The Amaan Beach Bungalows offer a lower cost alternative to the expensive resort hotels in Nungwi. What you pay for is what you get...not much. I stayed in the older beachside rooms opposite the office. The room was small, modestly appointed and other than the deck overlooking the beach and ocean had nothing to recommend it. The pool area was... More

We love the location - best beach - always able to swim in the ocean. We have stayed here 3 times already - we enjoy the pool area, good food and good service. We prefer the pool side room - they are clean, nice and quiet. Better than garden rooms.

Amaan Bungalows is located at Nungwi Beach, one of the great beaches in the north of Zanzibar. It takes about 75 minutes by taxi to get here from Stonetown. Once arriced, you find the beach just next to your accommodation. The staff is polite are always willing to help you, the rooms are clean, spacious and accommodate all the necessities.... More

Despite having the prettiest beach side rooms, accommodation was damp and smelly, beds poor, senior staff unhelpful and lacking the usual Tanzanian charm. Over-priced buffet meal was poor, and we spent no more time here than necessary.

We stayed in a waterfront room for 2 nights. The room itself is average - basic, clean, with a net, safe, and A/C but not much else for amenities. Being in a room that is literally perched above the crashing waves has its pros and cons - the views are amazing, but if you are a light sleeper the waves... More

JAMBO ALEX Your openness and honesty about how Amaan is, is very outstanding. Let me assure you that we have changed most of the waiting staff and took in more professional ones. Many of our clients have complained about our our prices being high. Many food items in the Island have gone up but all the same we have said... More

Rooms (around the pool) were nice enough, modern and clean. Bathroom was huge and clean. Layout of the rooms around the pool and the porches was off. It was like we were living at the pool side, huge glass windows which means you have no real source of natural light if you want any kind of privacy in you room.... More

This hotel has so much potential. A wonderful location with nice rooms. Beach is stunning & a nice pool area. The staff seem so unhappy I can only imagine the management are complete bastards. You feel ripped off at every turn. They charge a massive 6% surcharge for credit cards and then try to charge you in US$ at a... More

We stayed at Amaan Bungalows on July, 2014 for scuba diving. We liked very much the white sanded beach, turqoise sea and walking on the beach. We enjoyed to have our drinks in happy hour in the hotel restaurant while watching sunset. We stayed in a room at ground floor looking to the pool. I suggest to prefer a room... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel, the first night in a pool view room upstairs and the second in a sea view room. The rooms were the same size and had the same furniture, a private safe, and air conditioning. Own boiler in the bathroom and you can have hot water in 15 minutes. The sea view room has... More
