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

We arravied at Tanzanite beach Resort on 3 April 2014. The rment. The rooms and facilities was a total dissapoint. Even though it is budget accommodation one expects clean rooms and frienldy staff. 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

We booked a garden view bungalow for three and as they had rooms available with sea view they offered us one. Rooms are very clean and big like the bathroom. But there's no window so we hear the waves (depends on if you like it...). There is no beach when the sea is up. It's a little far from the... More

Very good!!My friend and I stayed at Tanzanite in the end of August for 7 days for the purpose of full relaxation and de-stress. We could not... More

The rooms at the Tanzanite are clean and comfortable. A large, comfortable double bed and a large bathroom with hot water (on demand, you turn a switch 15 minutes before showering). The resort has a nice pool and plenty of sun chairs, hammocks and a like to relax in. Beware if you are looking to swim in the ocean though... More

We stayed 4 nights here and the grounds are presented fantastically with lovely staff willing to help in any way possible. The resort is about a 20 minute walk from the main area of Nungwi, which has it's pros and cons. It's fantastic for relaxing and not being overloaded with other tourists, however it's a long way to go to... More
