Ras Nungwi Hotel Zanzibar | Zanzibar Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel
On the northernmost peninsula of Zanzibar
Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel overlooks a sparkling expanse of iridescent Indian
Ocean, a cluster of whitewashed and palm thatched cottages in rich tropical
gardens. Its myriad pathways are shaded by elegant palms, creating soft
sun-dappled walkways between beach and banda, balcony and bar.
Infused with the laid-back, exotic yet ultimately natural spirit of
Zanzibar, Ras Nungwi Hotel is the place to relax and enjoy all that this extraordinary
part of the world has to offer. The lush gardens drop down onto one of the
finest and most unspoilt beaches on the island, which in turn is fringed by
a wide and thriving coral reef.
Ras Nungwi Hotel is situated in a
glorious natural paradise, and our vision is for nature and the hotel to
coexist harmoniously so that guests can enjoy the beauty of the natural
surroundings without forsaking creature comforts. An eco-sensitive approach
has ensured that the delicate balance of land and sea, flora and fauna is
preserved for all to enjoy in the years to come.
The Ras Nungwi Hotel makes use of ancient
local building traditions to create a contemporary architectural space from
natural materials. All main structures are open-air; makuti-thatched
ceilings arch high overhead, allowing all to luxuriate in the space, light
and atmosphere that this unique location affords.
The myriad pathways at
Nungwi are shaded by elegant palms, creating soft sun-dappled walkways
between beach and banda, balcony and bar. The hotel's deck-level swimming
pool is lined with glass mosaic tiles in shades of blue, and commands
stunning views of the Indian Ocean.
Interiors are beautifully
decorated in ethnic style, with inspired use of local fabrics such as
khangas, kikois and kitenges. These cloths form an elegant theme of
cushioned comfort through the many secluded lounging areas, inside and out.
