Flame Tree is personally run by the owners. This leads to a pleasant atmosphere -(often lacking in this busy part of the island where most of the accommodation is either chain corporate lodges or neglectfully run smaller establishments). It is right on the beach and close to the beating heart of Ras Nungwi ( 5 mins walk along the beach)... More

Our family enjoyed staying at Flame Tree Cottages so very much. The owners were very kind and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 babies. We arrived late in the evening and were originally in a second floor unit, the hosts noticed we were having a hard... More

I stayed here for a yoga course with Leyla (filling in for Marisa) and had a really amazing time. I was travelling alone so slightly apprehensive but it feels very safe, they organised a transfer for me and gave me a lovely room 'Rose Cottage' which has a view of the sea. The staff are all friendly and the service... More

Our stay at Flame Tree Cottages in Nungwi , Zanzibar was absolutely fantastic. The cottages are very charming and cosy, and around the cottages a beautiful tropical garden is to be found. We were very satisfied with the friendliness and the amount of service from the staff. The owners do their utmost to make sure the guests feel at home.... More

Flame Tree cottages is situated in a large green compound. Houses are scattered around. Some with pool view, some with partly seaview. It seems like the rooms are all slightly different. I was first allocated a very tiny room, Bouganvillea. A bit disappointing, no nice decorations and a see-through glass door. Advantage was that if you sat on the veranda... More

A really lovely hotel with beautiful cottages right on the beach. We had two excellent dinners sitting under the stars with very friendly owners at hand to help with other arrangements. The cottage was spacious, clean and well mosquito-proofed. Beautiful clean swimming pool.
