Naturally Crafted Experience – Kichanga Lodge
People visit Zanzibar for many reasons. The beaches, the spices and the culture of the country are all draws. What’s also attractive is the idea of a leisurely holiday. When it comes to best luxury hotel Zanzibar, you don’t have to look too far. Situated on the south-eastern coast is the award-winning property, Kichanga Lodge. The south-east of Zanzibar is famed for its gorgeous stretches of sands and pristine waters. Kichanga takes full advantage of its location to offer guests an unparalleled experience. The Indian Ocean can be seen from every single space and every cottage offers you a view of the water.
Natural and crafted don’t go together, you’d assume. But at Kichanga Lodge, nature is used in beautiful and respectful ways to craft an experience like no other. You can see it in the furniture, fixtures and careful curating that has gone into every single aspect of this unique and breath-taking property. The owners are mindful of the culture of the land and everything in the Lodge is a tribute to the Swahili people and their culture. The furniture is hand-made, created by the local artisans. The fabric is hand-woven by the people too. In fact, every piece of furniture, fabric, every item is designed and then made by hand. This means, no matter where you stay in whichever cottage, you will always have unique one of a kind pieces to admire and revere. The widely travelled owners have brought their cosmopolitan sensibilities to the Lodge, making it a treat for everyone.
Kichanga Lodge has different types of accommodations to choose from – if you’re travelling with your family, the family bungalow is the right choice for you. This is a lovely choice among the private beach houses in Zanzibar. It’s large enough to accommodate everyone and still give you a sense of space and privacy. Family times are together times and with the bungalow you can do just that. If you’re a honeymooning couple, then the honeymoon suite is the right space for you. It’s secluded, comes with the wonderful views the property is reputed for, and offers you space and time to create memories. The Zanzibar beach bungalows are popular too. Each bungalow has a view of the ocean and you can enjoy your time- swim or dive, or just laze in a hammock and read a book. The garden bungalows afford you an expansive view of the large and flourishing garden of the resort. Private villas in Zanzibar are also a good choice – they are two story properties and have stone showers, balconies on both floors and provision for extra beds if required. Each of these living quarters is luxurious, well-appointed, with reading lamps, large beds, coffee and tea options and clean water.
If you’re in a mood to explore, the iconic Stone Town is only 40 minutes away. You can make a trip to the Jozani Forest, explore the spices on a tour or spend time on the beach playing volleyball, scuba diving or kite surfing.
