Arriving here after 4 weeks of camping was like arriving in an alternate universe. Paradise! Amaan Beach Bungalows are set right on the beach of the beautiful Indian Ocean. Amazing turquoise sea and white sand. The complex is like a little village with restaurants, shops, beauty parlour… amazing. Great breakfast buffet selection but they could do with more cooked breakfast... More

We booked this accommodation by emailing the management & their response was quick and professional. We chose an ocean front room and were so glad we did. The location was amazing. It was so relaxing sitting on the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean watching the dhows pass by and the sound of the waves gently lapping underneath at night. Turquoise... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in both a garden room and a sea view room. The sea view room is a must and I would not recommend staying in the garden rooms which are dark and a bit run down. Sea view rooms are much lighter and have a little balcony that looks out on to the beach. The... More

Zanzibar with its beautiful ocean was wonderful, however the Amaan Bungalows are to be avoided. Firstly, the food was poor in comparison with other hotels and restaurants in the same vicinity. Basic hygiene standards were not adhered to either in the kitchen or the restaurant itself. The rooms were basic and very poor, however the view from the sea facing... More

The complex has great atmosphere, especially pool area and restaurant are in good location and fun to hang out at. They are one of the few places that play some music by the pool as well. Unfortunately they charge too much for that in my view. For the same price the basic garden room doesn't have AC, is smaller and... More

Zanzibar is somewhere I have always wanted to visit. I was thrilled to finally get there. I did not arrive at tje hotel until 10pm, and I was really impressed that I was still able to get dinner. Thankfully it is not a buffets, but A la carte, so I was able to get a great meal at that time.... More

We stayed at the Amaan Bungalows last June. We found the hotel better than we expected, the staff were friendly and aimed to please. The restaurant was a bit disappointing, the food generally took a very long time to come once ordered. The quality was inconsistent, however the view over the water was breath taking. The staff were happy to... More

Very unkind and unhelpful staff. The first night we got a garden room that was completely surrounded by other rooms, so there was almost no air coming in (don't take room G17). Without A/C and with a fan that didn't work well too hot to sleep. Next day we wanted to move to a deluxe room with A/C (deluxe is... More

I traveled from Nigeria and stayed 3 nights at Amaan Beach Bungalows, Nungwi Beach, Zanzibar. I had a great experience. The staff are very nice, warm and welcoming. The environment, rooms and services rendered are perfect! Also, the General Manager Mr. Gilbert, is a great host! I will definitely visit Amaan Beach Bungalows again. Bola, Nigeria.

We ended our 2 week holiday with 5 days in Nungwi and stayed here. The room was clean, simple and stylish, but closer inspection shows that some of the workmanship is a bit bodged! Breakfast buffet was okay but not brilliant, it would have been great to actually have fresh coffee at breakfast rather than instant. The pool was very... More
