My husband and I stayed at RNBH after a week-long safari on the mainland. The hotel was, by far, the cheapest of all the places we stayed at and was also the BEST. Great value for money, great rooms and fab service!! It was our belated honeymoon and we were upgraded to a seaside suite FREE OF CHARGE and given... More

We spent five days at this hotel and it was so restful and enjoyable. We walked in and when I asked about upgrading our room it was handled. We had a beautiful room with a terrific view of the most beautiful water in the Indian Ocean. The hotel was not sold out due to high season not in full swing,... More

We, family with two children 12 and 14, went to Ras Nungwi after a safari in Tanzania during the Christmas Holidays. We had a superior chalet with two rooms, one for us and one for the children. There was a small sight of the sea from the chalet terass. Entering the hotel was like coming to the paradise after a... More

Ras Nungwi hotel is about half 45 minutes drive from the airport and away from the usual tourist type hotels. Its rare to come across a hotel that really cares and treats you like you deserve rather than just a number or a tourist. Having travelled the world extensively I have yet to find a hotel where the management and... More

Excellent location, very nice ambiency, great beach, fantastic water, good food. Some negative remarks are the very high cost of any extra (higher than any high... More

During our road trip around Tanzania, we stayed in many different types of places but upon arrival at Ras Nungwi we knew immediately that we had found a well managed, tastefully decorated establishment. We arrived at night and so had no idea that we would wake up to a view with the deepest blue ocean with white sandy beaches like... More
