My wife and I spent more than two weeks at sazani during August to relax after backpacking through east Africa. We could not have made a better choice. Sazani is perfect if you are looking for a five star location in a warm family b&b atmosphere and for fair prices. For us the best part about sazani was its incredible... More

The hotel itself was well appointed in that there was everything I needed for a relaxing few days on the beach. The room was comfortable and spacious and the sound of the waves on the beach just...

An Eco friendly green haven with his own private beach, terrific monitors and the most friendly staff you will come across in Nungwi. Perfect if you want to be by yourself yet a few minutes away to the bars and restaurants. Luscious gardens, hamacs spread trough out the property and the sound of the ocean cleansing all worries away from... More

We spent 5 nights at Sazani in july 2013. We booked a room with sea view for $ 130 per night, and got one night for free. A bit steeper than the price given on Tripadvisor. Sazani has simple rooms, but it is clean and the bed is comfy. It also had mosquito net. When we arrived we felt very... More

At a good price and food its the best place to experience both worlds of Nungwi. If you want to party and fancy restaurants head north for a nice walk. If you want to chill and spend time with your partner stay in the resort. Excellent place and awesome space to learn to Kitesurf.

We spent 3 nights at Sazani with our two young children. Immediately on arrival the manager, David, and all the staff, made us feel at home. The people at Sazani were all very friendly and welcoming, always helping us to organize our day ahead. Our kids were, by the end of the first day, in the kitchen cooking pancakes with... More

I spent 3 nights at Sazani in late June, 2013 with a group of six Americans from NYC and California. We had all traveled thoroughly throughout most continents, and were seasoned travelers by any measure. Although we utilized trip advisor, which has always been a reliable source, we didn't know what to expect (TIA?). We were pleasantly surprised to arrive... More

We spent 5 nights here in late Feb 2013, the hotel is situated in a beautiful location looking over the ocean with a fantastic sunrise in the morning. The rooms were basic and clean and the food fresh (if a little slow). It's the perfect place to go to escape and relax to get away from it all (though there... More

I spend 10 days (too short!) at Sazani during February 2013. Perfect location! Beautiful, tranquil, private and only 20 minutes' walk away from the hustle and bustle of Nungwi village. My room was basic, clean, authentically decorated, spaciously comfortable with a seaview. The tides create a constant change of scenery and determine the activities for the day. Food, although basic,... More
