Casa umoja is a lovely small guest house and family villa few steps from the beautiful beach of Nungwi. There are simple banda directly on the sand and standard rooms in the main building. We splept in the luxury banda and we loved it! The place is small and this maked it more gorgeous and enjoyable. Everything is clean and so warmly and typically decorated. The staff is simply great, full of attentions and extremely kind. They are all ready to help you for everything, even personal stuff that shouldn' t be any of their bussiness.
Breakfast is unforgettable and delicious. A lot of fresh fruit, omelette, bread with jam, a kind of pancake, warm biscuits and fresh made juice besides coffee, tea or milk.
The place is really almost on the beach, few steps and from your room you are in front of the beautiful indian ocean.
We had a wonderful time there, especially thanks to Simona and Mustafa, the special owners of this special place. I would higlhy reccomand people going to zanzibar and not searching for a 5 stars all inclusive village to go there. You will have a great time.
Special thanks for the delicious lobsters we had on request last night of our holiday, prepared in two different ways in spite of the really late request we did for it.
Thanks for everything.

Casa Umoja is a very small guesthouse with a private garden and beautiful large rooms. Although its not situated ON the beach but about 70m away, its a good place to relax and get away from the ever present hawkers. Be sure to visit the restaurant at Union bungalows (in front of Casa Umoja) for their Tsh7000 (around $5) fish bbq dinners!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are bigger and more private.
