The service received at Hideaway was exceptional. Each and every member of the hotel was courteous and pleasant at all times. The quality of the food was impeccable and there was always a good variety for vegetarians. The villa suite we stayed in was outstanding with a private pool and the view was amazing. (However the porch near the pool...

We have travelled a fair bit and both my Wife and I agree this is the best location and best hotel we have stayed in (so far). The experience from arrival to departure was excellent. the hotel is beautiful, wonderfully kept and extensive gardens,...

You may have to walk a bit further to get to the restaurants and the beach, but that was truly no big deal. Sand beach is beautiful, just remember that you are near the equator and a little sun exposure goes a long...

Whilst the resort resembles very closely what is advertised on their website (i.e. a gorgeous white sandy beach, cocktails by the pool, a wide range of activities etc.), I have come to realize that I am simply not a resort type of tourist. Others will undoubtedly love it, but our experience at Hideaway of Nungwi just felt a little too...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa, part of the Emerald Collection Resorts, is located in Nungwi, on the North West coast of Zanzibar, a sensational island setting. Every evening the resort is charmed by dreamy sunsets, where hues of burnt orange and blushing rose are spectacled as Africa`s sun drops into the Indian Ocean. Wander through 10 hectares of enchanting tropical spice gardens, fondly tendered by softly-spoken Zanzibaris and rabble of soaring butterflies. The sense of space is absolute, inspiring freedom, seclusion and quietude: Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa is a the perfect playground for the tired minds of discerning guests seeking the ultimate relaxation and nourishments for mind, body and soul. ... more   less
