I was on a private holiday. Narrowed on Casa Umoja after reading quite a few reviews in Tripadvisor and Bookings.com. I must say it was well worth the money i paid. God a big spacious room with good linen. The assistants Haji and Saif were very friendly and helpful. The property is less than 500 meters from the Nugwi Beach.... More

We stayed at Casa Umoja as part of a yoga retreat package. Our room was huge and clean. It was basis but that didn't matter. We did have an ant problem but they gave us some spray which solved the problem immediately. Breakfast was the freshest fruit I've ever tasted. The location is brilliant… 30 seconds walk to the beach!

I’ve been there for four days to practice yoga . The place it’s absolutely wonderful, you don’t have sea view but you’re just few meters close the beach. I had a big room with lovely decor, big matrimonial bed, chairs, closet made in traditional wood and nice shower. The different buildings and bungalows are in the middle of a garden... More

This place was absolutely wonderful for our family. It is only a few steps off of the beach but is close enough that you don't feel like you are missing any of the Nungwi action. Being set back however does give an extremely sense of tranquility. When you walk through the Casa Umoja entrance you are brought into a little... More

I really enjoyed staying at this idyllic little slice of heaven. A block from the beach, it was a very nice & quiet place to lay low and recharge my batteries. The staff is tremendously friendly and helpful. The room was nice. And Nungwi is a fantastic little Eden.

The owners are nice by email but they are not there most of the time I suppose. The staff doesnt speak English. The place looks like crap. Dirty and dilapidated. I was meant to stay there for yoga, but I didnt like it at all.Also the area is sketchy. Maybe the price solo is worth it, but as a very... More

I stayed at Casa Umoja for a month, during a yoga retreat, and it was brilliant. The place is beautiful, and is tucked back from the beach, but the beach is right outside. The food was amazing and was different every single day for the whole month. The rooms varied in style but all were comfortable. My room was lovely,... More

I stayed for a week while doing a yoga retreat and this was just the place. Away from the bustle of the beach in a peaceful garden. The rooms were clean and spacious and the buildings and garden traditional. Staff were helpful and friendly. A restaurant would have been nice but then they are building one, and the staff were...

I've stayed at Umoja a few times already and this Sept I dropped in almost after a year and it was still wonderful. You know how you wonder if a place is still as nice if you haven't been there in a while? Well, Umoja has always been a wonderful experience. Its 30 seconds from the beach but just conveniently...
