Everything exceeded our expectations when my husband and I stayed at Ras Nungwi for 4 days in July 2016. In a stunningly beautiful atmosphere, we received excellent food, service and entertainment. We took the half-board option for our food and found there was a generous selection of delicious dishes, very fresh and high quality. The room was beautiful with lovely... More

We came here after a seven day safari in the Serengeti looking to relax after being bounced around in a jeep. What a paradise. Quiet location overlooking the beach. The staff is friendly and attentive. The hotel is well kept and just beautiful. Lovely spa and massage to help with the aches and pains. Food is excellent too

I loved that the Ras Nungwi served as a relaxing beachside villa, but also offered excursions (like scuba diving and forest adventures). The restaurant served delicious food, and they had a full bar (although the drinks were a bit pricey). I would go back in a heartbeat for the service, the friendly staff, and the views!

We had a lot of family coming over to Tanzania and we were thrilled we chose to introduce them to Zanzibar with Ras Nungwi. They catered very well to larger groups, including those in our party who were particularly picky about room location. The kids enjoyed swimming in the warm pool and the beach was gorgeous (although yes - you... More

My wife and I live in Dubai and took a long weekend to explore Zanzibar. We loved this hotel! The General Manager, Philip, was a pleasure and his entire team provided an incredible experience. We had a bungalow that was right on the beach! Oh, and it's a great place to get a souvenir - our baby girl is due... More

I read a lot about Ras Nungwi before going on my safari, I was quite excited about my time decompressing there after a long safari. My safari operator had some issues with the booking and it was nearly cancelled. It was not a pleasant situation, but then Phillip, the head of the hotel, notified of the issue in person and...

We stayed in in the honey moon suite which was well worth the extra expense and better than we could have ever imagined. It has a private pool, beach area and a roof top deck. They arrange a private roof top dinner for us one night and took every extra effort to make you stay amazing.

We stayed in room 19 & 20. step out of room, 10 steps down and you are into the beach. Great place to unwind. The food & bar are not that great. It is not wheel chair friendly. Carry your own wine, few books and surrender to the beach!
