We arrived in Nungwi totally exhausted from a long and hot dala-dala journey from the south and Union Bungalows was the first place we looked at. It's a shame that we didn't have more energy to look around, because staying there was not a very pleasant experience. The room was super basic, a bed and a toilet with a noisy... More

The place has a really good location. It's a less than a minute walk to the beach. I got my room for 30000 TSH. It has one huge bed, a ceiling fan, a huge bathroom and breakfast in the porch. Near this place are good restaurants- local and foreign, which can be located by the beach or behind the place... More

I was in Zanzibar on a quick weekend escape from Dar by myself so I hadn't booked ahead. I found Union Bungalows via the bus driver I took from Stone Town so no doubt I set myself up to pay his commission also. The price of the room started at $40 and I managed to get it down to 40000Tsh..was... More

Stayed at the Union Beach Bungalows and it was wonderful! Had a room on the beach within earshot of the ocean waves. The room had mosquito nets, a ceiling fan and was quaint, clean and spacious with a small porch to sit and enjoy the scenery. The cost includes breakfast which consisted of fresh seasonal fruit, coffee and a cooked... More

It was ok but the room I had was right on the beach (shouldn't complain) open the door and hey it's right in fron of you. however because of that I didn't feel secure. There were guys hanging around a stone throw away all day and people can see in every time you open the door. Maybe the other rooms... More

I stayed at the union beach bungalow to escape the hustle and bustle of Stonetown. I wasn't looking for anything extravagant, just a clean place that I can lay my head down for a night as I only planned on relaxing by the beach. Upon initial inspection all appeared well with two single beds, mosquito nets, air conditioning, and clean... More

This place is zero frills but the price is right and , moreso, I havent found a place that is truly that much beachfront. If you get the rooms right upfront you are very close to the water. No long treks or impeded views. Isn't much to entertain yourself here so as long as you are comfy with walks and... More

Very quiet resort, probably not ideal for families with young children as there is not much entertainment for them and not ideal for party chasers either. Nice food at the restaurant and other places to eat a short walk down the beach. Decent sized rooms, not luxurious to any stretch of the imagination, but by far nice enough for a... More

I stayed two nights with two friends at Union Beach Bungalow. We hadn't booked anything in Nungwi, and as we were budget travellers, we chose Union for its good price ($45 per night). But we soon started to regret we hadn't spent a bit more on a better place, because the room was far from decent standards. There were two... More
