We have visited the Hotel Travellers Tiwi Beach Ukunda area twice, and this hotel offers fantastic food choices and a fantastic beach.

get in when we were there.
There were 2 pools connected by a
'river'. We found the top one the quiet one for relaxing during the day -
complete with swim-up pool bar. The bottom one was where for children and a bit
