Ras Nungwi is a piece of Zanzibar heaven. Situated on the northernmost peninsula, it offers guests the opportunity to experience the beach-holiday of a life-time, as well as the chance to experience the magic of the local Swahili culture of the nearby Stone Town.
Ras Nungwi is every divers dream! Situated on the northernmost peninsula of Zanzibar, the resort is located on the Indian Ocean and running alongside a beautifully unspoiled coral reef. Here the marine life is teeming with local fish as well as dolphins and turtles.
Ras Nungwi boasts excellent diving facilities for both beginners and experienced divers and snorkellers – allowing you to explore and enjoy this awe-inspiring marine life up-close-and-personal. Of course, if you’d prefer to keep your head above the surf, why not try your hand at one of the other water-sports on offer at the resort, such as windsurfing, kayaking and dhow excursions around the island.
The 32 rooms at the resort are tastefully furnished in the local style, and allow you to immerse yourself in the varied Zanzibar culture. Each suite is exquisitely decorated with hand-crafted four-poster beds – complete with romantic (and practical) mosquito nets – as well as balconies overlooking either the magnificent tropical garden or the vast Indian Ocean. Enjoy a glass of wine from the resort’s extensive wine-list, and watch the sunset from the privacy of your own balcony.
If you’re feeling brave, why not borrow a mountain from the hotel and explore the island’s magnificent scenery on your own. If shopping’s more up your alley, then head to the quaint narrow streets of Stone Town and pick up some souvenirs to remember Zanzibar by. If you’ve cycled your way through forests, strolled on the beach, or shopped up a storm, why not treat your body to a rejuvenating massage at Ras Nungwi’s Peponi Spa. Feel your everyday stress and worries disappear under the skilled hands of the resort’s trained therapists
