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.

At Ras Nungwi, all 32 rooms on offer are of various room types:

  • Lodge rooms: – have a garden view
  • Superior and Superior deluxe chalet rooms: – have a sea view
  • Ocean Suite: – self-contained unit in verdant gardens, with its own plunge pool and spacious living areas – roof-terrace, open-air sitting room, double bed, and muslin drapes.

All lodge rooms and chalets are tastefully furnished with hand-crafted four poster beds, mosquito nets and indigenous decor, and all have balconies, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, hair-dryers, electronic safes and en suite facilities with deluxe bathroom amenities. 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.
