The Ras Nungwi was our last stop after 2 weeks of safari in Kenya and Tanzania. It was exactly what we needed. Rest, relaxation and ocean views for a week. It was just amazing. We had room 18 which was a waterfront chalet. When the tide was in the waves could splash up onto the steps. The room was huge... More

This beautiful resort is the ideal destination for true relaxation and escapism. My family and I stayed here for 8 days in September and feel we definitely made the right choice. With it being a tidal island I was concerned about the lack of a beach during high tide but the resort has a solution to this with the ingenious... More

Outstanding resort on the northern end of Zanzibar. Beautiful location, excellent staff, and all activities you would expect at a top shelf sea resort. The best we have experienced in our worldwide travels.

We have stayed in this beautiful hotel for the last week of our visit to Africa and I am sure we could not have made better choice. We booked the stay via Expedia and they messed up. On our arrival the reception staff and the manager made every effort to sort things out and treated us to free lunch while... More

I spent a wonderful week with my teenage sons and husband here. The staff were friendly and courteous and very happy to help. Rath, the manager, went out of his way to make us feel at home. The white sands and extraordinary turquoise water was stunningly beautiful and so warm. The boys dived in and out of the waves in... More

This is one of our favourite hotels ever. Ras Nungwi is set in a stunning location, on the northern tip of Zanzibar, with a pristine beach and azure blue sea. The hotel has been beautifully designed, and is peaceful and low-key. The staff is exceptional. We stayed for five days and the rest and relaxation was just what we needed... More

We stayed a week there with our 8 year old son, and the place is absolutely fantastic. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, they do all and more to make you feel home, and not only serving you but greet you and talk to you like friends. I would like to highlight Joseph at the pool, andSamir the chef... More

Ras nungwi is a quiet and relaxing private resort in a stunningly beautiful background of clear ocean views. The staff is amazing, led by the wonderfully nice Bakari and Rath. Rath came to greet the guests everyday at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff at the front desk made sure everyone of our requests was fulfilled; someone even went into... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel! The room was very clean and huge (the bed was over 2 meters wide!). The location right next to the beach is excellent. The breakfast buffet was very good. However, the dinner was not that good and we were a bit disapointed with it... Quite strange dishes that didn't taste much. Also,... More

The setting is drop dead beautiful. The staff are very friendly and very obliging. Nothing that we could have asked for was too much. The GM, Rath was everything that you could ask for. I am not sure when he sleeps, but his smiling face and gentle cheerful manner could be found virtually everywhere at seemingly anytime. I am a... More
