great location, just 3 mts walk to the beach and 2 mts to the grocery store for local needs. the place is super safe, rooms are really nice and wifi is good. they dont have a restaurant so one must go out for lunch and dinner however breakfast is included in the price and is fairly good.

Even in the new room (Jasmine): - the...

The hotel staff are very welcoming, polite and accommodating and will do anything they can to help you during your stay. They offer...

It was a little difficult finding the resort as it is situated on a dirt road away from most of the "bigger" resorts. But then nungwi is all dirtroad. The contrast between the locals and the hotels is very high. The breakfast was good and the rooms where new and kept very clean. Only downside was that the bathroom filled...

“The rooms on the first floor have nice views, the room that I had (ground floor, first room on the right) was near the entrance so there were people walking past. Also, there was a big bush on the way so \i could not see anything.”
