“Whaooo!!! Paradise”
Reviewed 29 December 2009

We arrived to Zanzibar two days after the main electric cable to the island bursted. We were afraid that that will spoil our vacation. But not, we were all day out for trips, beach and sailing, and when retuning to the hotel the generator worked well and ther were ligth and air condition.
The hotel is in the north of the islnad near the most beatiful beach, sandy, white.
The service was excellent, and the food delicious (we tried some other restaurants nearby and in the city and returned to the hotel) Sele the owner buys every day fresh fish from the fishermans and prepare it with delicious spices from Zanzibar.
Everything that we asked for we receive with smile from the staff. Also things that we didn't ask like fresh cold pinneapple near the pool, coconut from the tree near the beach.
Last nigth stay we receive a surprise from Sele, a botlle of champagne on the deck near the sea. Everything with smile and no extra cost.
The hotel is not luxury (30 rooms), but family and great staff, well placed and very nice arranged.

The owner Sele makes you well at home with his stories and cooking. The views are amazing and secluded. Not much to do in the area so perfect to just chill and unwind. Bedrooms are nice with four poster beds and balconies - what more do you need?

Arrived in Zanzibar from Dar es Salem and was greeted by Sele at reception who was polite and made us feel most welcome. We had a bungalow with a magnificent view of the crystal clear sea. Room was clean and modern. Langi Langi has a wonderful kitchen whether you having breakfast, lunch or dinner. The highlight of our trip was the night Sele cooked for us and another group. Seafood followed by a magnificent chocolate mouse whipped up by Sele himself. Nungwi is the best area of Zanzibar with the best beaches. It is surrounded by other resorts but I would say the Langi Langi is the best. Sele I would like to say thank you for your generous hospitality and making our stay a great one.

I was very disappointed by Langi Langi, the reviews on trip adviser clasify this hotel high up. what I didn't know is that there are very few hotels in Nungwi beach that's why rating is so up.
I have spend 2 nights in Langi Langi and moved to hotel close by as the service and room was awfull, it doesn't justify the price as for 50% more you can be in total luxuary where in Langi Langi you are in Bungalows which smell of damp, with very little service ie there is no spa, no treatments, restaurant is very poor and internet cafe is literally one old pc with keyboard so dirtry that its just unbelievable.
The price of the basic room is just unjustifible. If you really can't pay any extra then you need to forget about any expectation of nice relaxing holiday.

Thank you for your review, review gives us way to improve our service and much more but i dont agree with you that our rooms smell damp our rooms are cleaned everyday and from time to time we also service them like painting, changing the design etc regarding the service our service is one of the best and we try to do best to make sure our guests are happy. Yes its true we dont have spa its also not mentioned on our site or on our hotel description. Our restaurant is known to be one of the best in Nungwi. Regarding the price they are one of the best.

I have to say that after staying here twice, I feel like one of the 'special' guests. Sele treated us like queens our last night there and treated us to an incredible seafood feast. The food is YUMMY, the service tends to be good - could improve with more attention to the guests while they are lounging around the veranda and pool areas; the setting is just out of a picture book and its location is spectacular and very convenient. The price for residents is very reasonable for the quality of the experience. This is a pearl in an oyster for a romantic, or luxurious stay without the ridiculous price.

My sister and I stayed at Langi Langi for 7 nights and we had the best week ever!! On arrival we had a cool tropical punch welcome drink and were welcomed with smiles and genuine hosipitality. Our reservation was for Garden view rooms, which were basic but clean and comfortable.

On our 1st night the owner and our new found Tropical friend Sele, gave us a complimentary upgrade to a Sea View room as the guests who were meant to check-in that night cancelled. We had 3 fantastic nights in that room. If your budget allows, book the sea views rooms!! The views are stunning, they will take your breath away. The room was beautiful. Big, cosy, well furnished and just superb!

Sele, I think was the highlight of our stay, he took such good care of us, we kinda forgot that it wasn't actually home. He made sure we were ok all the time and went out of his way to help us plan our excursions and when we stayed at the hotel he was always there and ready to help.

Leaving Langi Langi was very difficult, other than the great staff, who are sincere and happy to be there. The hotel itself is situated in what i think was the best part of the island. Langi Langi is in Nungwi Village and has a few other hotels near it. One very expensive, further up, wont mention names...but we found that most of their guests came to Langi Langi repeatedly for dinner. The food was great and every night was a treat!

We will definitely be going back to Langi Langi and taking the whole family with us and will make sure to book Sea View rooms.
