• Location: Tanzania, Zanzibar
  • Type of Accommodation: Resort
  • Comfort Level: Luxury


The Doubletree by Hilton in Zanzibar allows you to stay in the centre of beautiful Nungwi Beach – which has a reputation for good snorkelling and the best sunsets on the island - while relaxing in all the comforts and mod cons of an international hotel. An hour’s drive from Zanzibar International Airport will deliver you to the cool and well-appointed Doubletree Nungwi resort, which has 96 sea or pool view rooms and two large suites that open onto the sandy beach and warm, turquoise ocean.

Although it has contemporary facilities like a swim-up bar at the pool, high-speed Wi-Fi in the communal areas, 32-inch flat-screen satellite televisions in all the rooms, a babysitting service and a 24-hour gym, the Doubletree’s architecture reflects its unique location: the thatched roofs echo the surrounding palm trees and the carved furniture hint at the Spice Island’s cosmopolitan history.

During the day, head to the beach for volleyball, football, sailing and Jet Ski excursions. Or set off to see some of Nungwi’s best diving, snorkelling and fishing spots. As night falls and the traditional dhows head back home at sunset, enjoy a beach barbeque or dinner at Fisherman’s before trying your hand at classic resort sports like snooker, darts or table tennis.


  • Sea or pool views from all rooms
  • Excellent water sports like parasailing & diving
  • Massage & fitness centre
  • Babysitting service & high-speed Wi-Fi
