We stayed at Ras Nungwi in 2004 for our honeymoon, and it was fabulous. Staff, food, service and stay all excellent. Only tip I would give is bring US$, we made the mistake of taking local currency, and most of Zanzibar don't want it. Resort isolated, quiet, and very relaxing.

This is a very comfortable welcoming hotel, with attentive management and staff. The staff are out to look after guests and all sorts of suggestions and offers - nothing is to much bother. The food in the set menus was excellent and had a good variety - food off the a la carte was also excellent, but very, very slow.... More

I highly recommend this place if you want to kick back relax and enjoy the sea, the pool and do some diving, David is great. The best cabin for two is #19 or the one next to it. Right at the sea and a stair case down to the beach. Its only draw back is that it is about 45... More

We have just returned from Ras Nungwi after staying there for four nights at the end of our honeymoon. We were due some relaxation after 6 days safari in Ruaha and Selous and we were not disappointed. We stayed in a superior chalet with massive bed, great shower, mini bar, i-pod dock and hairdryer. The staff were all fantastic- friendly,... More

the staff at this place are fabulous, its a long time since I came across such nice, pleasant, customer focused people. they made my stay a joy. The basic rooms are OK but there are no frills. Admittedly I went at the beginning of the season but it was very quiet, the place lacked any lively atmosphere - especially in... More

Spent 3 nights here - and have decided I could live there! We had a magnificent bungalow room on the waterfront - a few stairs down to the beach - the view was divine. Huge bed with mosquito netting, great shower pumping out glorious hot water, tea and coffee making, full fridge. Lovely comfy sun lounges with oodles of towels... More

After a busy week of safaris we finished up at Ras Nungwi to relax at the end of our vacation. We had a beautiful room overlooking the Indian Ocean with the wonderful sound of waves crashing to shore nearby. All of the staff was friendly and helpful, in particular the staff at the pool and David at the dive shop.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights after a couple of weeks roughing it around East Africa and it was everything I wanted it to be. The manager Bakari makes you welcome from the moment you arrive and takes time to personally show you around the resort and checks on you throughout your stay. It's a great touch. The rooms are...
