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

Ras Nungwi Hotel is set on a stunning beach...I'd never seen water so blue before. The staff at the hotel are great! If you can get a sea view room it makes all the difference. We stayed there for two nights in April and its wasn't nearly enough time. Will definitely be back soon!

My partner and myself spent 6 nights at Rus Nungwi in early April. We were hoping for a relaxing stay and thats exactly what we got. The scenery surrounding the Resort was something I had never seen before, was pretty special. The service at the resort itself was also fantastic. Every member of staff was pleasant and extremely helpful. They... More

The resort is located at the northern tip of the island, the last one built on the east side. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the main buildings constructed from native wood with thatching on the roofs. We selected an ocean-facing bungalow which enabled us to sit on the porch and watch the tides go in and out, and the... More

A friend and I spent 3 days at Ras Nungwi in March, it was nowhere near long enough! We booked a garden view room but we were upgraded to an ocean view room on arrival. The staff knew us by name from day 1 and ensured we had everything we needed. The small touches made such a big difference. A... More

We stayed at Ras Nungwi in December after an amazing safari in the Selous. After much research on Zanzibar hotels- i was in search of the 'barefoot luxury, small boutique hotel ' we had so enjoyed in madagascar and mozambique, we settled on RN, knowing it didn't really correspond to what we were looking for but then none of the...

My second time at this wonderful beachfront property. It is the ultimate place for relaxation with amazing views of the ever-shifting ocean. The staff is amazing, truly caring and friendly, which makes the service impeccable yet unobtrusive The mosquito net canopied comfortable beds guarantee a good nights rest. I would highly recommend this for a weekend getaway or for honeymooning... More

I'm not usually a big fan of beach-only style hotels, but the Ras Nungwi was the best of its kind I've ever stayed in. Good food, charming staff and a great place to completely relax, which is what we did post-safari in Tanzania and after a day in the hustle and bustle of Stone Town. Perfect place to end the...

A super place, great warmth from the staff and management, plenty of little touches that make you feel like you never want to leave. There is a nice dive center, some kayaks for hire (although apparently all the kayaks were under repair during our stay). I would have liked to see some stand up paddle boards for hire or some...
