We stayed at Nungwi Village Beach Resort after having spent 2 sweaty days in Stone Town and we were both pretty exhausted from working hard in the run up to the holiday. This resort is amazing.
The experience started from the moment we arrived where there is a rather grand entrance whereby we were greeted by the owners who were delightful and very helpful without being intrusive.
The stretch of beach that this resort is on is at the far end of Nungwi and borders the start of the fishing village so you get a good mix of locals walking by and plenty of children playing in the sea.
The accommodation is good quality and cleaned on a daily basis. Whenever we did have a problem (such as aircon switching off) it was fixed immediately.
The beach resort is excellent if you are looking to be a short distance from the centre of Nungwi but not in the thick of it (not that it is particularly busy or hectic anyway).
The atmosphere is extremely relaxed and
the views are stunning. If you are looking for good quality accommodation, a
peaceful resort that offers all the quality of a resort but privacy and peace
then you are looking for this is the place.
We stayed in the very end bungalow of the resort towards the fishing village which meant we had max privacy and would recommend you request this bungalow.
At the time we stayed there they were building some more accommodation in the style of flats to supplement the 12 exisiting bungalows so this may change the atmosphere - but having met the owners several times I don't believe this will happen.
