Comfort and Tranquility
"We loved our 2 night stay at Mnarani Beach Cottages. The staff were so helpful and accommodating during our stay. The food was delicious as were my fun "umbrella cocktails". We loved walking on the beach and swimming in the ocean. We also enjoyed walking around the village of Nungwi. The sunsets were incredible from here. We could have easily stayed longer."
"Great location, quiet but walking distance from beach restaurants and bars in Nungwi beach. Amazing sundeck in front of the sea. Staff extremely helpful. Property was clean and tidy. Food was good as well."
"The staff at this place are so special. The deal that includes breakfast and dinner is such great value. The food was nice - a decent spread. A bit far from the main public beach, but it has access to the sea from the deck albeit on to reef at low tide and water at high. The deck is incredible: watching the sunset and moonrise over the water while eating dinner every night is lovely"
"We had such a great trip! The rooms were clean and large (we had a family apartment). The overall feel was simple but extremely relaxing. It’s small enough that you are well taken care of, but not overrun with tourists and salesmen trying to book excursions. The view is unbeatable, and to read in a hammock overlooking the water is just perfect! Andrew took care of us with meals, which were healthy and varied."
"Firstly, full rating goes to the staff. If it was not for them. My vacation would not be complete. Khalid the manager has managed his team very well. Including Khamis and Jumma at the bar who are very eco-friendly and extremely welcoming.. Best place to stay in Zanzibar."
