I went with my girlfriend to Zanzibar for a relaxing 5 days after our safari. A good choice! From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. The staff were wonderful and relaxed which was a nice change of pace from our rather hectic safari. Our room was a sea-facing chalet and had apparently just been refurbished. Everything seemed new and fresh and my girlfriend gave it her approval which is sufficient for me. Being a watersports man myself, I signed up for some scuba diving and waterskiing. The diving was some of the best I have experienced around the world and the hotel's watersports centre was both professional and friendly at the same time. One thing - I was forced to do a refresher course because I hadn't dived for more than 6 months - I wasn't too happy about this but to be fair suppose it is for safety reasons.

The food was amazing! All sorts of African fusion things going on and we enjoyed the buffet night especially - I've never seen so many choices of seafood! The waiters were jovial an attentive and all credit to the barman 'Doc' who kept us entertained during the evenings.

The management were friendly and professional and the general manager (Chris - I think his name is) is a character! I'm a little disappointed that he was too busy to give me a kite-surfing lesson though!

There were mostly honeymooners and couples around and this made just the right atmosphere we were looking for. All in all an excellent five days - highly recommended!!!

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday on Zanzibar where we celebrated our 27th Wedding Anniversary and cannot praise Ras Nungwi management and the staff enough.
A special mention and a big thank you to Chris, Nikki, Karen and the watersports crew (Andy, Woody, Alex and Bakali) for making our stay so very special and memorable. From the day we arrived we found a relaxing atmosphere, together with friendly and helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Ibrahim even managed to teach us a few words in Swahili, a true character who served us diligently in the restaurant most evenings. The accommodation was truly in keeping with the African Experience and the views of the white sandy beach and the Indian Ocean were truly breathtaking. The water sports (especially the scuba diving) is highly recommended as the views below the water are as stunning as those above. The food was excellent and creative (especially the soups) using local produce with lobster and prawns aplenty. The rooms were clean and welcoming with a fully stocked mini bar, fresh fruit and flowers. Management were always on hand if needed whilst being extremely discreet as most guests we spoke to were either on honeymoon or celebrating other special occasions. We expressed an interest in visiting a nursery school in Nungwi Village. Chris kindly made the arrangements with the headmistress and with a senior member of staff from Ras Nungwi who drove us there and back. The children's faces when they saw the books, pens and especially the sweets that we had brought from the UK will stay with us forever. This was one of the highlights of our trip made possible by Chris and his team. The icing on the cake was on the last night when Chris and Nikki secretly arranged for us to have dinner on the beach with a complimentary bottle of fine wine. This holiday was an experience of a lifetime and will stay with us forever. We rarely revisit any location as there are so many new places to see. However, we will make Ras Nungi the exception and we will be back. Hakuna Matata
