We can honestly say that we enjoyed our stay at Casa Umoja. The bungalow we stayed at was huge, clean and had everything that we needed for a relaxed stay. The location is good. It is close to the beach and just far enough from the party-areas so that you don't have any troubles sleeping cause of the sound. Three... More

Casa Umoja is really cheap for Nungwi and I enjoyed my stay. You shouldn't have too high expectations though. You'll be disappointed. The rooms are huge but a bit dark. The beds are massive and the rooms have fans. No air con. No wireless. I wish they had at least a deal with the neighbouring Flametree Cottages or so. You... More

This place is cool because it's a lot like being in a real african home, except much more luxurious (for Africa, that is). The grounds are nice with a garden like atmosphere and there's a fire pit area for people to chill out around. PRO: good beds large baths good fans great staff quiet kitchen available CON: no a/c not... More

Stayed at Casa Umoja in January and loved it from the moment we arrived. Relaxed, clean, quiet, good value and a stones throw away from the beach, perfect! The manager Mansoor was really helpful and looked after us brilliantly, the breakfasts were delicious especially the freshly made fruit juices- which where different every morning depending on the fresh fruit available....

My wife and I stayed at Casa Umoja for 2 nights at the end of July and had friends in 2 other rooms. We dealt with Simona(owner) and she was fantastic. The price charged could be much higher but thankfully it is not. Our room was large and clean with tonnes of space to hang your clothes. The grounds were... More

We stayed at Casa Umoja in low season and found it was certainly much cheaper than almost all other accommodation in Nungwi and of a good standard. The people there are all very friendly and willing to help you out with anything and you can arrange tours at a good price through the guest house. The only criticisms were that... More

I have stayed at Casa Umoja twice now, in 2010 and in 2011 and we have truly enjoyed it. The owner is very friendly. He looks after us as if we were his relatives. The location is brilliant and it is good value for money as Nungwi is generally quite expensive. We will be back again for sure.

Casa Umoja is a small, quiet and friendly place to stay at. Mustafa and his staff are doing a great job. Mustafa was very welcoming. He arranged for a cab to come and pick us up at the airport. He also took all of us out (6 people) so that we could go and watch dolphins. When we came home... More
