The rooms were ok, the location was on a quiet stretch of beach in Nungwi.
But the food was really terrible. So if you want to stay at this place, eat somewhere else!! The gardens and the poolarea are beatiful and well maintained. So i would recommend this place but not their food!

Sir, I am so surprised by your comments with regards the food. The first thing our new manager did on his arrival was to employ a very experienced head chef. Between them they designed a whole new menu. Since this has been implemented all the comments we have had about the food have been very complimentary. You have stated the food was "terrible" that is a very broad statement. I am sorry that the food was not up to your standard, but I am pleased you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to write the review. Kindest Regards.

I was truly amazed with Mnarani, both with the Cottages and the Beach. I stayed in one of the sea view cottages it was perfect. The food was excellent and the staff were super friendly and attentive. After reading so much about the tides and the beaches on Zanzibar I was a little concerned about what to expect but I was pleasant surprised the beach was pristine at both low and high tide. I did a snorkeling trip and a spice/Stone Town tour through the hotel and both where very well organised. I could not find anything to complain about. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Although I can not comment on the garden view rooms I would definitely suggest the slight extra cost is well worth it for a sea view room.

Mnarani was particularly stunning. Tucked away in the serene neigbourhood of Nungwi, it was most unexpected that some place so beautiful would be located where it is. The well manicured gardens, the tended lawns, the clean beautiful rooms, the good food the more than friendly staff and the endless list of fun filled activities, just to mention but a few. The new addition of the wooden deck provides an especially beatiful setting for sitting and relaxing as you wait for the tides to surge beneath. Oooh, and the swimming pool is so clean and beautifully done, you wouldnt want to be elsewhere when you have some time to spare. The prisitine beaches are memorable.

Thanks to all the staff at Mnarani, you made our stay memorable. We will surely be back this way very soon.

Violet and Gabriel,
Nairobi - Kenya

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent, especially teh cottages.
