As we prefer to avoid the big chains with possibly more luxury and consequently bigger guests population, Flame Tree has been an excellent choice. Very personal welcome by the 'supervisor' with fresh drinks. The owner and his wife occassionally pop in for the question whether everything is fine. Hakuna Matata. Very, very helpfull team of local staff. Allways willing to... More

This is a nice hotel right on the beach of Nungwi. Pros: The food. We catched a king fish which we gave to the friendly staff who prepared it for us free of charge. We had two different curry's and they were very delicious. Furthermore, we didn't have to pay for that nor the drinks. Breakfast is served outside the... More

Delicious food... We had a lunch and a dinner here. Though the wait was long our meals arrived nice and hot. Portions could have been more generous in relation to the pricy menu. Everything was fresh and tasty, and the view unmistakably Zanzibar. The ambiance for dinner is very romantic and dreamy, with a vibe that is entirely unique in... More

The Flame Tree Cottages is a very calm hotel on the Northern tip of the island. The best part of the hotel is probably the beautiful garden of the hotel. Most of the hotels on the island don't have a garden, and this is why it felt so relaxing. The garden holds also a nice pool. The restaurant of the... More

Very nice hotell, not so big. Close to the beach so nice to look at the sun going down. Nice swimmingpool. The staff was nice and kindley. Good food. The food and drinks you orderd you payd for when you leave. Had to ask for password for wifi every second/third day.

We stayed two nights. The rooms were nice and clean, but the AC was very noisy (bring earplugs) and the bed was hard. The hotel area is nice and very quiet, the service was ok but friendly. The breakfast was great and was served on the porch outside your bungalow which was fantastic. You have to walk a 5-10 minutes... More

I loved my stay here. The place is very basic, as it looks in pictures, comfortable, great location just right on the beach, with a nice pool, and a lovely bar/restaurant by the beach. I went on my own, and booked it through the yoga retreat, so I had combined yoga lessons for the weekend, which was perfect combination. It... More
