The staff at Zanzibari went above and beyond to make my stay a trip to remember. The food was incredible and the room was lovely. I had the best mattress in my room and I wish I would have taken a look to see who it was made by! The acrobatic group who entertained us one night was so cool,...

In February my husband and I stayed at the hotel. The hotel is small and cozy, the staff is very friendly and service at the highest level. The hotel grounds are very beautiful with views of the ocean. In the restaurant, very tasty food and wine. We love it. Thank you very much for an awesome stay.

Had a great time at Zanzibari. Facilities not upmarket but sufficient. Location is perfect out of the busy Nungwi Village. Manager negotiated very good deal for us for snorkelling at Mnemba island. Staff in general very friendly and helpfull. Only had breakfast here which was OK. All things considered maybe a bit pricey but if you want to get away...

A very quiet and beautiful getaway. It's like having your own private beach! The staff was very polite and helpful. The food was excellent and the beer was cold. Only one bedroom had AC but it really didn't matter since we spent most of the day out on the beach or in the water. Highly recommended!

We stayed at The Zanzibari 10 nights to soak up some sun and enjoy the calm. The hotel is on the quiet side of Nungwi, on the east coast. This means big tidal differences with the chance of long walks out to sandbanks and the reef during low tide. You can also walk aong the coast to the village on...
