About HKM Ltd Co

Born in RDCongo more than 50 years ago , I have been bitten by the african virus since birth . That's explaining why I have been searching for my little piece of paradise overthere , first on the Kenian coast ....till I discovered the absolute beauty of Zanzibar and its people ...

HKM Ltd Co purchased this villa in 2000

Why HKM Ltd Co chose Tanzania

I landed on the island long time before the tourism industry ....and that's why I was able to go for the absolute best spot on the beach of Matemwe ...the golden mile of Zanzibar ....

What makes this villa unique

No mass toursim in Matemwe , a very fine little village with its own fish market , unspoiled immaculate white sandy beach ...friendly people ...no big hotels around ...no aqua gym ... Zanzibar as it was 15 years ago ...just incredible ...

Sea urchins my foot

  • 4 of 5

The whole villa experience was fabulous and has so much more potential, it's churlish to find fault. The chef,maids, gardeners, guards and Nondo are the villas best assets, couple this to an unrivalled location and utopia beckons !

Some furnishings are tired and the pool design is not conducive to swimming or safe access, rubber mating would solve the problem. We made much use of the "speed" boat and 4x4 at our disposal, Nondo being in charge of them both. The only real downer are the sea urchins which abound, making sea swimming impossible.

Pampered relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed with kids for the week and enjoyed every minute. Everyone was helpful accommodating and that started before we arrived. The place is beautiful, you are never sure if places will match the pictures, this does. With the different sitting areas, the pool, the upper beach area and the access to the beach we had a ton of options.

We also took full advantage of the seafood options and Pamela kept us well fed. Our trips out snorkeling and swimming with dolphins were a real treat for adults and kids alike. One day part of the group traveled to town, but the most popular trip was heading a short distance to the turtle lagoon to swim with them. We will definitely return.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truely amazing. The house is wonderful, with a feeling of relaxed luxury. The beach is perfect and quiet, you can walk for an hour, and just meet a few people, greeting you with a happy "Hakuna Matata!" The house is very clean and well-maintained by the great staff. Prior to our arrival Patrick provided us with all the information we needed, -amazing service! When we arrived everything worked out perfectly. Two cars picked us up in the airport and we were warmly welcomed in the house by Melanie the french caretaker and by, Pamela who cooked three wonderful meals for us every day, and Zao, Pendo and Rose Mary who made life so comfortable for all of us. Nondo was a great captain on the boat, giving us the opportunity to go snorkeling and even swimming with dolphins. Nondo also took us to Stone Town, on Spice Safari and to Nungwi for deep water fishing. We loved our vacation and hope to visit Villa Loiki again soon. We will recommend this property to everybody we know!
