If its relaxation and tranquility that you're after, this is it. Hotel is perfectly positioned. Wonderful friendly staff. Nice spacious rooms. Right on the beach and a short walk along it will take you to the turtle aquarium. Lovely spa and activities available. Will definitely return.

I stayed here for nearly two weeks in February as a writing retreat. I needed to find a peaceful, beautiful, inspiring spot to write my book. And this turned out to be perfect! I had been to Nungwi years earlier, but had stayed on the northwest side of the island, which has beautiful beaches, but which is far more crowded.... More

If you want total relaxation, absolutely amazing service and breathtaking views, then you'll love your stay here at Ras Nungwi. I spent 4 nights here for my first solo trip and it was more than I expected it to be. I was truly pampered and the whole experience left me completely enthralled. I'll definitely be back soon!

This is a lovely hotel. They take terrific care of all of their guests. They are beyond eager to please. We don't do 'relax' real well so should have stayed only 3 or 4 nights instead of 5 or 6 as there's not a whole lot to do there. Great food, drink and spa services. Regarding location - you need...

I had the pleasure to stay at this resort from October 2-6, 2014 in Chalet 5. The grounds of this resort were immaculate and I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff were. One example of the amazing service was when my friend mentioned he had forgotten to bring a pair of sandals. The Manager Rath offered... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Tanzania and finished our trip with three days at the Ras Nungwi. Firstly, I have to thank Jennifer at Imagine Africa for the recommendation. I had been to Nungwi before and wanted a different, more romantic ambiance and she certainly found it. Our chalet was beautiful - fresh flowers every day and... More

The hotel is in the north of the island one hour drive from the airport and that is the worst thing I can say about the hotel :) The hotel is so cozy and almost family like. The style is a mix of Zanzibar and colonial style. It is very private and placed on the unspoiled part of the island,... More

The property itself is fantastic, very well appointed, extremely comfortable with super helpful staff. My only issue with the hotel is that it's on the east side of Nungwi, which means there's no sunset, and can be very windy. The other issue is that while it has a fantastic view of the ocean, which is just pristine, there really isn't... More

After roughing it out in the wild for almost 2 weeks, Ras Nungwi was such a blissful experience. It was like being in our own little world because it seems like everything was available in the resort. We could enjoy the beautiful view from the inside and outside of our room. The room has the largest bed I have ever... More

staff is very friendly, they found out it was my birthday and had a special dinner set up for me on the beach. They do anything you need. Area I'd secluded away from town so more private, but close enough to walk if you want. Diving is excellent. I will be back!!
