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.

Garden View Room

Each of the 96 well-appointed rooms have vistas of either the sparkling swimming pool or azure ocean from their private balconies, and are filled with Zanzibari-inspired furniture and art that is complemented by luxurious linens, down comforters and extra-large pillows.

All rooms have beverage stations with mini refrigerators, in-room safes, hair dryers, individual temperature control, electronic door locks, direct-dial telephones, 32-inch flat-screen satellite televisions, MP3-connected radios and ironing facilities.

The en suite bathrooms all have showers (selected rooms have bathtubs) and high-end Crabtree & Evelyn amenities.


The Doubletree Nungwi Resort offers you fast Wi-Fi, a same-day laundry service, babysitters (there is also a kids’ swimming pool with a slide) and a 24-hour fitness centre. Book a massage or try your hand at any of the several water sports on offer, which include diving, snorkelling, sailing, Jet Ski rides, parasailing and deep-sea angling excursions. There are also facilities for beach volley ball, water polo, beach football, snooker, darts and table tennis.

There is a boutique and gift shop, as well as a currency exchange bureau. Shisha pipes are available from all the bar outlets.


After your ‘Wake Up Doubletree breakfast’, you can enjoy seafood – like grilled prawns washed down with local coconut water – from Fisherman’s Beach Bar & Grill. The Dolphin Pool Bar serves drinks, snacks, salads and pizzas until late, while once a week the hotel hosts a themed barbeque at the beach or pool, weather permitting.
