We spent four nights and it was glorious! The staff is amazing; very friendly and willing to please. We had a beautiful view of the beach... the water is amazing! Our room was wonderful. After a 5 day safari, it was delightful to be pampered (and to have a hair dryer!) :) The food was exceptionally good. We were very... More

Ras Nungwi is just a wonderful structure with everything you may desire and even more, except for the crowd and noisy tourism that characterises some other hotels of Zanzibar. The structure is set in a very quiet, retreated, beautiful and peaceful area. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the whole structure is wonderfully blended in the existing nature. There are...

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Relaxing with attentive staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The icing on the cake was the surprise evening meal under the stars on the beach. My only gripe the bed was very high and I have arthritis but even this didn't diminish the stay.

We stayed in Ras Nungwi for 5 nights in Sept 2016. It definitely felt like low season - the resort was over half-empty. Our Garden View room was large and lovely - I didn’t feel like I was missing out without an ocean view. (Though it's possible we got a complimentary upgrade - the resort was very empty) You spend...

We felt very special to be upgraded on arrival to a beachfront room, so close to the beautiful coloured ocean. The water lapped the lower steps to the beach at high tide just in front of our room. We spent hours sitting outside on our veranda watching the boats go by and the tide come in. The room was clean... More

This property is located at the far north end of Zanzibar island, about an hour or so drive from Stone Town and the airport. Our visit was an extension to our safari which we booked through Thomson Safaris. We were in room 12, which had a gorgeous view of the beach and Indian Ocean. The room was spacious with a... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it really friendly. The room was perfect - comfy bed and good shower and staff were excellent, especially in helping us locate our delayed baggage. The beach was beautiful but you do need to be careful of the tide. Snorkelling was well worth it especially swimming with dolphins :-) The food at... More

Stayed 2 nights after a 3 week safari in east Africa. Peaceful and very comfortable great beach walks at low tide, heaps of life in the small rock pools and nice warm water to swim in. Staff were excellent and rooms were great.

We stayed 10 nights at Ras Nungwi with our boys (12 and 14). Our rooms (small cottages) were adjacent with sea views. The grounds and pool are lovely. There are hammocks under the trees situated above the beach - my favourite spot. The tide is either very high (no beach) or very low (a long walk to the water) but... More

Location: it is far from the town center or civilization... It is about 30 min walk to the main beach where you can find a lot of nice pubs, stores etc. Check the low tide schedule before you leave, go to visit one of the pub along the main beach, drinks are cheap. Nice view during sunset. Very relax. By... More
