Very good for an all inclusive, including local beers, wine and spirits. The staff are super friendly and try very hard. With the buffet, go for the freshly cooked or the al a carte, much better than on the shelf.

Very spread out hotel on a hill although the hotel does provide golf carts to ferry you around which are very efficient. Beautiful gardens overlooking the ocean and white sands.

We visited Hideaway last week as part of a group and the resort is brilliant. The food is great, the staff excellent, the rooms spacious with all you need. Recommended for anyone wanting to experience something different and in my view better than Mauritius.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa, part of the Emerald Collection Resorts, is located in Nungwi, on the North West coast of Zanzibar, a sensational island setting. Every evening the resort is charmed by dreamy sunsets, where hues of burnt orange and blushing rose are spectacled as Africa`s sun drops into the Indian Ocean. Wander through 10 hectares of enchanting tropical spice gardens, fondly tendered by softly-spoken Zanzibaris and rabble of soaring butterflies. The sense of space is absolute, inspiring freedom, seclusion and quietude: Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa is a the perfect playground for the tired minds of discerning guests seeking the ultimate relaxation and nourishments for mind, body and soul. ... more   less
