During my trip to Kenya, I looked into what else I could fit in that might be relatively close to me. I had seen some pictures and heard about Zanzibar from friends so I decided to make this my next adventure. Why not? Beautiful white sand beaches and gorgeous waters were to be found here and I really needed a vacation from my vacation so off to Zanzibar I went.
For my visit, I decided to stay at the Konokono Beach Resort. From what I read, this was a place I could really relax and I was not disappointed. If you want to escape and soak up the sun, this is definitely the place for you. It is not close to anything so you are likely not leaving the resort and for the first time in months, I did not leave the grounds of the hotel I was staying at. Instead, I explored the beach from one end to the other and just relaxed.
The resort itself was nice with plenty of space and privacy to enjoy myself. The food was good and everything was fresh with lots of variety every day. The resort pool was nice and overlooks the beach. My villa also had a plunge pool but I think that was more for looks than anything else because the beach was just too beautiful to not visit. I did a lot of walking at this resort which I really enjoyed. During one of my evening strolls, I was surprised by some Bush Babies – cute little guys that were something between a monkey and a sloth… Each day, I also enjoyed long walks on the beach were I saw lots of crabs scrambling about.
The beach…. This beach had the softest white sand I have ever felt or seen. It was like baking soda or flower – incredibly soft. The water was just as beautiful with gorgeous shades of blue and turquoise colors. Soft breezes blew daily and big white puffy clouds could be found every day and night that just added to the mesmerizing beauty of this place and also made for amazing sunsets. This place was truly a paradise and was so relaxing – Konokono Beach Resort is definitely the place to take a vacation from your vacation. I loved it!
