great place right on the beach
We were very happy that we chose to stay here on our recent trip. The hotel is right on the beach and all the staff could not be more helpful, accommodating and welcoming. It was very nice also that the General Manager (Julie) personally welcomed us and took an interest throughout our stay in ensuring that we were happy with everything. We were on a bed and breakfast basis which suited us perfectly, we ate both in the Hotel and local area and can recommend both. All in all a very nice place to stay in Nungwi.

It is the best hotel in Nungwi! (We’ve visited a few other ones for dinners) great food, rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The swimming pool is great with a view of the beach and staff is super friendly. Great view of the beach from the breakfast restaurant which makes a wonderful start of the day!
