Fantastic Place
We stayed for a couple of nights at Flame Tree Cottage and had a great stay there. The rooms were nice, spacious and clean, with hot water at all times. It was located right next to the ocean with great views out to sea. The staff were great and we met the owners who were very friendly. Breakfast was served on the balcony of each room which was a nice touch. Would thoroughly recommend.

Nice Rooms and Lovely View
The rooms are great, and the location is nice - it's right on the beach. The wifi however was very bad. You are given a voucher that says it's valid for 3 days with unlimited access, however, it does not work in your room, or even in many common areas. When asking the staff about it, they told you to talk to the owners, even though it is well within the timeline/usage. I was also quoted a higher rate while dining at the property than the menu listed - twice. We went snorkeling, and it was very nice, and a great rate. Even on a cloudy day, it was a great choice. The decor and vibe of the property is relaxing and nice. I'd go again, but I'd buy data ahead of time.

Великолепные бунгало.
Жили в семейном бунгало. Все очень понравилось. Пляж великолепный, в тихом месте. Территория отеля замечательная , великолепный бассейн, терраса перед бунгало. Утром накрывают завтрак прямо для вас. Комната большая , кровать мягкая, большая ванная. Неплохая уборка. У нас была своя машина , нам позволили ее припарковать на охраняемой территории. Хозяйка англичанка, приветливая, помогает советом при надобности. Влево от отеля много ресторанов и баров. Дважды ужинали в ресторане при отеле, очень вкусно- советуем.Мы остались очень довольны и обязательно вернёмся. Спасибо

En annerledes hotellperle
Et hyggelig familiedrevet hotell med fokus på at gjestene skal trives og ha det bra! Hotellet består av små ‘hus’ på et eget område, og det er stille og rolig på selve resorten. Fint og skjermet. To ganger om dagen kommer det en flink yogainstruktør til hotellet. Dette er ikke inkludert i oppholdet, men verdt å få med seg!

Veldig blide, hjelpsomme og imøtekommende ansatte! Fin beliggenhet med kort gåavstand til fine badeområdet og restauranter. Rommene var fine og rene, men på grunn av luftfuktigheten så lukter det litt mugg.

Peaceful oasis in beautiful Nungwi
Incredible stay, like a piece of heaven located in the most beautiful surroundings. Hope I will be able to return one day, and stay longer. Simply amazing!

Bello ma si potrebbe migliorare
L'hotel é bello ma c'é da migliorare come ad es. per la colazione servita nella veranda del bungalow sarebbe comodo poter ordinare in giorno prima indicando l'ora del servizio in alternativa si dovrebbe garantire che un cameriere giri con frequenza fra i bungalow per prendere le ordinazioni (non essendoci telefoni). Il set di cortesia in bagno era presente solo all'arrivo poi non piú rimpiazzato. L'asciugacapelli anche se da prenotazione dovrebbe essere presente in camera nella realtà non lo era e su richiesta ci é stato detto che in tutto l'hotel ce ne é uno... Ma non ci é mai stato portato. Per il prezzo pagato si dovrebbe fare attenzione a questi particolari! Per il resto la struttura é pulita, l'ambiente é confortevole e tranquillo a due passi dai migliori ristoranti di Nungwi e sulla spiaggia
