Think twice if you go to that area- very secluded! Nungwi with its nice beaches is 3km away. You have to take taxi every time when you need to go to village (buy fruites, souvenirs,change money, go to restaurants). To go by foot is possible only when the sun is not active, unless it's hell (open field, no shadow) The...

We stayed for two days at the hotel in January. Hotel has a very beautiful inside premises and sea view. We ate at many places in Zanzibar and Tanzanite had one of the best combinations of food for any choice and taste. Even sometimes adjusting to a foreign cusine might be challenging, tanzanite offered a great variety of choices and...

We arrived at the 31st of december. The hotel it self is beautifully located next to the ocean and all the small houses, restaurant etc also look very nice! Than we arrived at our room and there it smelled like a cat had just urinated in it. When I went complaining to the manager he said he would take care...

We spend a week at the Tanzanite which was truly unforgettable! We met there to surprise a friend for her birthday and some of us didn't see each other since months. All of us were seeking for relaxation and calmness to get the most out of the time we had together - and that's exactly what we found at the...

For the money it is ok. No a/c, very erratic wifi and no access to the beach because the sea washed up the steps. A very basic hotel in a good location. The staff were all very obliging. Unfortunately communication was not easy as some of the staff's command of English was not great. All in all it was a...

The location is absolutely beautiful. It is literally paradise with clear blue water and white sand! Be sure to sit on the beach as the tide comes in as the rocks creat tiny private beaches that are just incredible. The staff here were fantastic especially if you make an effort with them. We noticed a few rude and dismissive guests...

What a wonderful surprise in a divine location for our 7 night stay! With its quiet and serene location about 3km out of the centre of Nungwi, Tanzanite has the most beautiful views of the ocean.

I am writing this review from the comfort of my sun lounger away at last from Tanzanite Beach Resort!!! We had booked 4nights here but left after 2nights and it was worth the loss in money! Upon checking out early the manager-James-never even bothered to ask the reason why and it was easier not to get into it with him....
