The hotel is located at the far north of Zanzibar, near Nungwi village. Transport from the sea port costs 50$. The staff is pleasant, rooms are good, although there is no wifi inside, only in the public areas. The pool and the other facilities are also nice. The beach is very close, but not quite good for swimming. The best... More

Great place to stay with quiet beaches, the rooms were very clean and great food in the evenings at the restaurant. The staff were very friendly too. The snorkelling cruise arranged by the hotel was perfect! Beautiful sunsets from Zanzibar House!

The place is very quite and relaxing. The meal it's very good, and also breakfast is ok. The beach is nice, but is affected with bug tides, twice a day. Low tide the water dispears up to the reef, and when high tide is not possible to be in the beach becuase of the strong waves... so in the beach... More

After our one week safari (northern circuit) and a two day visit to Stone Town we had a 5 day stay in Mnarari Beach Cottages to complete our trip. The place is very quiet, well maintained and during our stay ( end august/beginning september) there were on average no more than about 17 guests . The garden bungalow we had... More

Mnarani has great views and a terrific location. Both close to Nungwi proper (and all its restaurants etc.), incredibly close to the turtle sanctuary but peaceful and secluded also. It is a great place for walks along the beach and relaxation. The rooms, pool and the hotel in general are all very clean and in a great spot with hammocks... More

The cottages were clean and well maintained. We arrived in Zanzibar on a very late flight. We arrived at the hotel around 2am. We were pleased to find that our room key had been left available, and there was someone to show us to our room. However, our room had 2 single beds, instead of 1 double bed. The staff... More

I got to the hotel at 1.30am as our plane had delays from JKIA. The next morning I woke up at 10am and was briefed and got a very big breakfast. My nine nights at Mnarani were wonderful. The ladies had such beautiful floral arrangement on the bed. The room was amazingly clean, great food above all very friendly staff.... More

Thanks to everybody for these days in paradise. Food was delicious and people were amazingly kind, friendly and hard workers. We strongly recommend the Mnarani Beach Cottages. Our honey moon was even more special thanks to you. Thanks a lot, Anna and Roger.

This hotel was such a great find! My friend and I had stayed nearby the night before in not such a nice place. We started wandering around and came upon Mnarani. The people at the front desk offered us a great deal that included breakfast and dinner as well as an ocean view room. There was nobody around so we... More

Stayed in sea view cottage. As other reviews say - very small room but clean and has private bathroom with good powerful shower. Great to relax on the deck. Few fellow guests so easy to find chair/lounger. If you're looking for sand head to Kendwa.
