overview

On a deserted beach on the northern tip of Zanzibar stands Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel, which is built from fossilized coral limestone and literally blends into the landscape. An eco-sensitive approach has ensured that the delicate balance of land and sea is preserved so as to enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings.

The hotel's lush gardens are crossed by a myriad of palm shaded pathways which drop down onto one of the finest and most unspoilt private beaches on the island, and which in turn is fringed by a wide and thriving coral reef.

Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel is an ideal location for all forms of water sports and is a perfect diving destination with its proximity to some of Zanzibar's best reefs. It has a fully equipped PADI diving centre on site and a resident diving instructor to ensure you experience the underwater world.

Other activities include mountain biking through the surrounding areas, excursions to Stone Town and Jozani Forest, and a spice tour. If you are keen on relaxing, then long strolls on the very private beach or a soothing massage is a perfect way to unwind.

Traveller Reviews

  • We spent a wonderful week in Ras Nungwi, I wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel really has a wonderful location, the room was good, the staff was helpful and friendly, we didn't have any problem. The food was so excellent that we didn't dare to leave the hotel and have dinner somewhere else, because we were afraid of missing something very delicious.
