“Blissful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

We stayed in Ras Nungwi for 6 nights as part of our honeymoon, after a safari trip. It's hard to describe the wonderful relaxed, rustic atmosphere here. The view of the ocean is stunning. The food in Ras Nungwi was a real highlight for us, and we looked forward to Samir's menu each night. The staff in general were very warm and went out of their way to ensure everything was just right for us. It is a very intimate setting and does not at all feel like a typical "honeymoon" resort teeming with couples. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to those looking for some quiet relaxation, beautiful setting and 5* food.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

If you are looking for 5 star luxury without compromising the feeling of intimacy and connection to the locally environment then Ras Nungwi is the perfect destination. The food is fantastic, due to their creative and talented chef. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly without 'crowding' you; everyone that works there appears genuinely happy and proud of their hotel and service. The beach is simply breathtaking with fine white sand and beautiful turquoise lagoon. The pool is raised above the beach providing beautiful views of the lagoon. Indeed, every guest area or facility in the hotel has been thoughtfully designed to make it relaxing, aesthetically stunning, comfortable and luxurious with a rustic charm that makes it sympathetic to the islands natural beauty. Within a few hours of arriving at Ras Nungwi, we both felt really privileged to have found somewhere so special. I fully intend to go back there and would thoroughly recommend Ras Nungwi to friends and family!

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are fabulous With the sound of the waves crashing on the beach!

Arriving at Ras Nungwi was a wonderful surprise, rustic surroundings with 5 star accommodation.
The sheer beauty of the unspoilt beach on one's doorstep and to be able to swim in the ocean everyday was so relaxing......it didn't take long to have the feeling of walking on a cloud.
The staff were wonderful and took care of every whim, haven't felt so spoiled in a long time. Went for a lovely sunset cruise with a bit of snorkeling thrown in. Was truly sorry to leave and will return soon.

My family & I spent a week on safari and ended up at the Ras Nungwi Hotel. The service was amazing, the staff are kind, helpful and friendly! The food was amazing. Sandy white beaches and a spectacular blue ocean on your door step! We will definitely go back again and again! I would highly recommend to anyone else! This also makes a wonderful hotel for families as children are well catered for.

My husband and I visited Zanzibar on our honeymoon. We Loved the beaches and booked a few nights at Ras Nungwi. It was such a peaceful experience. The beach was heavenly and the fossils in the coral around the island were amazing. We walked the beach at sunset and were amazed by the sandbars in the moonlight. Our room was great, the food was excellent and I felt that it was one of the best hotels I visited during my trip to Tanzania! I highly recommend this hotel!

Just in the door from a great Safari to Kenya and a very relaxing beach holiday in Zanzibar. The 4 night stay in Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel far exceeded our expectations. The service was certainely the best received anywhere including 5 star hotels in Europe & the US. Food was great (limited dinner menu but always FANTASTIC, breakfast was superb). Accommodation was very good, wonderful beach location. We loved having access to Diving and Kyaking on site, a first attempt for us. I would suggest visiting Stone Town doing aspice farm fisit etc from Ras Nungwi we stayed in Stone Town and wished we were still in Ras Nungwi. The Shop & spa on site are handy, nice walk on the beach to the village or in the other direction like a desert island. The staff were terrific, always attentive & always friendly. Samir the head chef was a wonderful ambassador for the hotel aside from his great food.
