Simply the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed at

This is a beautiful location and good hotel - with just 32 rooms, somehow it felt bigger, as the rooms are well spread out through the grounds.
Mostly honeymooners here, many of whom don't want to mix with other couples, which is a shame. We found ourselves in a routine of getting up early (for some stunning sunrises) and going to bed early... the bar was mostly deserted by about 10.30pm.
The food is superb... chef Lars really knows how to cook and throws some stunning combinations together (chicken and banana soup, anyone?). At breakfast he would usually have fresh out of the oven scones on the buffet.
The wine list is excellent - South African, and not too expensive. Bar prices were also reasonable.
Lunch was not included in our package - but again, not expensive, and a very nice respite from the heat!

Rooms are ok. The bed in our room was huge - about 8ft - which was fine, but unnecessary and took up most of the floor space. Furnishings are basic and I found the bathroom lacking for a "deluxe" chalet. Small but nice balcony with a sofa and chair and ocean view - great place to chill out.

The ocean front rooms are nice, but actually, the ocean is VERY noisy! So that took some getting used to. We didn't sleep well at first.

The service here isn't as personal or warm as I expected for a small place, but still pretty good.

From Ras Nungwi hotel, you can do several watersports (deep sea fishing, diving, snorkelling, sunset cruises). They also have kayaks & windsurfing gear, and if the wind is up, every afternoon you'll be treated to a display of kite surfing by the hotel manager and his pals. In fact, the hotel manager spends a lot of his time enjoying the various recreational facilities at Ras Nungwi!
