The Hideaway of Nungwi - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our team below:


The location is perfect, benefitting from a beach with calm waters, low tidal range and great sunsets. This is a quality 5* resort suited to both families and couples. There is lots to do for the active and plenty of areas to relax in for those who want to relax. You really cant go wrong with the Hideaway, it has quality rooms, facilities and location all with an unpretentious air, we are sending lots of guests.

The Hideaway has everything you need for a fantastic holiday, be you a family or couple. The standard of accommodation is very high and the location is perfect. You do lose some of the Zanzibari charm of some of the smaller resorts, but if you like larger All Inclusive resorts with lots of facilities, you cant go far wrong with the Hideaway.
