My friend and I stayed here and we had a lovely time. We were budget travelling at time so this hotel worked out perfectly as they had a special deal on when we booked. The rooms are decent and there's a nice little pool. It's ten meters from the beach....which is absolutely stunning! Zanzibar beaches are ones I'll never forget!

Nungwi Lodge is attached to the main my blue resort. Is is reasonably priced for what you get. The bungalows are in the back of the main resorts but they are still a stone throw away from everything, including the beach, that is fantastic. The breakfast is 10 USD so I would advice not to buy it on the website... More

The lodge is actually Bungalow on the beach of the Ora Blue hotel - so starting from check-in , through the whole stay including dinning - you get a 5 star vacation. The rooms was huge with good A/C, a huge double bed, mosquito... More

My husband and I stayed here in March for 3 nights. We didn't realize that this was part of the My Blue Ora Resort which is a large Italian resort. We typically like smaller hotels than a big resorts, in all it wasn't too bad. Most people were on the beach so the pool was very nice. The lunch buffet... More

Run down resort - big flashy reception but with little behind the scenes. Uncomfortable sun loungers (with the scatchy beach towels you are given) on a fake, poorly maintained beach above nungwi beach - the only ones with a nice view or sunshine are roped off for particular rooms -odd. Sunbathing on nungwi beach itself is nice but many hawkers.... More

Dear Guest, we paid attention in all words you had written. We cannot believe you are so unsatisfied in all the elements of the stay. We are forced to suppose that perhaps you were wrong to choose this destination. The beach in front of the hotel, that you describe as a shabby one, is the pride of the hotel and... More

We stayed at Nungwi Lodge Ora Resort MyBlue for five nights at the end of our three week trip in Tanzania. Accommodation in Nungwi seemed expensive and we were delighted to be able to book MyBlue for just over 40GBP per night (room only). Our initial decision was whether we should pay the additional amount for breakfast at the resort.... More
