The staff was very helpful and kind. The rooms were very clean and peaceful. The grounds are clean and beautiful. I enjoyed every meal at the hotel. This hotel is great for a quiet getaway. The hotel isn't far from Kendwa beach where you can swim easily with rocks.

Hotel Zanzibari is a small and intimate hotel. The staff provides personal and dedicated service to guests. For example: we had changes in flight time and the crew helped us in dealing with the local branches of the company.The hotel area is well kept and landscaped. The rooms are clean and well kept. The beach near the hotel is clean and beautiful and the stay at the hotel is very pleasant. I recommend the place and the good atmosphere it produces.

The Zanzabari was great! Very peaceful and it felt like it was just for us. The only drawback is that it was quite a ways from the main beach (some might call that a plus!!) Food was great. Service was better! Rooms were spot on. 5 stars

This cute small boutique hotel is a total gem. Beautiful beach front and can swim straight out at high tide. Sunrises are amazing. Pool is perfect size and very few people around. Great for a more relaxing and private holiday. The village is a short walk away 20mins however low tide with seaweed stink isn’t so fun. Lol
The staff are beyound nice and friendly. Housekeepers are exceptional. Much better than a 5 star clone hotel.

We had an amazing stay in this hotel in Nungwi. The hotel is in a very good location in Nungwi, the beach is small (more intimate) but the water is great, so blue. It is also very close to the Jety restaurant which is amazing, a place to visit. Perfect hotel for couples, very quiet and intimate. The service is great too, people are very polite , smilly and care about you. Hotel and room are very clean, there is also a great garden. Definitly recomended. Special recommendation with this hotel: visit the Nungwi village.
