We were seven people in the age from 21 years to 52 years staying in four different cottages, and we all had a really nice experience :)
First of all, the place was just beautiful.
The beach was nice and the light was so fascinating.
I felt I was a part of a dream the first day I woke up and had a walk along the beach.
The breakfast for all of us was served outside our cottage, Flame.
All the cottages were nice, clean and comfortable.
The area around the cottages was like a beautiful park.
And in this park it was possible to have a bath in the pool, have something to drink and even to play football- tennis.
We also loved the opportunity to have a walk in the village outside the gate.
The New Year arrangement was very nice. We loved the entertainers and the dinner was excellent :)
All of us found it very relaxing living in Flame Tree Cottages.
I really do hope I will have the opportunity to return to this beautiful place :)

Room Tip: We lived in Flame, Rose, Hibiscus and Bouganvilla,- and all of us lived very comfortably :)

Fantastic week spent at Flame Tree Cottages Hotel. Superb room, lots of space for a family of 4 with 2 children and AC very much appreciated. Lovely having breakfast on our verandah overlooking the beautiful gardens. Stunning pool and the restaurant serves the best food in Nungwi overlooking beautiful beach with the whitest sand I have ever seen. We received a warm welcome (and goodbye!) from the owners who are always onhand and are very keen that you are made to feel like a house guest. We also liked the fact that most of the staff were from Nungwi, so you can pick up some great local knowledge!

Room Tip: Jasmin - near the pool but not too near and very roomy with 2 double bedrooms and sitting room with kitchen facilities

We stayed at the Flame Tree Cottages for four nights and enjoyed it very much. We were a family of four and had lots of space and quiet and wonderfully cool AC. We enjoyed our breakfast in the restaurant, so we could order what we would like, it was fresh and good and we ordered dinner in advance, so there was no wait, and dinner was also very nice. The beach is great at the end of the lovely garden, with private sun beds and a very nice beach bar close by. The owners were very friendly and organized a great snorkling trip for us with a lovely day to Mnemba. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We had a cottage which was nice. Kitchen was not so clean.

Staff were cold. We had no one great us, we asked everyone their name and no one remembered ours. And we asked in Swahili! We were here for a few days and nothing specific to us was ever remembered. We did not feel particularly welcome.

Loved the pool, location on beach was nice. Supper took forever. I like long meals but this was at least 2 hours each night - I think the menu should be shorter with a focus on fresh and prepared that day.

Lovely view.

Got water only on first day which was weird.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple
