The room designs, furnishings and finishes are eclectic, combining elements of coastal Tanzania, African, Indian and Arab cultures into a historically accurate “Shirazi” style that is unique to Kinasi. All cottages are ensuite with hot solar-heated water and have ample hanging space, a desk and chair, verandah chairs and table, double chaise (for full relaxation), full-length mirror, ceiling fan for cool air and power outlets in the bathroom for hair dryers and electric shavers. The cottages have walk-in mosquito nets that cover the beds completely, and have been designed for through-ventilation and coolness in all seasons.

The most recent development at the Lodge is a beautiful spa, completed with modern ceramics and tilework, fine antiques and an Egyptian theme, celebrating ancient Egypt’s invention of aromatherapy. The spa offers three separate rooms and a range of essential therapies; the facilities include a hot hydrotherapy bath with massaging micro jets, a dedicated massage therapy room with pedicure/manicure facilities, and the magnificent Pharaoh’s Bath for couples. The rooms are air conditioned and outdoor massage is also available overlooking the sea.

Even if you are very active the swimming pool will provide a wonderful focus for cooling off, catching-up on your reading, and chatting.

We have constructed the Pool Bar and Grill here to provide all-day drinks, coffee/tea, lunch and snacks service. You don’t even have to move ! Just snap your fingers and one of our waiters will be by your side.

Often lunch and dinner will be served here, unless the weather makes it impossible. The extended deck of the swimming pool is a superb location for starlight dinners and our seafood barbecues, while the Pool Bar, tucked away under palms, gives shade and coolness for alfresco lunches.


Cuisine is a mixture of European an East Africa cuisine basis on seafood, fresh local produce, grills and home made condiments; Swahili night is a feature each week. Guests from all over the world tell us their visit was a unique experience of East Africa cuisine. Our restaurant take pride in serving the best traditional food from Mafia Island, and you are heartly welcome!

What we offer?
Lunch is served as a buffet at the Pool bar and Grill, with freshly-cooked seafood, chicken or different meats barbecue off the charcoal grill, accompanied by a wide selection of salads and antipasti. Dinner is set in the Dinning Room on a table d’hote basis or as special themed meals. We combine a wide list of meats like lamb, pork, chicken and beefs with freshly-cooked seafood. All served with soups, vegetables and different sauces.


Good food and wine have almost magical way of making us relax and feel good. We believe that there is nothing better for your health than doing Sea activities and meet at dinner for a delicious meal together with a bottle of vintage or a cold local beer.

At Kinasi Lodge we concentrate upon retailing an extensive range of specialist drinks products from whiskies to fruit cocktails and local frinks. We also provide free non alcoholic cold soft drinks service during the excursions.
