From Tanzania, we traveled to Zanzibar in order to travel around the island and to research for the upcoming Migrationology Zanzibar travel guide. In Nungwi we stayed at Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel, located on the East side of the village of Nungwi. The resort is located on a private stretch of Indian Ocean beach and offers extreme peace and quiet with great views of the ocean.
Our room faced the ocean, and we could sit on the patio and enjoy spectacular views. The rooms are set up with a little local Zanzibari flavor, and packed with comforting amenities. The Zanzibar style bed in the room at Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel, was indeed one of the most comfortable beds I slept in while on the island. Our room was also equipped with a fridge and mini bar, a hot water heat (useful because I love to sit around all day and drink coffee and tea), and a safe deposit box where I could put our valuables, and it was also big enough to fit my laptop when we'd go on an outdoor adventure.
On the east coast of Zanzibar, the high and low tides are drastically different, but both tides are beautiful in their own respect. At high tide, the water comes all the way up to Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel, crashing against the rocks. At low tide, the water declines way down the beach, creating a good opportunity to put on some reef walking shoes and explore the little pools of calm water.
Here are a few more thoughts about Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel: Incredibly quiet, Stunning views of the ocean, Beach is beautiful, but not the best for swimming, Staff are extremely helpful and service is outstanding, Everything is available on facility (self contained) - so if you wanted, you could do just about everything from Ras Nungwi - stay, eat, drink, dive, spa, tennis etc., there's also a pool table, ping pong table, foosball, and darts. Wi-fi is available only in the communal lounge, not in rooms, While security is very good at the hotel and on the beach in front of the hotel, if you wander in either direction (like towards Nungwi village), you've got to be careful of your belongings - only bring a little cash on you and a small camera. Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel caters to those looking for peace and relaxation, beautiful views of the ocean, and top notch service. It's the type of place you'll want to rotate from eating to reading a book to taking a swim - and repeat - and no one's going to say you're being lazy!
