“great holiday”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Relaxed there for 6 glorious days with my two sons after a Safari . Very friendly staff , location , cleanness and restaurant services made it unforgettable .Happy to recommend to others. Being off-season we feel that they tried a bit harder and had the time to offer more attention to everybody, Tried different restaurants along the beach but dinner at the Langi Langi has nothing to be shy and we could see why it attracted dinners from other places too.

Room Tip: Sea view of course !

This is our 7th Trip to Langi Langi and safe to say it is like a home from home, nearly all of the Staff are the same as when we travelled there first (a great sign of good management) everyone remembers us and it is the personal touch that we really enjoy. Food is excellent and often times when you fancy something a bit different from the menu all you do is ask and they will cook something special for you with your suggestion in mind. Sele the Manager is excellent and does the rounds every day and evening ensuring all guests are completely happy, he is passionate about his food and the service that he provides and it is very evident that his enthusiasm spills out to all his staff in that they cannot do enough for you he is also very funny and witty !!!! we stayed a total of 17 nights this time and started to notice the changeover in Guests, people would eat there first night then try somewhere else and then they would be back for the duration of their stay with guests from other Hotels queuing up for Tables, most times the Restaurant was fully booked with reserved signs on all best tables (which are all the tables as it is built on a deck with the ocean flowing under where you eat). We are never disappointed with our Stay in Langi Langi and will continue to come back year after year, the Rooms (we always go for the seaview) are spacious with large double bed, couch, armchairs, coffee table, fridge plenty of Hangers, Safe and very large Bathroom, there is also a lovely patio area right outside your door where you can sit and enjoy a front row seat to amazing sunsets, all the Rooms are typically Zanzibar Style as is the whole complex, beautiful gardens with beautiful flowers, plants etc miles of white sandy beach literally on your Doorstep. The food is very reasonable excellent price for excellent food. We would highly recommend it for people not wanting to stay in the bigger hotels who want to genuinely want to experience a bit of real Zanzibar in a Safe/Beautiful Boutique Hotel.

The athmosphere is so nice and relaxing . Staff is very friendly and helpful!
The restaurant i am sure is the best on the beach! Don't miss the King fisk in lemon butter sauce
I will for sure renommeet to book a room with sea view as it's really worth the money! Ask for a room on 1st or 2nd floor if possible, as they are nicer than the ones on ground floor.
My biggest recommandations for this nice little place
Weather in start march, mostly clowdy we experienced.

We stayed 5 nights, Royal suite (the room was really big, with a balcony over the ocean, comfy bed and a massive bathroom which had a strong pressure in the shower and very hot water).

I booked directly through website, after raking Tripadvisor back and forth in a search for the best place for the wedding on Zanzibar. So I had a chance to communicate our requirements directly to the hotel's management.
Everything was performed to our last word - the big double bed, the dinner options, the decorations, and the service - all was done at the best level they could! It's a character hotel, fairly small, well managed and with a relaxed atmosphere.

Hotel was quiet at night, no loud music, mostly adults, and since we were not looking for partying time, so it was perfect. The food was really good, fresh fish/sea food, meat, veggies and big choice of fruit, and not expensive. And they sell alcohol there.

One suggestion I would make though - I do think having fried eggs on the buffet (rather than 'to order') would make it easier for the hotel staff and for the guests. Because almost everybody wanted eggs! And the coffee could have been better...

But these are insignificant things, the hotel was counterbalancing those tiny aspects with friendliness and small touches, like free sparkling wine, a traditional 'zanzibari door' gift personalised with our names, and the hotel's people were jumping out of their shoes to make us happy.

This is the place for those who want to be very close to the beach and the ocean, who wants to see the amazing sunsets burning down into the water every night, and who doesn't like the large crowded hotel-villages but prefers an atmosphere of a boutique place.

Beautiful little place in great location in the centre of west Nungwi. Rooms are basic but nice and clean and much better value compared to some of the other options next door (at Amaan you pay 125$ instead of 80$ for the exact same kind of room, but at Amaan they call it "deluxe room"). The sunbathing area is small however and crowded with sun beds. The restaurants also excellent, great good also at good value compared to other places. Restaurant staff could have been friendlier, front desk staff was very nice and helpful.

We stayed in a sea view room with an awesome ocean view, loved it. The room was very clean, spacious with AC. Definitely best mid budget place to stay in Nungwi. The beach here is incredible and whilst not so tidal as the east coast was slightly rocky at low tide but this may be seasonal. There are a lot of hawkers but all good natured and a polite lack of interest is enough for them lo leave you be.
Good opportunity for terrific snorkelling close to the private island Mnemba cheaply. We paid 20$ each for 4 hrs boat/ snorkel including lunch, arranged and departed from beach in front of hotel.

Room Tip: definitely ask for sea view!

My boyfriend and I traveled to Langi Langi Beach Bungalows as part of our adventure with Ahsante Tours. When we arrived, we noticed the front staff wasn't very personable, and we also had a hard time getting our room. They asked for my name, and they didn't have any record of it in their books. After giving them my name, my boyfriend's name, my tour company's name, my tour contact's name, and my trip itinerary from my tour company, they still seemed to not have any record of anything. Without saying much, they had me fill out a registration card (not knowing if we even had a room), and then told us our room was not yet ready and that we'd have to wait. It was 1pm. We sat down on one of their couches adjacent to the dining area for just over an hour with our luggage, and nobody had come yet to let us know our room was ready. My boyfriend walked over to the front desk to check in on things, and they said our room was now ready, and they would show us the way.

Our room was beautiful and had a balcony overlooking the deck and ocean. There was air conditioning and hot showers, which was great. The actual hotel is nice and relaxing, and we had a great time just relaxing on our balcony and walking along the beautiful beach.

I was very happy with our room and with the complementary breakfast we had every morning. However, I was a bit disappointed with the staff. It seemed that they were very busy, and they weren't very personable (ex- not asking how we're doing, smiling, saying hello, etc.). They were helpful if we needed anything, but they seemed difficult to approach at times.

All in all, I did enjoy my stay at Langi Langi Beach Bungalows. The room was great, the atmosphere was relaxing, and the beach was gorgeous. However, if I were to come to Nungwi Beach again, I may try out another nearby hotel since the staff didn't seem quite as hospitable as expected. We are very laid back and are not hard to please.

We traveled to Tanzania in January/February 2014.
