We stayed here for our honeymoon and were amazed during our whole stay! The staff is so friendly and accommodating and the grounds have everything you could need. We loved the fresh water pool overlooking the ocean, having drinks at the beach bar and lounging in the hammocks. There is also a water sports facility there where we were able...

We recently stayed at Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel for a few days after a great safari in Kenya and Tanzania. We had heard that a few days on the beach is just the thing, after the dusty, bumpy roads of a safari. We did a lot of research to find the best place to stay on Zanzibar, and decided on...

We stayed in a private ocean suite after our safari. If you are looking for a "resort" feel, with little contact with local people, you may find this resort more enjoyable. The hotel grounds were well-kept, but felt synthetic. The ocean suite accommodations themselves may look impressive from the outside, but were very simple overall on the inside. We had...

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days, and it was honestly too short. Lovely staff, lovely facilities, and a gorgeous beach. It's a few bumpy minutes from the main road, but that's the price you get for a quiet, and gorgeous beach front facility. I honestly don't have a single complaint, except for maybe no WiFi...

Enjoyed the most relaxing, fantastic week here in Oct 2012 - cannot rate Ras Nungwi highly enough from location, staff, food and blissful bungalows to the most amazing sun rises!

By far the best hotel ive stayed at in Tanzania. The Ras Nungwi is exceptional in all categories from the great staff to the amazing food. I stayed there for 6 days. There were a mix of other travellers from honeymooners, to singles and families. The hotel is located on the end of the beach, great location very little traffic...

I stayed here last weekend and it was first class throughout. I've stayed at many places along the east coast before and Ras Nungwi really has excellent staff, delicious food, was so comfortable, and for sure has the BEST beach of all.
