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

I recently stayed here with a group of photographers. Food was good, specially BBQ night. However the rest of the nights the menu was identical. The beach is really beautiful and the pool was rather nice. There is a diving outfit right on the premises. Unfortunately due to some issues with the front end staff, and misunderstanding with a manager,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The restaurant serves 5 star food all day, the dice center offers excellent options for anything water related, the rooms are absolutely gorgeous and the view is breathtaking. Christina, Liza and their staff do a fabulous job of meeting your every need.

This resort sits right on the beach and has spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. The bungalows were spacious and clean. The service was top notch....friendly and helpful employees at every turn. The food was above average and we enjoyed every meal. The buffet breakfast with omelet station was particularly good.

It would have been a great loss if we have not tried this resort. First few nights in the month of Jul 2016, we have spent in another 4 star hotel in the same location, but after travelling a long way, we did not get the feel of an African island beach holiday there. So we have decided to try... More

My two daughters and I had an organized and prepaid stay. From the start Ras Nungwi failed to have the agreed upon transfer from the airport to the hotel. The airport, like most was a zoo, with too many people, too hot, language issues and we waited an hour and a half in this miasma for our pickup. The manager... More
