Visited for our honeymoon after safari and climbing Mount Meru. Incredible, friendly service, including a free upgrade to a cottage. The room was beautifully decorated when we came in, and the bed was soft and comfortable. The amenities were nice: comfortable lounge spaces, freshwater pool, luxurious massages. The beachfront is not ideal for dedicated beachgoers, though the nearby sandbar was... More

Ras Nungwi was our final stop on our honeymoon and a great place to relax after a few days on safari. The best part of Ras Nungwi is the location, prime on the beautiful blue/green waters of the Indian Ocean, and it truly is incredible. Even better than in all of the photos. Staring into the water all day solves... More

My family and I stayed at the Ras Nungwi for four nights in early December. It is on the northern tip of the island and a bit of a trip to get to from the airport or ferry, but once you are there you have truly arrived in paradise. Their grounds and bungalows are spotless and It never feels crowded.... More

We stayed in a 'Superior Room, Sea View' and it was fantastic. It's a quaint hotel and everyone is very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a party scene this is not the place but perfect for a relaxing getaway. The spa was amazing and I also booked a scuba diving trip. The beach is beautiful but you... More

Food was good. But. The big but is that its not as extraordinary as I expected and as the pricing of the accomodation gave me... More

We spent four days at Ras Nungwi and loved every minute. The facilities are not only beautiful, but the food was fantastic, and the staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. If you're interested in visiting Stone Town or one of the islands famous spice tours, the staff at the front desk can help you set everything up... More

Family orientated boutique hotel with friendly staff and exceptional service. Hotel is refreshingly simple and elegant, blending natural beauty and well laid our grounds in a beautiful location, running onto a quiet private beach with no locals vendors to harass you unlike Nungwi main beach. Rooms are comfortable with Aircons and fans to bring relief from the heat. Food caters... More
