Guest Testimonial

Please be informed that I have been provided with assistance from the same consultant over the past 3 or 4 years (Ben Harrison). His service is fantastic and that is one of the reasons why I have been using A & K services for the past 25 years.

A cluster of whitewashed, palm-thatched cottages in rich tropical gardens overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean, Ras Nungwu Beach Hotel is the ultimate place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings without forsaking modern comforts. The luxury property stretches out across sun-dappled garden paths on a stretch of coastline fringed by a thriving coral reef that is teeming with marine life.

All 32 rooms are tastefully furnished with hand-crafted four-poster beds and ethnic style interiors created using local fabrics such as khangas, kokois and kitenges. The elegant rooms all benefit from balconies, air-conditioning and deluxe bathrooms, while the private detached Ocean Suite offers a private plunge pool and spacious living areas, making it ideal for couples and families alike.

Home to one of the most unspoilt beaches on the island, Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel is ideal for lazy days on the beach. Activities offered by the on-site watersports centre include snorkeling, kayaking and traditional dhow cruises, or you can head off and explore the nearby reef, lagoon and rock pools. The property also affords a traditional makuti thatch restaurant and bar as well as a deck level swimming pool offering views of the ocean.
