Mnarani Magic
Beautiful hotel, private and not surrounded by any other hotels, friendly staff, good food. Lush gardens and great sea views. Plenty to do in Nungwi. Swimming with turtles was amazing! Great experience to watch dhow builders perform their art with wood. We booked an extra night at the hotel at good rates!

The staff is so friendly. They put nice touches on everything and make sure to constantly check on you. I left at 6am and they packed me breakfast without me asking. They have an on-site your company that provides quite a few of the memorable Zanzibar tours

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Interesting bathroom set up in the rooms that weren't individual lodges. No privacy due to open glass. Wasn't really an issue for us but could see it being an issue for other people. Everything else though was good, not a bad place to stay by any means. It was quite nice. If you're someone who likes to stay in the room maybe look elsewhere. We aren't like that so it wasn't a problem.
