My family is still basking in the glow of our safari and beach holiday to Tanzania! The trip ended with amazing family times at the Ras Nungwi. I had stayed here in 2001 with my 70 year old mother and it was one of her best memories of Africa. This time I was with my own little family of three... More

We were at the Ras Nungwi Beach hotel and I can't say enough good things about it. The management and staff were attentive and friendly - service was outstanding and everyone did everything possible to make our stay an amazing experience. The rooms are clean and welcoming, the public areas are so very comfortable and there are so many little... More

Rooms (Type: de luxe Chalet, sea view) very comfortable, nice sea view and only a short walk to Restaurant, beach, beach bar, etc, fantastic clean beach with stunning Shells, but because of the sea urchins bathing shoes necessary, enormous surf at high Tide, beach bar with Robinson Crusoe freeling, delicious meals in the Restaurant, friendlich staff.

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
