I ended a 10 day safari with 2 nights at the Nungwi Inn. The booking was made by my tour so I can't comment on that service but I splashed out on a single room, which had a double bed, for 45$US (not sure if this was discounted as we were a group) and was happy with what I got, Air con, ceiling fan, and en suit, having spent time in a tent I might have been in a generous mood, but the room was clean and comfortable and really that's all I ask for. The rooms are like semi detached houses, not like beach huts, so I felt my belongings were safe, but still there is a security safe at reception too.
The breakfast was included and OK, fruit platter and then eggs (which ever way you wanted, but i opted for omelette which was always good) and toast. The flies are an issue if you sit in, but as the bar and restaurant are literally right on the beach you can move out there and then there's no issue.
The restaurant menu is good, plenty on offer and the BBQ was really taste. The bar offer an array of cocktails and beer, Killi available so i was happy!
The staff vary but the bar man was great, did not drink, and stayed up with us to ensure our safety when we stayed out on the beach till late on our last night.
You can hire a beach bed for 10,000 shillings for a whole day or 5,000 for half a day. They are very comfortable and come with a parasol but be quick there are limited numbers, luckily I was there in March which is low season, so no problem.
Nungwi beach is lush and I highly recommend it, but beware of the beach boys though, a little annoying but I found if you were pleasant but firm they soon gave up and left you alone.
Also plenty of other restaurants very nearby for alternative venues, I recommend z hotel, great coffee so my friend said and I can vouch for the seafood salad - lush!
A dive school is attached but I didn't go- this time!!
