10/10 Exceptional

I loved my stay at Aluna Nungwi. The staff was so helpful, welcoming and amazing. The room and pool was perfect for relaxing. The food was great- both at the restaurant at the hotel and the one on the beach. Just be aware the beach near the hotel isn’t the best but you can arrange a Tuk tuk to Nungwi. For me I loved just hanging by the pool and getting massages (which were the best!)

Godt morgenmad og dejligt personale.
Godt personale, god morgenmad. Crowded pool område med begrænset mulighed for at få plads og derfor nødsaget til at gå ned på strand baren og sole i stedet. Udemærket wifi, der dog sommetider ikke virkede (standard på Zanzibar). Tager overpris for transport og ture sammenlignet med andre steder.

Staff: great Room: great Pool: great Food: great Beach: not great at all (you are constantly approached) Walk to beach: not great at all (you are constantly approached). If there could be a way to stop that. Nungwi Beach (and Zanzibar) actually would be a really nice place to visit. We felt harassed and would not recommend Nungwi Beach to anyone. We wanted to stay at the quiet end of Nungwi Beach. We felt we were constantly approached. More on the quite side than on the main beach.
