Our stay here was certainly not unpleasant but we left feeling rather disappointed and underwhelmed. This place was very expensive (£120) per night and for that much in Africa you expect an extremely good place in which to stay in. The Place is itself is pretty and well-maintained. The pool area is pretty and the beach-side is restaurant is very... More

6 of us stayed at the Flame Tree Cottages and they were wonderful. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. There is a great pool and quick access to the beach. The complimentary breakfast was great to wake up to. The owners & staff went out of their way to help us. I would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I spent a week at this hotel with friends! It was by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in- and we've stayed in some beautiful places across the U.S. and other countries- Flame tree is the perfect combination of luxurious in all forms and authentic to the local culture. The hotel has fabulous... More

Individual cottages with breakfast served on the veranda (and cocktails later in the day). This was a superb experience. We were made to feel part of a pampered family. The, pool, the beach and especially the food are all warmly recommended. We will certainly be back.

I stayed for 5 nights at FTC. On arrival I was shown to my room but wasn't given a run down of local information or where to find things etc. My room was lovely and clean with a comfortable bed with mosquito netting. The shower was disappointing as for the price I was paying I expected hot water and a... More

Our stay here was not unpleasant, but for the amount we paid in comparison to the other resorts, I was disappointed by Flame Tree Cottages, it was average on every account. It's a spacious lodge, set in a pretty garden on the very busy beach of Nungwi. It has a European feel to all parts of it, including lacking the... More

We stayed there for 3 nights and would absolutely have enjoyed staying for one more week, at least. We had a fantastic room, big and clean. The staffs were ever so service minded. We woke up every morning to fresh coffee and tea on our own terrace and as soon as they saw us outside, they came back and took... More

Ok, let me start with the good.The staff are lovely and friendly and the mattress was amazing (if you like a firm mattress like I do). Also, the bread and butter served with breakfast were absolutely delicious! They tasted totally home made. And the pool was pretty good though there was no real view from it. And that's it for...

Flame Tree was a choice that, we didn't regret at all. We were 3 friends and planned this get-away for months. We researched several places before we finalized on 2 places split 3 nights at Flame Tree and 4 nights at a resort in Pongwe. We hired a car and drove for 1-hour to reach Nungwi. The drive was without... More
