Very peaceful beach hut cabins. Always clean and lovely welcome bed decoration everyday. Private pool and lounging areas very relaxing. Staff very friendly not invasive. Homecooked food with simple menu but very satisfying. There is a private beach area but only good for swimming at one part of the day when tide is high. There are lots of coral and... More

+ really helpful, professional and friendly staff + nice beachfront restaurant + good breakfast (you have to wait a bit-but it's worth it) + extra bath towels + well kept garden area + nice pool in front of the ocean + location far away form the italian hype - small room

Stayed here with a few backpacking friends, it was very quiet and there was only 1 other couple staying there at the time. Food was very average and over priced for the quality but the staff were very lovely!! I would recommend this for a couple that would prefer peace and quiet and are not wanting to spend a lot...

Tanzanite Beach resort is a family-run hotel located in the northern part of Nungwi. It is one of the few low-cost hotel in this part of the island. We spent four nights there and have been very happy of our stay. We had the opportunity to sleep in two different rooms, both with sea view. The first one, maybe too... More

We stayed there just over a week however we won't return.. No problem with our room or the other facilities.. The Food is terrible and Management didn't seem to be bothered when I raised it with them.. We wanted to also move after 2 nights to be closer to our Dive Centre and other restaurants but they insisted that we... More

Tanzanite was a random choice for us initially having just arrived in Zanzibar, booked for us by a friend, we didn't know what to expect. I have to say we had a wonderful week there, we were the only guests most of the time, so had the great pool to ourselves! The staff were friendly, James the manager and the... More

No choice of beverages etc. We walked down the beach and found another resort. Even though we have already paid for our stay at Tanzanite, we decided... More

After travelling two weeks in Tanzania we were pleasantly surprised when the manager of the Tanzanite Beach Resort upgraded us - in our experience its not very usual in Tanzania that such services are given. In general the staff was service minded and friendly and did their best to accommodate our needs. The room was clean and tidy and the... More

We stayed at Tanzanite as part of our honeymoon and it is certainly a mixed bag. Hotel: The hotel grounds are lovely, raised above the beach so the tide can come in and out. There are loungers and hammocks to relax on and the pool is small but clean. The staff are all friendly but only the man at reception... More
