Several nights we went to the beach and enjoyed looking at the stars in the sky. So beautiful! There were places in the Villas...

This is a perfect place for a course, family gathering or retreat of any kind. Food was most vegetarian, fish or chicken. No meat and no alcohol, but there...

We visited at a low time so we had an entire villa to ourselves. Mohammed was very attentive to our needs. It was so helpful to have him arrange our excursions as it is very difficult in Africa to know who you can trust. He works with local vendors and handles all details. You need to understand (as an American...

We loved the villa's location right on Matemwe beach, the pool, friendly and helpful staff, having meals cooked with real care and flavour, and the beautiful grounds of the villa. There are so many nice sitting areas outside from hammocks to comfortable beach recliners, and we felt very relaxed in the beautiful buildings itself. We choose this place as profits...

We had a family reunion at Tamani villas last month. We stayed at the villas for 4 unforgettable days. The accommodation was very comfortable. Food and service was exquisite and the scenery from the beach, gardens and general environs was breathtaking. We had an amazing and very memorable 4 days and would recommend Tamani villas to anyone! Thank you Tamani...
