“Outstanding beach resort!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

a holiday in Zanzibar? Hideaway at Nungwi is the place to unwind..... beautiful beautiful place... once inside you feel like you're away in a remote location where everyday routine ceases to exist... the food is delicious, mouthwatering sea food cuisine, Italian restaurant serves the most amazing pasta dishes and the pool stretches out to infinity.... the only reason i did not give this 5 stars is because it doesn't really have much of a beach. However once you're in the hotel you don't really care about the lack of beach. The rooms are large and spacious and beautiful. Would definitely go back sometime.

Dear Nabata, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. I will pass on your comments to the Chef and his team, I know that they will be pleased to hear that you were happy with the food offer. Regarding the beach, unfortunately at the beginning of this year we had some strong weather conditions and the beach was affected. I am happy to read that it wasn't a bad impact on your holiday and you did enjoy your time with us. Thank you once again for choosing Hideaway of Nungwi for your stay, we hope to welcome you again in the near future. Kind regards, Nora

Jambo Jambo everyone! We were on our Honeymoon Stayed at Hideaway of Kungwi for 5 nights after our safari in Maasai mara. once arrived at Kungwi - the service from the moment we checked in was First Class!! The place is Heaven!! So so beautiful that I m finding it hard to express in words!! Each and every staff we came across were so friendly, kind, & absolutely lovely people to have around. The restaurant manager Shaban & his staff were exceptional with their service & it was always with the lovely smile!! A special mention to The Captain of the restaurant Machano iddi who made our Dinner on the Beach extremely special- very kind person!!! Going on the food & drinks - once again AMAZING! First time we went all inclusive and it wasnt disappointment at all!! Breakfast, lunch, dinner & cocktails - fab fab!! My husband is a vegetarian & always had plenty of tasty choices. O & I have to mention the grilled lobsters I had - seafood lovers- have to try it out!! Going on to Spa- m very fussy person when it comes to choosing a spa! we had complimentary back massage- and they are very good at it!!hence I booked African body massage next day to treat myself! Its was out of this world!! I can go on and on about this place! Lol We have already looked at booking back for next year for our anniversary- CANT WAIT!! Thankyou once agian to Hideaway for making it so special For us xxxxxx

We spent 5 days here after our Safari! I can't say enough good about the hotel but even more about the people. The staff from the waiters and waitresses to the GM of the Hotel. Everyone did whatever they could to make our stay memorable. Where the language or just understanding was a few times a struggle it was more than made up for with an eagerness to help and to please. The GM was always out and about working and speaking with guests which is not something you see everywhere!
Lastly I want to say thank you to Lucie in Guest relations. We spoke with Lucie on a number of occasions and she always went above and beyond to help us out.
I highly recommend the Hideaway and If I ever get back there I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

We just spend 12 absolutely wonderful days at Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we arrived in Heaven. We could not have dreamt of any better place for our vacation. Everything lived up to our expectations in any way. The staff is very friendly and helpful to an extend we have not experienced any other place. Surroundings are stunning and the sea is crystal-clear and warm. Food is varied and very delicious and there is something for any taste.
Hopefully we will get a chance to come back and visit some other time - we miss everything and everybody there!!!

We flew with Oman air via Muscat. Very good airline. We had a private pickup from the airport and the driver was waiting for us just after we got through baggage claims. We got a very warm rececption at the hotel. Nothing was too much for the staff. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and try to help in anyway they can. The guys at the pool get very upset if you try to the towels on the beds yourself! The rooms are large and well proportioned with just about everything - a washing line in the shower would be handy to hang up wet swimming clothes. We had a larger room with butler - lovely lady who kept popping in with treats. We enjoyed the food although after the first week we had seen pretty much everything on the buffet. The pastas and pizzas are excelent. What we would like to have seen at meals would have been plain rice - rice was always stir fried often with seafood which is great but not every meal. The hotel is beautifully layed out with very well kept gardens. The beach was covered at high tide whoch meant picking the right times to go for a stroll but the newsletter we got each evening had details of the tides. Not sure if the sea always comes up so high we were there over a full moon. The pool and spa are very eye catching and the jaccuzzi in the spa is a great place to relax if you want more peace and quiet (there were quite a few children in our second week). All in all a great place to relax. Would certainly reccomend this hotel. I think the only really negative point was the bed - much too hard but that is a matter of taste.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more for a room with butler - they are also closer to the pool as the hotel is on a deceiv...

We just came back from a weeks holliday with the family in Hideaway and I has been an amazing experience. We decided to take advantage of the buttler service and I must say that Alonsia and Menladi did more then an amazing job to make us feel like home. The service and outsanding food is unparralled vs any holliday resort I have been to.

Also, I applaud the management for having decided to take Andrea as the leader for the hotel diving center. The service you get in the diving center is outstanding and the advise my suns got during the courses was perfect.

The only advise I would have is to upscale the music at night as it was mostly repetitive in lyrics which can become a nuance if your are 7 days on there.

Room Tip: Choose a room with buttler service- 152/153/151 were all great

The staff and management of this lovely hotel could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable.
There are several different standards of villas but they are all good, We wanted to be near to
the main pool and restaurant. We did stay in the main villa with its own pool and Jacuzzi due to an upgrade. If
you are looking for something special this is it. My husband doesn't eat meat and the chef came every day to see what he would like to eat in the way of something special but there are several
restaurants and the food is excellent in all especially the Sushi restaurant which even though my
husband says he doesn't like was his favourite.. The manager and his wife are really charming and are on hand to chat and make sure that all is as you would like and expect. Lovely pool area
and great coktails...Lots of water sports and lovely people at the marine booking office. The advantage of this hotel is that the tide does not go too far out and you can swim all day unlike many areas where you are left with reef due to low tides. Lovely walks along the beach to the
village.

Room Tip: Choose the best you can afford near to the pool and restaurants with a sea view Although this prop...
