We have just returned from our second trip to this little piece of paradise. We thought it couldn't improve from our first visit three years ago, but it has.
Every member of staff are service minded even down to the ladies who every day sweep the leaves to keep the garden looking beautiful. There were too many to mention each individual.
Beautiful meal, shrimp curry and octpous in coconut was my favourite one, just ask for Rasta chef and you will never regreat.

A centrally located place with decent facilities and the charm of a relatively small and family run hotel ( unlike the huge resorts).The restaurant is by far the best in Nungwi, located on a beach front terrace, with great complementary breakfast and great dinner ( don't forget to reserve a table ). After spending 8 days in the beach and exploring its different options , we think it is the best value for money we could find.

We stayed at Langi Langi for 8 nights, and had a wonderful time. These are the highlights:

First and foremost the staff are truly wonderful. They are all friendly, helpful, kind and courteous. They truly made our stay special. A big thanks in particular to Sele for looking after us so well.

The food was lovely. For dinner the seafood was very good and the daily special (usually freshly caught fish) was fantastic. The seafood curries were also great. Breakfast was wonderful - we especially enjoyed the daily selection of freshly baked breads and pastries, and the pancakes were wonderful too.

The room was clean, new and a good size. The aircon and fan worked like a charm.

The pool area, surrounded by lush garden is beautiful and we spent lots of time in the pool area. We also enjoyed lying on the loungers on the deck over the ocean.

The hotel is in a great location - right on the beach. In fact there are stairs from the restaurant down to the beach. The views are wonderful and you will come home with many fantastic photo's.

Thank you Langi Langi for a lovely time!

Stayed here for week after a week climbing Kilimanjaro and a week of hectic Tanzanian safari. It turned out to be great place to relax although it was tempting to get into some scuba diving but having had two weeks of intense activity, managed to resist the temptation in favour of just chilling.
Like most other resorts in the area, Langi Langi is tucked away between dense beach front resorts in a village. As our taxi drove into the area, we had a sinking feeling of having made a wrong decision in choosing this place, particularly after the somewhat regimented check-in at reception ($200 if you lose your key). But once we were in our beach front rooms we discovered that there was more to this resort then the hard nosed reception we had. The rooms we had were large and spacious with balconies which were great for sundowner drinks and watching fantastic sunsets every evening. Having explored the area more, this resort has more character than most others in the area. True it is not a luxury resort, but it doesn't claim to be one. It's Zanzibarian quirkiness gives a nice charm.
The Cafe/restaurant has an extensive and tasty menu. At high tide you can enjoy you dinner directly above the lapping sea.
Diving, snorkeling, sunset trips and other outings are easy to arrange.

I just got back from staying at this hotel for around 6 nights and I had a great time.

The hotel location is fantastic with great views and easy access to the beach (walk down the steps from lunch and you are at the beach). We enjoyed quite a few dinners relaxing and seeing the ocean/sunset.

Generally I like to get out of the hotel and eat at other places, however I can assure you the restaurant at the hotel is the best in Nungwi. The curries and masalas in particular are super rich in flavor and resulted in us nearly licking our plate after each dinner. Remember to make reservations as the place fills up, and also the waits for dinner can be long due to all the people wanting to get this delicious food, be patient.

As a contrast the breakfast (included in the room) is just ok. It's not bad, nothing is wrong, it just doesnt compare with how good the dinner is.

The staff were always friendly and helpful - giving us advice and helping with other things.

On the sad side (and this is not the hotel's fault) the beach is a particularly unrelaxing experience on most days. Why? Because this is a tourist city and thus there are tons of teenagers/early 20s who hang out on the beach and harass you to go on tours with them or buy stuff. They all act nice, asking your name and such, however they are all just trying to sell stuff and after you say no to 10 people, you get frustrated.

One particular time I was talking with my wife along a lovely beach at sunset, and every 10 meters a new person came up to us to befriend us, sometimes even cutting off my conversation. I know these guys are trying to make a living, but it just sucks due to how constant their pitches are, and that they are on the beach so you cant walk in the waves without them talking to you.

Again, this last part is not the owner's fault and he makes an effort to get these people off you, but he can only do so much.

Other points - rooms are a little basic, but totally acceptable and honestly we barely spent time in the rooms except for a little relaxing on the porch some evenings. Bed is a bit hard, but perfectly acceptable. Cleaning staff were attentive to cleaning the sheets and making the room nice each day.

Never done this before, felt compelled to write something about Langi Langi. I had a week in Zanzibar with my girlfriend, great food (other hotels even recommended it), great vistas, pool etc. Management was world class. Staff were attentive but relaxed. Great place for high mid stay in Zanzibar.

Room Tip: Get the suite called 'Tumbatu'!
