Review №1

Great location in the quiet part of Nungwi. You can see the city as well as the great views of the sea. The rooms are nice and the staff is very welcoming. I recommend staying there for a couple of nights. The food is good and the dancing during the dinner is quite fun ^^

Review №2

Amazing location in the quiet part of Nungwi, short stroll along the beach and you have all the bars and restaurants. Excellent service provided by the staff. Congratulations! The bungalows are comfortable and spacious with huge double beds and a/c. Lush greenery all around. Definitely a place to go back! Thank you for making a memorable holidays

Stayed at this hotel and it was everything I needed and more. My first trip post covid, and it didnt disappoint. Upon arriving I was greeted by Uwe one of the managers there and he literally said welcome to paradise and he wasnt wrong, The resort is on a beach front, when the tide goes out, you see beautiful sandbanks and the most breathtaking views. The sea is super warm even for a morning swim. The rooms are large and very clean, the bed is one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on, the first nights sleep there was so relaxing. Breakfast every morning was fresh fruit and juice with a stunning view of the indian ocean. The staff were super friendly and helpful, always with a smile on their face. Free wifi and towels available for the pool area. Already wanting to go back! Thank you for the most pleasant stay :)

My very first stay in the beautiful Zanzibar was made extra wonderful by the warm welcome and care of the staff of Tanzanite beach resort. Every single staff member was so helpful and actually cared that we had a best time from the moment we arrived! They honestly advised on the best spots, times to head out, negotiated best prices for us and safely transported us wherever we needed to be. The resort is stunning and kept in great condition at all times. If you were ever worried about food... let me tell you! Your jaw will drop every day for the exquisite dishes that arrive on your plate. 12/10 for every meal we ate! The chef was phenomenal- he made our birthday so special with cakes and dances! You name it! The resort felt like home and this was due to all the amazing staff! We appreciate you and will always remember you - Mr GM, Chef Dennis, Smiley Simon, Kind Fazhil, Funny Nelson, Sweet Aaliyah, Rukaya, Lovely Lilian, Rashid and all jamming waitresses!!!

Great hotel. Loved our stay here. Staff are considerate, polite and accommodating.

Review №6

Great overall experience!Super friendly staff from managers to servers. Place has it own perfect,private and clean beach though youll probably need whater shoes when entering the water due to rocks. Place is quite and private.

Review №7

The rooms are nice, the service is nice; hence the 2 stars. Now, the is marked as a beach resort but the beach is stoney which not for swimming or leisure walking, but they do give you shoes if you need to go. The pool is small and filled with salty water. The food is extremely expensive, the portions are small. There is no breakfast buffet, you get 4 options for breakfast with small portions.All in all, great location with amazing view but extremely expensive.

Review №8

The place was nice and quiet. Meals were excellent and the staff were awesome... Only set back are the mosquitoes so be ready with your repellant. Also try to get them to give you insecticide spray for your rooms. The rooms have mosquito nets though. Also had an encounter with a weird roach-like insect in the room, so best u get them to spray the room before u check in and also periodically.... Asides from that, the place was quite good.Pictures below are :- one is the view from our room terrace and the other is one of the resort security guard (they like to hire masai men as guards) with his trusty rungu stick. Many people believe their rungu sticks are infused with special protective powers.PS: beware of the crows, they like to hang in the rafters of the restaurant area and they are quick little things, with a preference for sausages and pancakes... Lolz. So watch over ur food else a sausage may go missing if you turn around to get something at the buffet table...lolz

Review №9

The worst resort for 180$ per room, even though they say they have a private beach. One cannot bathe in it as its rocky. However they give you shoes to bathe but is it the same?The swimming pool is one of the selling point but whats the point of a swimming pool if the water in it is salty? One would expect a stomach filling breakfast but no, wait, they give you 4 combos to choose one from. Thats it! If you want more breakfast, you need to pay for it. Theres not a buffet, so do not expect anything fancy. Atlast, the staff was good so giving it two stars or it would have been 0.Conclusion: Not worth the money. Better to spend some more time finding a good resort.

Review №10

Excellent stay in this resort unbelievable clean and all went so smooth since everybody is very helpful and very nice ..We enjoyed too much we had a great time ..I really wanted to thank every single body working there for their great hospitality and I would give more stars 😅 highly recommended

Review №11

A rather poor effort at appetisers, prawn cocktail was like finding needle in a haystack of iceberg lettuce, fish cakes were 99.9% deep fried mashed potato, calamari almost saved the day apart from the portion size . Needless to say I wont be eating dinner there now...nor will I ever book a hotel room there again.Edit: Breakfast only compounded our disappointment... the following photos show what we faced 30 mins before breakfast closed today...both hot plates empty apart from some potato salad... for 115 bucks a night this is extremely poor...also saw the chef smoking in the kitchen... management needs to wake up.

Review №12

Without doubt one of the favorite hotels I stayed during my time in Zanzibar! We were warmly welcomed, The staff was extremely friendly and flexible, supervisor deserves a special thanks. We had wonderful stay here, which obviously also added up to the experience. Tanzanite beach resort all my desires were sorted.

Review №13

A wonderful place for the guests looking affordable expenses hotels

Review №14

The hotel is located directly in front of the ocean, rooms are big, fully equipped with AC, hairdryer, towels both for the bathroom and the sunbeds. Breakfast is good but the choice of food is quite limited. The restaurant provides a good variety of local dishes but its quite pricy. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. I had a nice stay, however the hotel is very quiete and there are no activities to do. The resort is located 10 min by car from Nungwui, so if you wanna go out you have to take a taxi (about 7 $ one way), since in the surroundings there is nothing to do. To sum up I would say: very nice hotel but not good located. Higly recommended for families or couples who wanna just relax but not for solo traveler or people who wanna experience more.

Review №15

The rooms here were very comfortable and the views were lovely. However, I had some issues such as being checked into my room and being told a while later it was the wrong one so I had to move; food being undercooked; doors are mirrored so a raven comes at 6am to peck at his reflection; no cushions out on the deck chairs; dinner menu not always great and pricey for the quality of the food; too far away from a good beach. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. Showers were hot.

Review №16

Lovely stay in Nungwi, staff very friendly, couldnt do enough for you. Rooms basic but very clean and very nice. Enjoyed our stay here and didnt see much difference in quality between this hotel and hotels such as the Hilton also in Nungwi! Only things I would say that could be improved is if there was a shop to buy things and more activities to do.

Review №17

As I was the only guest in the whole resort the least they could have done was ensure housekeeping did a reasonable job of cleaning the place. Rule of thumb, When the towels are on the floor they need changing

Review №18

Its the best good place calm and clean with good restaurant and nice view. The staff are supper friendly, the room cleaning is in high stander, 16:00 to 17:00 free coffee on the restaurant.I would like to thank Mohammed the restaurant manager for his kindness.Its the best distention if you want live calm.

Review №19

I love this hotel because it’s so relaxing yet they have a tone of activities that the staff will sort out for you. I’ve been twice and I will be going again this year!To wake up with a beautiful view of the pool or the beach is all you really need when your on holiday.. You don’t need to worry if your a picky eater as this hotel has a variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner .The bedroom was so beautiful, tidy and clean.. One the first day, they provided us with a big bottle of bug spray which I found so good as many other hotels wouldn’t.Overall i would tell all my friends and family to go to this hotel, the auidence is for everyone, doesn’t miss anyone out!This is by far my favourite hotel! Thank you

Review №20

Very nice private resort. Rooms very large and comfortable. Could have more variety for breakfast. Mandatory 4 % charge to use credit card not acceptable. Cant pay in cash. Beach awesome!

Review №21

Great experience,beautiful peaceful place very good kept. The service and the crew are wonderful very caring.The beach is good only at low tide.Cleaning could improve.Overall we were sad to leave. Recommended!

Review №22

Great value for money... Staff is great... Loved it!!!

Review №23

The resort is awsome!The rooms are very clean and cosy. The stuff is great and helps in everything we needed.The location is a little bit far from the center and also you cannot go down to the beach because of rocks , but I definitely recommend over this resort and certainly go back again when I be in Zanzibar!

Review №24

Beautiful place. The views are out of this world. You can smell the ocean right away as soon as you enter their premises. I enjoyed my stay.

Review №25

It could be a very special place. It’s Zanzibar and it’s difficult to do bad with this special view on the ocean.The ocean is beautiful but you can’t see it because the bushes and trees.Wi-Fi doesn’t work so much.Room is quite nice but without attention in architectural details.Food is not good and is very expensive for the island; the breakfast is better.If you want to go there I recommend it for family’s group and not for couple.

Review №26

Tanzanite is a nice quiet place especially for holiday reading. The garden is exquisite and just the place for reflections and meditation. However, they are slow and un adaptive to the changing trends in the Hotel industry. That pudding on that old boat at the restaurant needs to be removed like yesterday. The reception some facelift too urgently required.

Review №27

It is very cool place and charming staff

Review №28

Best hotel surrounded with the best garden. Their workers are very helpful

Review №29

Nice place

Review №83

Very interesting and fabulous place! Beautiful ocean views, and close to the side of a good beach for swimming! Delicious cuisine, with a nice Italian chef, and always nice waiters. The hotel staff is attentive and always with a smile, carefully cleaned and changed clothes daily and refilled the water. The ocean is very warm and colorful 🥰👒👍🌺🕺🍸🐫🧢✈️🕶🍫⛱🥥 ♥ ️

Review №84

We were there for 3 nice days. The complex is well maintained and absolutely clean. The restaurant is great and the staff attentive and very friendly. If you disregard a somewhat defective patio door, everything fits there.

Review №85

If you want to ruin your vacation, go right here! Disgusting place with a disgusting operator. Dirty rooms without water pressure, cold water, disgusting food, which will prepare you like an Italian some drunk pulled from the pub. Swimming pool in the hotel spinavy and soaked in salt water. Evil reptiles with many rocks and especially many weirs. Swimming is impossible! If you want to go somewhere you have no chance, because the location is at the end of the world, where there is nothing! Neither shop nor restaurant anything! After 2 days we left this accommodation because we felt very bad and uncomfortable without responding to shortcomings! We had paid € 3,500 on 13 days but they didnt even give us back € 1! The operator, I would like to point out a very nice but very unpleasant gentleman from Germany, who ignored our dissatisfaction! Really very bad experience. After moving to another hotel, we experienced a beautiful holiday and the beauty of Zanzibar in a completely different place! We bought the remaining 11 days in another hotel and there was everything for me! Tasty, clean, nice! I recommend avoiding this place if you dont want to have a hell of a vacation and suffer! Andrej

Cool hotel, staff, country and ocean, and of course fruits.And if it’s all poured under Safari sauce, then you can get full pleasure for several years to come)

Review №87

In fact, I really liked it, the staff is good, the view from the room is delightful, the chef prepares very tasty food, the territory is not very large, but very well-groomed, beautiful, green. I want to come again 🙂👍

Review №88

Great rest, friendly staff, delicious food, unforgettable impressions of the local flavor)))

Review №89

Very good as a hotel apart from the very rare cold water and electricity cuts. More than pleasant staff. Cleaning done every day.

Review №90

Big disappointment. The room booked was not available upon arrival. There is no beach in front of the hotel.

Review №91

Horrible. The room was not fitted with mosquito nets and was filled with spiders and other insects (support photos if necessary). The restaurants food is bland and it takes an average of 1 hour to be served with a hot coke and a plate of cold fries. Especially since the prices are relatively expensive whether it is the restaurant or the price of the night. Hotel very badly located. Each time you have to travel by taxi to get to the center of Nungwi, which adds a lot to the budget. You might as well have a good hotel straight away while being in a good location. The Tanzanite is a hotel to be avoided.

Review №92

Very nice hotel! I do not know why, according to the reviews, everyone responds so badly! He is away from Nungwi! Which is very convenient, there are no locals, the hotel is in a closed area! The breakfasts are delicious. To the village of Nungwi, you can walk along the coast for 10 minutes. On foot. We arrived on 06.03 and are still here now. Our room is Aquamarine. We have been close by on many beaches and have seen many hotels. But here it is very convenient. Yes, someone doesn’t get to swim here because from the beginning there are stones. And people do not like it. But I swam and many swim from the hotel and are happy. Dived with a mask right next to the hotel. I saw fish, hedgehogs, and all kinds of sea reptiles. At the hotel, all the staff are friendly. The rooms are cleaned every day, 2 towels, 2 water, there is a safe, there is hot water. Cleaned up the clog in the shower as soon as it got clogged. In short, if you have a rest, then really only here. As away from the hustle and bustle. Quiet. Real relaxation. And if in Nungwi itself you wont be able to sleep there. And here is a heavenly place. So I highly recommend this hotel. You will not regret!

Review №93

The lunch is not at all the best.The location is great if you want to avoid the crowds of nungwi.

Review №94

Very nice hotel. Nice, helpful staff. Rich breakfast. Large pool.

Review №95

Booked this hotel because they stated 4 stars and have rooms with two beds. When checking in, there were problems with this, which are not mentioned when booking. The hotel staff told me that their double room is a room with one double bed. Rooms with two beds are for 2 adults and 1 child, for such a room you have to pay extra. However, with the help of the staff, the hotel exchanged rooms with a couple of newlyweds, who were settled in a room with two beds, in the end they did not have to pay extra. The hotel itself, like most others, is a few bungalows (2-4 rooms in each) with thatched roofs. The equipment of the rooms is extremely ascetic: concrete floor (in some rooms, tiles) beds (quite comfortable, like pillows), a table, chair, mirror, stools instead of nightstands, a couple of shelves for clothes, there are no wardrobes at all, as well as hangers for clothes, no TV , a broken kettle, a refrigerator for some $ 50, poorly working and leaking plumbing. There is air conditioning, safes are not in all rooms. One towel per person + one beach towel and for the entire stay (10 days) put 1 bar of soap and 1 bottle of shower gel for two people, room cleaning is poor. For a day, they give 1 half-liter bottle of water per person, the rest will have to be bought outside his territory (the nearest shop is 650 m along a dusty road, and when asked to fill a bottle in a restaurant, they refuse, offering to buy it somewhere else). The food in the hotel is monotonous and tasteless, there is no buffet, instead, a choice of 4 similar breakfast options (eggs / omelet, beans, sausages, bread (surprisingly very tasty) several pieces of fruit juice (which had to be asked several times by the waiters) Bring), tea / coffee. Any pastries, no sweets at all. In general, an adult cannot eat. Dinners are also meager and tasteless, they ask to pay extra for a lot. Breakfast was not provided at early check-out. Bought outside the hotel. fruit can be asked to be sliced ​​in the restaurant, it is free. The hotel is located on the edge of Nungwi beach, to the nearest village 1.5 km of a dusty dirt road, to the nearest restaurant 650 m along the same dusty road or 1 km along the shore. The hotel area is clean, well-groomed, beautiful, you can take a walk and sit / lie in the shade and sunbathe.The pool is very small, but the water in it is clean.Beach: at low tide, the exposed bottom is strewn with sea urchins, so you can swim but only in corals at high tide, and that does not always protect against them. The beach, on which you can swim more or less safely, 1-1.5 km north of the hotel, you can safely walk along the shore in 15-20 minutes. There is also a small lagoon on the shore where you can swim with sea turtles for $ 10 (children will love it). Not far from the hotel there is a tiny petting zoo, admission is also $ 10. During the entire stay at the hotel, I never managed to get enough sleep due to the fact that dogs start barking at about 3 am, and from 5 am to this is added a very loud croaking of crows, which does not stop until lunchtime in the absence of sound insulation in the rooms. As a result, the advantages of the hotel include only a beautiful well-groomed area and comfortable beds, the disadvantages are uncomfortable, poorly equipped rooms (plus the constant very loud crows of crows), meager tasteless food in the restaurant, territorial location on the outskirts of Nungwi beach with a bottom strewn with sea urchins. , high cost relative to the services provided.

Review №96

My little paradise🥰Great hotel with the best staff😍About the room: provided with an ocean view, which is very pleased. The room has all the amenities - two huge beds, three mini-wardrobes, a table, a refrigerator, a kettle, air conditioning, a toilet with a shower. There is everything for personal hygiene. Cleaning was carried out daily (there is insect treatment, although all windows and doors are already equipped with anti-mosquito tags). There is a table, chairs and a sunbed on the porch.About the restaurant: everything is delicious. Pleased with the variety of dishes at dinner (I think that everyone will find something special for themselves). There is also a bar with a selection of drinks for every taste))On the territory: a very comfortable hotel. Well-groomed area. There is a pool that is cleaned daily) Rooms are located both overlooking the ocean and overlooking the beautiful garden😊About the staff: well, there are not enough words to praise them. Incredible people with powerful positive energy. They try to make the rest as comfortable as possible🤗 Always sincere smiles and a twinkle in the eyes. Every evening they held incendiary dances💃, during which it was very difficult to sit still 😁Honestly, they left with tears in their eyes .... We had such a good rest and liked everything so much that we didn’t want to leave there.Thanks a lot Tanzanite❤❤❤❤

Review №97

The hotel is on the first line, but you wont be able to swim normally, at low tide the water goes far away and all around there are hedgehogs, at high tide there are big waves and the water hits the stones. The location of the hotel is out of the way! There is no road to him from the word at all ... The breakfasts are poor, the dinners too. Lots of flies! At the restaurant I managed to eat normally at lunch. There is almost nothing around, you have to go or walk for 20-25 minutes ... Cleaning is so-so, towels are not changed until you make a scandal. In general, apart from the color of the water, there are no advantages ...

Review №98

We rested in this hotel for three weeks. The first week, while there were few tourists, was acceptable. Although the portions in the restaurant are half that of competitors, and the prices are twice as expensive. Then the gentlemen from the Caucasus stopped by, the second week out of 7 nights, 5 almost did not sleep. Lezginka and oriental motives in the restaurant at maximum volume started at 11 am and continued until 1 am. The administration does not respond to complaints. The hotel positions itself as 3 stars. Hotels with rooms with a refrigerator, air conditioning and TV should fall into this category. Air conditioning is not available in all rooms, a refrigerator was brought to us for an additional fee, a TV was not seen in any room. To eat and swim, we took a taxi twice a day to the center of Nungwi. Of the pluses, only a very beautiful area and very friendly staff. Its not worth your money, you will have a rest, unless you consider money, are not pretentious in food, and you will be lucky with your neighbors.

Review №99

A great place run by people from Tanzania. Nice family atmosphere and friendly staff who are always happy to help. The place is slightly removed from the main tourist center, which gives a sense of intimacy. At low tide, walks to the lagoon are a must. A beautiful garden and a large plot of land provide a lot of freedom and intimacy even when the hotel is fully occupied. I recommend highly!
