White Sand Hotel



White Sands Kendwa is a laid-back beach hotel with splendid surroundings, where our friendly staff will do everything they can to ensure that your holiday is not only delightful, but also very special and memorable.

Our White Sands hotel based in Kendwa – North coast of Zanzibar offers you a delightful accommodation on the promising stretch of the white sand.

You will find that rooms at White sands are spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully decorated with a creative eye for detail that make them decidedly user friendly.

Once you have unpacked, though it is impossible to resist the allure of the beach, one of the, or even “the loveliest” on Zanzibar. Sheltered from easterly winds with clean white sands and clean turquoise waters, swimming here is a joy at all times. At midday, relax in a hammock beneath the shade of lacy tamarisk trees. In the evening, beach-comb for jewels from the sea – scarlet starfish, red corals and delicate pastel shells. If snorkeling or diving takes your fancy, a trip by dhow, a traditional Zanzibarian boat, to nearby Mnemba reef can be easily arranged. The ride itself is worthwhile, giving you great views of the northern peninsula. Alternatively, join in a late afternoon game of beach volleyball with the local boys who will be delighted to have you on the team, even if you are the world’s worst player.

At sunset enjoy a refreshing drink from the bar while you choose from a mouth watering selection of local dishes. We can highly recommend White Sand’s lobster – the best.

In low season, when the only footprints in the sands may be your own, it is even possible to take over the kitchen and cook up your favorite meal using local ingredients. Lovers of Italian food will be delighted to hear that pasta is almost available.

If all this does not lull you into a state of blissful tranquility, the unique atmosphere at White sands certainly will. Few other destinations on the island offer you such truly laid back feeling combined with friendly service that is both excellent and unintrusive.

Thanks to sensitive management, it is a rare and winning formula that guarantees you a great time. Be warned, you will want to return!!
