I stayed here for 2 nights and was blown away, the beach is beautiful, the food was just perfect and the staff so friendly. I would recommend RasNungwi to everyone. The room was spotless with a massive 4 poster bed and mosquito net (although I didn't see 1 mosquito the entire time) The pool is really clean and they have... More

I have just returned from my 3rd stay at Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel and it continues to be paradise on earth. The staff bent over backwards to give us the best service - from the reception and the pool staff, to the restaurant and bar staff and the cleaning and gardening people. The waiting staff in the restaurant and the... More

What an amazing location for rest and relaxation!!! The hotel is a nice size and luckily Zanzibar is not overly commercialized. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I recommend half board if you are going due to the somewhat remote location..

I decided to stay in Zanzibar because the name fascinated me when I was young. I discovered something quite unexpected. From the airport you drive through local villages and various markets and at the end of the ride, you arrive in the most beautiful setting. The hotel is absolutely ideally situated, the tropical gardens are meticulously maintained and when they... More

Wonderful place. Hotel intimate. With a private beach. To the sea and the public beach you have to go down the stairs. During low tide, to plunge into the ocean, you need to go far in its depths. The hotel, a diving center, where you can also rent free of charge footwear diving to pass the reef to the sea,... More

The restaurant is very beatiful and very good... More

I stayed at Ras Nungwi with my wife and some friends after going on safari, and for us it was the perfect place to unwind and recharge the batteries before going back to Denmark.
