Ras Nungwai Beach

Offering this Zanzibar beach holiday on the northern most peninsula, Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel overlooks the sparkling iridescent Indian Ocean.

Prices from £1595.00 per person

This Zanzibar beach holiday hotel is a cluster of whitewashed and palm thatched cottages set in rich tropical gardens. The myriad of pathways are shaded by elegant palms, creating soft sun-dappled walkways between the beach and the accommodation ‘bandas’, the terrace and bar. Ras Nungwi is one of our most popular choices for a beach honeymoon in Zanzibar.

The hotel is situated in a glorious natural paradise. 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.

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.

Lodge rooms have a garden view and both types of chalet room (superior and superior deluxe) have a sea view. The superior deluxe are slightly closer to the ocean being the higher category.  Both chalet categories are fitted with mini-bars.

Superior deluxe chalet rooms also have a CD-player and and other special extras. The flagship accommodation unit at Ras Nungwi is the luxurious new Ocean Suite.

The Ras Nungwi chefs relish the task of preparing elegant and appetising menus from an abundance of local ingredients, including fresh coconut and aromatic spices, the finest array of seafood and plenty of heavenly tropical fruit. Offering a true fine dining experience, Ras Nungwi is renowned for its excellent cuisine. Connoisseurs will also appreciate the extensive wine list, selected to appeal to all palettes and tastes.  With the exception of the French champagnes, all wines are chosen from award-winning South African vineyards.

Pool, table tennis, darts, board games (including Bau, a Zanzibarian favourite) and a TV room are available to hotel guests. Mountain bikes can be hired to explore the hotel’s environs, or you may just want to take long strolls on the unspoilt beach. The SupaDuka Boutique at Ras Nungwi, decorated by renowned artist Kioko Mwitiki, offers a tasteful range of quality gifts, clothing, unique arts and crafts and essential travel items.Tours and excursions to various places of interest can be organised through the hotel. We highly recommend a guided tour of Zanzibar’s historical Stone Town and a visit to the Spice Plantations.

Set in tropical gardens, the hotel’s Peponi Spa offers an array of rejuvenating, pampering and holistic treatments to calm the mind, body and soul. Built with the use of natural materials and designed using only warm tones and simple lines, it provides a calming atmosphere in which to completely relax. Restful music and the subtle aroma of essential oils also add to our spa experience. Qualified professionals conduct all treatments.

The unspoilt beach at Ras Nungwi is arguably the best on Zanzibar and the nearby coral reef yields a beautiful lagoon. Low tides reveal sparkling white coral sand bars and rock pools teeming with marine life. The main beach area allows easy access to the hotel’s swimming pool, beach bar, watersports centre and masseuse.  Beach attendants are on hand to provide you with towels, sun-loungers and refreshments from the bar.

Our Zanzibar beach holidays and Tanzanian Safaris can be tailored to be as relaxing or as exhilarating as you wish. Let us help you plan your next Zanzibar holiday, tailor-made to suit your interests and your budget.
