Ras Nungwi 5 star pemba island
Ras Nungwi

The hotel was one of the first to be established in Zanzibar after the government realised the potential for tourism. As a result of this they erected the hotel on one of the best sites on the island - the tip of the Nungwi coastline. Here the hotel overlooks a sparkling expanse of iridescent Indian Ocean. All chalets are positioned to maximise the panoramic sea views and cool island breezes. The hotel, built with natural materials such as palm thatch and fossilized coral limestone, blends harmoniously into the landscape.

There are two restaurants and a beach bar.

The Zanzibarian chef prepares wonderful traditional meals using sauces made with island spices and coconut. It may be fresh line fish one night and curried calamari the next. You can wash this down with a selection of fine South African wines. Meals vary between buffet, barbeque and set menus.

There’s a wide choice of fruit and pastry for breakfast. Lunch is kept light and tasty.

Although Ras Nungwi allows children of all ages they do not specifically cater for youngsters. There are better options on the island for family holidays.

The remote and idyllic beach makes for ultimate honeymoon luxury. If you are looking for a magnificent location with warm and personal service, or simply a place to relax and step out of the world we highly recommend this hotel.
