14 bungalows set amongst gardens although none with a sea view. Friendly but faintly disorganised. Bungalows are excellent with shower, large bedroom and small room with fridge, kettle and toaster. Restaurant/bar serving lunches and dinners (17,000 - 20,000tzs) with tables overlooking the sea. Also a dining room which bizarrely is not used with breakfast being served to the balcony of...

pictures are better than reality, but not here!!!The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, even on the balcony it's nice to spend time and cosy (with a perfect sea view ). The garden even the whole complex is beautiful, build with loads of love I feel. I'm really happy we found that place by just walking on the beach.

We have just come back from an amazing ten day holiday here. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable, ours was two bedroom, each with en suite with a lobby area with a fridge, toaster and kettle. There is a big verandah with tables and chairs, hammocks and a comfortable day bed. Breakfast is served here every morning, a choice of...

In contrast with the commercial excess of the large branded resorts in the area, the Flame Tree operation has a warm and personal atmosphere that was thoroughly enjoyable. The cottages are scattered throughout lush gardens filled with African plants, giving an authentic feel without any of the nasty stuff you also run into on Safari. Breakfast of your choice is...

We only stayed for one night during our cycle tour around Zanzibar. When we arrived there was no one at reception desk. After a few minutes someone came and showed us our room. The room was not ready yet, so we had to wait a bit ( which was not a problem at all ), but the reception guy dissappeared:...

I love this hotel, the beach is just seconds aways from the hotel, and i can tell its one of the best parts of the beaches in Nungwi. The water is clear blue, just beautiful. Although we did not had a sea view from the room, the room were perfect between the gardens and in front of the pool. The...

After a dusty safari or a rigorous climb, this is the ideal place to relax and unwind. Lovely cottage-like rooms with breakfast served on your own verandah, a friendly, helpful staff, charming owners, a refreshing pool and a calm, welcoming ocean all combine to make this the place you don't want to leave. The waterfront restaurant serves better food than...

I spent almost two weeks in Flame Tree Cottages and truly enjoyed my stay there. The place is like an oasis of calm and peace. For me everything was perfect. The rooms (mine was called Rose) are very nicely decorated and kept clean. The garden with it’s trees and flowers, the pool and the hammocks is wonderful. Breakfast was rich...

Nice hotel in Nungwi a few steps from the beach. Great pool area and wonderful garden. Nice restaurants are located a short walk along the beach. The restaurant/cafe/breakfast service at the hotel is incredibly slow and disappointing.

We recently stayed at the flame trees cottages for 6 nights and had a great experience. The cottages are spotlessly clean, very comfortable and all have nice big terrace seating areas. The staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to solve any of our queries - even remembering us by name throughout the week which is a small thing...
