My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Tanzania and started off our Zanzibar trip at the dreadful Mchanga Beach Lodge. After finding the beach filthy and unusable, not being able to sleep due to woodworm eating the ceiling of our room all night and being served a tomato drink with mold in it, we fled to Ras Nungwi...

I have had the fortune of staying at many hotels, but out of all of them this simply tops the list. What really stands out, quite apart from the exquisite setting, is the warmth, care, and friendliness of the management and staff at Ras Nungwi. They embody the phrase, service with a smile. With them you truly feel as though... More

We had an amazing experience at the Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel. Not only is the setting breathtaking with its warm emerald blue ocean and white sands, but the entire staff is attentive, friendly and dedicated to providing the best service. The rooms were always kept in top notch condition, the daily menu selection was delicious and varied, everything about Ras... More

The Ras Nungwi is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. To call it a hotel seems odd, as it has more of a boutique feel, and the rooms are all in separate cabanas spaced throughout the beautifully done gardens. Everything about this hotel is perfection. The beach is beautiful and you can walk a kilometer out,... More

Stayed 5 nights during October at this wonderful place. Scenery / setting towards ocean is marvellous, hotel restaurant is very good and service was impeccable from all staff members (special thx to Joseph and Rodger who were beyond perfect!). Rooms are spacious & clean. Dive centre on the grounds is excellent. In short, perfect place for beach relaxing.

Had an amazing 5 days R&R here after spending time in 3 different Safari Camps. We have stayed in many, many hotels world-wide and this is one of the best. Amazing location, white sand, gorgeous turquoise sea, lovely comfortable hammocks.................When the tide is in it splashes dramatically onto the sea wall and parts of the artificial beach. The swimming pool... 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.
