We stayed here for 3 nights (only 1 was planned) and it was just great. The people are just friendly and made our stay very pleasant. It was great to talk to the staff and get informed about anything we need to know in a very polied and discrete way. Thanks a lot for the extraordinary hospitality.

Today's our last of three wonderful days at the Tanzanite Beach Resort in Nungwi. We wish we could stay longer as it's the perfect place if you are looking for very clean and comfortable rooms, really friendly and helpful staff, lots of possibilities to relax (green garden, pool, hammocks and couches, billard table, bonfire) and a zanzibar-typical white sand beach...

Wonderful staff, very hospitable and nice. Loved the cuisine as well (I'm a vegan). Those in love with the seafood will enjoy it to the fullest. Nice bungalows in ethnic style, big beds with mosquito nets. In the evening, you can sit by the fire and enjoy the whisper of the ocean. Very quiet place. Literally empty beach with white...

Stayed here for 2 nights. My girlfriend and I had several hotels during our 2 week stay in Zanzibar. First of all it seemed like a ghost town, but it was low season (end june?).

Overall experience was pleasant. Very friendly & genuine service. The hotel is decent to stay however place itself leaves unforgettable memories. The ocean is like from cinema. Swimming pool in hotel is a great convenience - as you can refresh yourself just two steps out from your boungaloo. Cool destination to visit

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...
