Excellent location. Beautiful little beach. It's a short walk from the Nungwi beach when tides cooperate. Cottages are actually pretty nice. Staff are very friendly. They actually let me borrow their personal bike to ride into town :-). They even patched up by only jeans(torn). I would stay here again. This is the perfect place for anyone that wants to... More

Just a 30 minute walk to Nungwi village if you ever need to go, but you won't want to as the beach in front of Sazani is more beautiful, more secluded and more peaceful than one near any other hotel in the area. There are lots of atmospheric places on the property to relax and enjoy the view. Food is... More

I think this hotel is really good. It's in an amazing place and half the price of a lot of the other hotels. The management staff is new and very easy to talk to, they also have some really amazing ideas for the place. I see a lot of reviews commenting on things like slow internet, or lack of hot... More

First things first, the rooms are pretty basic here. Unfortunately we stayed at the beginning of the season so the rooms were opened for the first time this year and there were a few problems - our toilet leaked, and our bathroom light didn't work. The shower is a bit of a challenge as it doesn't hook on the wall,... More

This is a beautiful hotel on a quiet, private beach about 30 mins walk along the beach to the town Centre and restaurants/ bars. The staff were very helpful with recommendations and bookings and to accommodate us. I'd definitely recommend and would love to go back.

10 rooms in a beautiful garden overlooking a white almost private beach. A constant breeze to make your stay so pleasant. The sound of the waves at high tide to accompany you in your dreams. A very very pleasant staff, supervised for a few months by Cathryn, from Wales. She was so friendly and helpful!! Otherwise the confort is very... More

We spent 5 nights here in October, and had a fantastic stay. The hotel itself is made up of simple rooms, fan, solar-heated hot water and big open netted windows that let in a nice breeze. You are up a small hill with a view of the water, with access to a beach below. The beach is among the nicest... More

My boyfriend and I came to stay here in August. The location is amazing, on a quiet secluded beach with no hassle. Every persons dream........! The room was fine, clean and adequate and it was cleaned every day. They have a strange meal policy at Sazani beach where you have to tell them if you want lunch or dinner in... More

A beautiful spot to relax along the eastern shore of Nungwi - super quiet except for the waves crashing on the beach. For us (myself and my partner), we were very happy with the ethics of the hotel which is connected to an NGO who work directly with the village - the only hotel of it's type there and a... More

After only a few days from home I begin to miss my dogs tremendously. Luckily, Sazani has a wonderful resident dog named Juwa (spelling?). He is friendly, kind, and fun, and on numerous occasions, greeted me at my cabin door to go for a walk on the beautiful beach. He was truly, the best thing about Sazani. I would rate... More
