As an avid traveler, I take a keen interest in reading other guests reviews. What I don't understand is why people say there is no beach. There is a beautiful beach (pictures attached), and like any other beach in the world, there are tides (high & low). Tide times are written up on the blackboard at the hotel daily. I... More

Mnarani Beach Cottages surpassed my expectations. The simple but efficient setting, the service from the staff, the support the staff gave to me and my children made us feel truly at home. The beautiful, and quiet setting made us all relax, and 'chill' out! There was hardly any disturbance from the people walking along the beach, which made the design... More

There are as well bungalows with a ocean view and bungalows with garden views. Hotel is located a bit out from the main hotel location (even... More

I heartily recommend Mnarani Beach Cottages for a great Zanzibarian experience. Staff are highly friendly and supportive, infrastructure is warm and very comfortable. If you are in a half board situation, you will enjoy great breakfasts ranging from almonds and dates to eggs and bacon with plenty of fresh fruit. I was there for NYE and my birhtday and really...

People at Mnarani makes everything special. Food and service are excellent. You find Restaurant, Bar, Spa and Ocean View rooms that make a nice hotel to stay with a reasonable price. The location allows you to walk around the hotel and know several places in Nwambi. I am a Costa Rican girl and I decided this trip with a friend.... More

I booked during high season without issue. Coming off 10 days of camping and safari travel the view was welcoming. Half board included buffet breakfast and dinner. The food was simple and differed each night. The breakfast was consistent. The place has a local feel that larger more modern resorts in the area appear to lack. The resort includes a... More
