After our climb of Kili and frou days of safari (Manyara, Ngorongoro, Tarangire) we took a breather at the Ras Nungwi at the northern tip of Zanzibar's main island. It was the idea way to end our Tanzanian sojourn. The room (close to the water) was modern, clean, and well appointed. The meals were excellent. And the service was remarkably... More

I stayed here July 2015 with a group of 22. There is nothing but positive things to say abut Ras Nungwi. It's a paradise oasis! From the moment you arrive the staff is attentive, friendly and more then accommodating to everyone. The rooms were perfect and the food was excellent- as much lobster as you can eat. The GM makes...

The service provided by the entire staff was evident from check in where guests were provided with cool towels and refreshing juices. The location of the resort is the north tip of Zanzibar. The rooms include a choice of attached rooms in a lodge or private free standing double unit cabanas by the beach. All rooms were impeccably clean. The... More

Food GREAT! We had a seafood BBQ buffet our last night. Setting is gorgeous; our bungalow had a beach view, large comfortable room. Yes - we'd... More

Stayed for 3 nights in June & would have gladly stayed longer. Very relaxing and excellently cared for by staff. All the meals were delicious and beautifully served. I shared a room with my two (adult) daughters and it catered beautifully for all. Lovely, lovely staff.

We arrived June 13 and were informed later they were under some new management at the start of June. It's not working. Staff was poorly trained - one day appetizers and anything on the food menu was included in the 'full board' packaged and the next they charged you, and the manager didn't do anything. The beautiful ocean-side bar closes... More

We extended a safari to the Tanzanian wildlife parks with an excursion to Zanzibar, staying at the Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel. It was the perfect compliment to our safari. The property is immaculate. The service is beyond first class. The food is outstanding. The rooms, (at least the deluxe rooms), are wonderful. You can just relax, or swim in the... More

Ras Nungwi Beach hotel was excellent. The staff was extraordinarily helpful and the food was outstanding. Relaxing by the ocean on the gorgeous grounds of the hotel provided the perfect ending to our honeymoon.

I can't say this falls within our usual budget, but I'm glad we splashed out. This place is fantastic. Beautiful setting on Zanzibar. Quite far from the main town, but not so far that you can't hop in a cab, or do the walk around the beach to get there. No particular reason to leave though, this place is idyllic.... More
