Brilliant Little Paradise
Great independent hotel, it was a paradise. Rooms are large and clean. Food at breakfast, lunch and dinner were all of very good quality. The whole place is kept spotless, and the 2 pool areas are a bonus. We preferred the quieter pool at the back, definitely recommend.

The place in Nungwi!
We had 3 nights stay at Aluna hotel in Dec 2019. Aluna is located 5 min from Nungwi beach that you access from a private road. The Hotel has a great garden and 2 pool areas, free wifi, two bar-restaurants, lounge area and small boutique. The hotel it has been renovated and the new rooms are designed beautifully and paying attention to thoughtful touches. The rooms are spacious and very clean, bed is very comfortable and some of the rooms has a great jacuzzi in the terrace/yard. The staff is super welcoming and friendly, and the food is healthy and tasty. We loved the Dorado, one of the tastiest in Zanzibar! Thumbs up to the chef!! Furthermore, the hotel has great initiatives, like selling a beautiful design water bottle that you can refill anytime, reducing the consumption of plastic and taking home a nice souvenir. Just super! The tuk tuk service is a quick, fun, and cheap way to travel to kendwa or nungwi. We wanted to travel longer distances, since it was a really cool way to go around. Once we arrived, we had a big confusion with the room type, but Caroline and Tom, fix it making our stay much better. The only minus was to book the blue safari with the local company. We had a terrible experience and ruin our day. Thanks to Caroline and Tom for cheer us up, they are really kind and great owners. If you are looking for a good hotel in Nungwi, that’s the only choice in our opinion! Mantas and Maria.

Exotic and stylish accommodation, friendly staff
Amazing location, very cozy and exotic with 2 nice pools. Very friendly staff and services, very nice and clean room. We spent beautiful and relaxing 14 days. The food was very good. Thank you Caroline and Tom for giving us the opportunity to sleep outside on the swing bed! :) It was an unique and great experience to see the sky full of stars and hear the sound of the sea! We will always remember!

It was okay
Wifi is if like there’s no wifi. I couldn’t download a photo or voice clip from whatsapp. Sometimes I couldn’t even connect to whatsapp. 20mins walk to village center. Not enough of pool chair. Their food came very slow, waited for an hour and more. Nice staff. Nice pool area. Has hair dryer. Clean. Have a safe in the room.

Beautiful oasis with a great management team
Aluna is truly a little oasis on the quiet side of Nungwi. It’s an easy walk along the beach to get to all the restaurants, bars and shops. We had two unfortunate incidents during our stay there, but the management team handled the incidents well and went out of their way to compensate us occordingly. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at Aluna and would highly recommend it

I definitely would love to recommend Aluna Beach Lodge!! the accommodation was amazing! As this is a small lodge, the staff can focus on guests and offer a more personalised service. Staff was always helpful, have so much knowledge and recommendations. Also, definitely get the chef to prepare you a local dinner and have this on the rooftop patio! amazing sea views and the sunsets are so picture perfect. We stayed here for almost a week. Although the Lodge is not close to the main centre, a quick 10 to 15 minute walk along the beach gets you to all the restaurants, beaches etc. I definitely give alone an all round five star approval! - Special Thanks to The Staff Who Are Absolutely amazing! I felt so welcome here!! Hakuna Matata!!
