Hidden gem
My fiancee and I got engaged in this hidden gem. Spotless little resort with quiet and clean rooms, good quality food and plenty of romantic and private corners. The staff organized a maasai ritual for our engagement which made it extra special. The private access to the sea with no one coming from the outsize was also a pleasant factor. The beach is made of shallow water which requires some walking to get to deep waters. Be aware of the sea urchins, but they do warn you and make sure you wear beach shoes! The staff was very friendly and professional. The maasai security guards are super friendly and polite too. Overall an outstanding place.

Relaxing and friendly stay in Nungwi
We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great experience, staying in a beach front villa. The villa had an amazing front garden with pool and sun loungers- almost on the beach, providing great views. The staff were excellent, all very welcoming and friendly and ensured a smooth and comfortable stay. As there are not many rooms and good amount of space, it has a very peaceful vibe- there is not much passing foot traffic along the beach either as it is a little further out from Nungwi than most of the beach front hotels. This does mean you are quite far away from the action- either a long beach walk or 5 minute taxi (we paid around $5 for taxi from centre of Nungwi back to hotel) There are limited dining options outside the hotel - other than neighbouring hotels, but the food at the hotel restaurant was enjoyable and the dinner menu changed daily with several options.Would definitely stay here again!
Alex, gb4 night trip
Very good 8.0
Hotel is well maintained and the location is good. One of the Managers went above and beyond to make our stay extra special, organising a boat trip to a private island and snorkeling on the way. They also always made sure we were set up with transport back to the hotel late at night after nights out. One of the Managers also accompanied us to Stone Town on our way to the airport to personally show us around. What a treat! Food and drinks were good, but service was slow. Pole Pole (slowly slowly) seems to be the way in Tanzania :-) The one negative was the spa. It is not a full spa, but a little open bungalow on the beach. The spa staff are not trained and services are advertised which they cannot provide. If you just want a simple massage, then it's fine, but I would not recommend any other service.

Great Facility, Staff for relaxation
Beautiful facilities, beach, and great service. The area the resort is in doesn’t have a direct view of the sunset over the water, you need to go to neighboring beaches which aren’t far (10 min taxi/walk). Extremely relaxation and great for honey moons. If you’re there for nightlife, I might suggest hotel in Nugwi.

Heaven on Earth
This place was incredible. The perfect quite secluded spot, away from the busy areas of Nungwi, with the same gorgeous views. Would 10/10 recommend for any families or couples looking for a beautiful getaway.
