Kinasi Lodge is a boutique hotel on Mafia Island, approximately 100 km south of Dar es Salaam. A short ride across the island from the airport and the main town of Kilindoni, the lodge overlooks Chole Bay in Mafia Island Marine Park. This intimate and lovely resort, situated in an old cashew and coconut plantation, provides a luxury stay amidst stylish décor and magnificent natural surroundings of the protected marine park. The swimming pool is surrounded by verdant gardens with sunbeds and alfresco lunchtime seating on the pool terrace.

To add refinement there is a wine cellar with a signature wine list and an outdoor pergola cocktail bar, a spa with expert Thai personnel providing aromatherapy, Thai massage and hydrotherapy and a host of leisure time options for those after-work periods. Everything about this elegant hotel – from design and furnishing to our food & beverage and staff service – is done with a passion for perfection.

In keeping with the intimate nature of this resort, only fifteen rooms are available. Each room is in a private bungalow with thatched roof, large verandah and ensuite bathroom. Personal attention amidst a relaxed atmosphere is the hallmark of Kinasi. The rooms have ceiling fans and mosquito nets and maintain an island paradise atmosphere. Meals are served at the Pool Bar and Grill or in the Main Restaurant a la carte and table d’hote, with local spices, pizzas and barbecues being specialties. Friendly staff, unique cuisine based on local seafood dishes and a welcoming feeling greet the visitor. We are well known for our excellent food and large choice of wines.

Mafia Island Marine Park is a tropical paradise, renowned for its snorkeling, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing. Kinasi has a PADI diving and snorkeling centre, excursion vehicles, mountain bikes, sea kayaks and a variety of other outdoor activities, all excellent for leisure time or team building activities for conference participants. Mafia also offers excellent cultural tours to local villages and excursions to islets, beaches, coastal forests and historical sites.
