Fodor's Review

Although the standard rooms are somewhat plain and located in a two-story block, they all have balconies overlooking the beautiful gardens and, on the upper level, the turquoise sea beyond. There's an infinity pool, plenty of lounge chairs scattered around in various nooks and crannies, and three smaller plunge pools overlooking the ocean. At low tide you can walk along the beach to Nungwi village. The five course dinners, included in the rate, are consistently excellent and always include a seafood option. Meals are taken in a soaring, open-air thatched banda, with a quirky bar made out of a dhow in one corner. As there are only eight rooms and 3 suites, the hotel has an intimate boutique hotel feel. The suites, located closer to the ocean, are extremely spacious and offer good value.
