great

Pros: The relaxing feel they created

Cons: Mosquitos at night There is anything outside the hotel so its about relaxing/reading

Location: We saw and swam with the whale sharks Awesome coral/diving

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Relaxing getaway hotel

The hotel was very good in helping to put a plan together for different activities to make the most of my stay there. Very good hotel, on a quiet and secluded beach with very comfy hammocks!!! Would suggest that fellow travellers go "full-board" as there are not many other food options available.

Kinasi Lodge Undiscovered Jewel On Mafia Island

Magnificent setting on the Indian Ocean. 14 bungalows, dive/snorkeling center, excellent dining room, lovely lounge/bar/library. Great swimming pool and beach. A quiet retreat, especially after dusty, arduous mainland safari. Total relaxation. Grand service. Quiet, quiet, quiet. If you are looking for "action", forget it. If you want comfort, service and relaxation, it's worth every penny.
