We spent 7 nights at Ras Nungwi at the end of 2 weeks of travelling through Africa. Arriving down the bumpy track you're not quite sure what to expect.... we were not disappointed. The ocean front bungalows are spacious, airy, clean and have the most enourmous of beds! and all furnished in typical style. Sabir the chef has worked in...

Ras Nungwi is about an hours drive from the airport. To catch a cab costs about 80,000 shillings. It is on its own beach which has beautiful white sand if a little rocky. There is a great pool area overlooking the ocean and the staff bring you towels and fresh fruit/ juice all day and it is excellent for kicking...

my husband and I stayed here from the 29th October 2012 for 1 week after a hectic week on safari, the setting is beautiful, the gardens glorious and the decor is very tasteful, not to mention the beautiful white sandy beach on your doorstep. The staff there are very friendly, our room was very nice and was kept clean to...

Reading the other reviews, I can't really say anything more about this lovely resort. The food was wonderful, especially the seafood barbeque with unlimited lobster, shrip and crab. Though the dinner is a bit late, starting at 8:00 p.m., and except for hanging out at the bar, there is not much to do after dinner. One word of caution about...

We loved Ras Nungwi! My girlfriend and I booked this hotel as a little reward after our successful climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro! We loved sleeping in tents at temperatures below freezing and the experience was awesome but there is nothing like a little R & R at a beach resort to make the vacation well rounded. From the minute we...

Ras Nungwi is set at the very tip of Zanzibar, about an hour drive from the airport. It sits on a white sandy beach, with a small man made beach above the main beach with plenty of hammocks and sun loungers. There is a lovely pool area overlooking the ocean where the staff bring you towels, cushions, fresh fruit etc...

After much research and reading of Trip Advisor reviews we finally decided on Ras Nungwi and we were definitely not disappointed. This resort is welcoming from the get go. A lovely reception area, a great lounge area by the bar where you can access free wifi, relax in comfy chairs and sofas, play games or read, and a nice dining...

About an hours drive north from the airport, nestled in elegant and peaceful surroundings this small resort is ok but I would not say amazing. The sea view suites are nicely decorated, if you are on honeymoon ask for an ocean suite. The central areas are great, most of the buildings have thatched roofs. Free wifi in the central bar...

It was a bit of a shock to arrive at this hotel after a few days in an intimate safari camp as it felt quite large although to be fair I think it is one of the smaller ones around there. There were however lots of areas for guests to relax such that you could always find your own piece...
