Nice looking hotel, beautiful beach. We encountered some issues and will not be returning to this location. The dinner menu is not very varied but food is good. We had issue with the amount of mosquitos in and around the hotel, and unlike other places we have frequented there appeared to be no spraying whatsoever. If you have any issues...

Room was beautifully appointed with two beds as requested which worked great for my daughter and me. This hotel setting is breathtaking. On the north shore of Zanzibar, a lovely beach with white sand and beautiful water. We preferred the pool to swimming in the ocean, but walked the beach every morning enjoying the creatures, shells and treasures that washed...

My wife and I loved Ras Nungwi. The service was great, food exceptional. The ambience is just perfect. The rooms are cool, perfect to relax. Had an awesome time. If there's a hotel whose strength is on the guests, it's Ras Nigel. We are planning to visit soon.

The resort is well kept with a cottages and...

Stunning beaches that are romantic and peaceful. Beautiful rooms that are very comfortable--bordering on luxurious. Amazing amenities. You can book any activity you like on site. Small gift shop but the prices are comparable to Stone Town. Excellent service for drinks and food from pool or beach and amazing dinner service. The chef even prepared the dorado my husband caught...
