On the northernmost peninsula of Zanzibar Island, Ras
Nungwi Beach Hotel overlooks a sparkling expanse of iridescent Indian
Ocean. The lush gardens drop down onto one of the finest and most
unspoilt beaches on the island, which in turn is fringed by a wide and
thriving coral reef. Infused with the laid-back, exotic yet ultimately
natural spirit of Zanzibar, this is the place to relax and enjoy all
that this extraordinary part of the world has to offer.
The hotel is situated in a glorious natural paradise, and our vision is
for nature and the hotel to coexist harmoniously, with guests enjoying
the beauty of the natural surroundings in luxurious lodge and chalet
rooms, and the stunning Ocean Suite. An eco-sensitive approach has
ensured that the delicate balance of land and sea, flora and fauna is
preserved for all to enjoy in the years to come.
The surrounding reefs create one of the most exciting areas to dive and
snorkel, and are home to flourishing populations of dolphin, turtles,
and countless other marine species. The hotel has an on-site fully
equipped PADI Gold Palm 5 Star dive centre and dive adventures are
available for all experience levels including beginners, who can be
trained to full PADI certification by our resident instructors. A wide
range of other watersports is also available.
All 32 rooms are tastefully furnished, with hand-crafted four poster
beds and indigenous decor, and all have balconies, air-conditioning,
ceiling fans, hair-dryers, electronic safes and en suite facilities with
deluxe bathroom amenities.
Mosquito nets over all beds ensure a peaceful night's sleep, with the
sound of the ocean rounding off a relaxing day in paradise. Lodge rooms
have a garden view and both types of chalet room (superior and superior
deluxe) have a sea view, with proximity to the ocean being closer the
