Travelling as a group of 4 friends, we stayed in two adjoining rooms which made up a very clean and cosy yet spacious self contained chalet. A sumptuous breakfast was served on our private terrace every morning by lovely friendly staff. Upon arrival, I had frostbite due to climbing Kilimanjaro - the owner Elizabeth was absolutely wonderful, and made sure... More

My friends and I spent 4 nights at Flame Tree Cottages during the New Years Eve week and I cannot express how happy we were with the resort! It's located on the west end of Nungwi Beach (which is less busy than the rest of the beach) and within walking distance to all the bars, restaurants, dive / watersport shops... More

What a great stay was this! A super managed and maintained lodge on Zanzibar which we can only recommend. Location: Nungwi beach, and you're next to the beach - the estate is very well maintained and has a very nice pool with great parasols, beds and good matrasses. Rooms: large rooms, much storage space, perfect bathroom with always hot water... More

We stayed for a week at Flame Tree leaving on the 25th December. Prior to booking at Flame Tree we deliberated long and hard about the alternative accommodation in Nungwi, after being there for a day or two we believed that we had made the right choice. The cottages are well spread out in well kept gardens with a central... More

Cozy cottages. Charming really. Very different than large beachfront hotels. But still on the beach! Staff was very helpful. Management was accommodating and customer focused. Shower door handle didn't work and they had a plumber in the room shortly after I mentioned it. We brought our three kids and the family we travelled with had three kids. We all had... More

We had planned our honeymoon at the last minute due to our crazy work schedules and in addition we got off to a horrid start by arriving 2 days later than planned due to visa issues on our transit through Canada. So we arrived late night to flame tree after a looooong journey on a dark and winding road. We... More

We arrived there tired and did not look for other places. The garden is nice, so is the beach, and we followed a yoga class on the site (20$) facing the sunset which was great. The restaurant is also quite good. The room however were not at all what we could expect for such a price. Clean, very small window,... More

Just spent an amazing 4 nights at Flame Tree and wish I could have stayed longer. My room (Flame) was spacious and comfortable with plenty of hot water and an air conditioner.
