“Top in Zanzibar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We stayed in Hideaway with some friends and we had an amazing time.everything seemed to be very well done probably the only hotel i have seen in Zanzibar that you can call a proper 5 star.Service is average compared to what you would expect in a leading hotel but i understand this is the norm everywhere in Zanzibar.The beach the po and Spa are world class.If you are looking to go to Zanzibar book this resort.

It was a great stay at hideaway Nungwi.Right from the welcome at the reception by the front office staff,to the rooms,and the restaraunts.It was great.The rooms had great decor and potrayed a true african way of living with the pictures.The only unfortunate bit was that the tv was hardly working.It could hardly show any channel and if one was lucky to come across any,it was only after midnight.I dont know whether the remotes had problems or the screen itself,but something needs to be done.
Otherwise the food and drinks at the different restraunts and bars was nice.I had an opportunity to go for steam bath and shed off some fat and cooled at the bubble birth.It was breath-taking.
The beach area had great fine sand and indeed its well managed.
Generally the environment at Hideaway is well mantained in its natural setting by letting "the green" rule .Its nice to conserve the environment and i picked a leaf from this.

The stay in Hideaway was the best. The staff and their friendly manner and proffessional way of serving customers was excellent. Hideaway is a place full of pure relaxation surrounded by beauty. Worth a visit. The scenery, floral arrangements,meals, the room décor, the facilities, customer care is more than you can imagine. The beach is and the water is breath taking. Will definately stay with you again.

I have never reviewed a resort before,but the warm check out we received from Lucy,after an amazing 2 nights in Hideaway i definately have to review.
We were staying in a resort nearby,and one evening while on a sunset cruise we cruised by this new magnificient inviting resort that really stood out so the following day out of curiosity we decided to ask for their rates,which were very affordable,and therefore decided to spend our last 2 days there,instead of Stone town and we were not dissapointed at all.
From the entrance to the beach everything is 5 star,very nice open reception with a full sea view,friendly receptionists,very nicely manicured gardens.
We were taken to a room where we thought we had been upgraded as it was very luxurious,only to be told that its the standard room,wow,it was complete sea view from the bed.
The swimming pool is infinity and has to be the most beautiful pool i have seen,the restaurant,the bar area and the spa with a cold jacuzzi and sea view gym was amazing, the beach was the best i have seen in Zanzibar,very fine sand,white and spotless clean.
In terms of service,sometimes,it would take sometime to get what you order,but that doesn't cause an alarm to scream,after all we were on holiday,no rush.

All in all i wish we could have stayed at least for a week,but we will definitely be going back.

For our 10-year anniversary, we wanted to do something special and decided to celebrate it in Zanzibar. We are glad that we chose the Hideaway of Nungwi as our stay was perfect and definitely one to remember. I would especially recommend the beach dinner for the atmosphere but also for the food which was delicious. There are also plenty of complimentary activities provided which kept us busy every day! We definitely would have liked to stay longer and will recommend the place to our friends and family. Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay so special.

My wife and I had such a nice and relaxing time at the Hideaway of Nungwi. It was our second time in zanzibar and after a first desapointing experience in another hotel, we decided to give it another try. The place is beautiful in terms of beach and facilities. The staff was very friendly (We are use to travel in Africa) and they are very helpful. The managers are also very available and do check on you to make your stay perfect. The Spa was superb and the therapists very skilled (they relieved my wife from her backache). A special thanks to Wisdom, the bell boy, who has given us a great service. Anyway, we could not ask for more and can't do anything else but recommend it!
