"Hotel closed so offered Mizingani Seafront"
I received an email within a day of bookjng that the hotel was closed for renovation and offered a room at the Mizingani Seafront. After confirming via prompt email responses that the Mizingani was easy walking distance to everything in Stone Town I agreed to the switch. Staff were excellent. Super friendly, welcoming and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfy with a good mosquito net. Breakfast was just ok, bordering on disappointing. The hotel restaraunt was convenient but average. The seafront view was nice at night. I still would have prefered the Dhow for location, with much better proximity to restaraunts and shops.

"Incredible lodge in an idyllic setting!"
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights after a long safari in mainland Tanzania and 7 nights in the quiet, restful Michamvi. We wanted to stay close to Stone Town, but not in the center as we wanted to relax before the long flight home. Hakuna Matata did not disappoint - it was a beautifully kept lodge, respectful to the natural environment and showcasing the ancient ruins. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the bungalow we stayed in was stunning with a view over the private cove. One of our best nights in Tanzania was having a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea, watching thousands of bats fly overhead from Prison Island to Stone Town - a real spectacle! Can't recommend highly enough for a peaceful, luxury break just outside Stone Town.

The Z Hotel

Nungwi Beach, Nungwi - Map
 
 
"Excellent location on the beach!"
The Z hotel is just the right mix of relaxation and adventure! The rooms are clean and well done. The hotel staff is attentive and warm. The infinity pool that over looks the pristine blue Nungwi beach is rejuvenating. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the pool chairs or the rooftop - a beautiful sight. The proximity of the beach is just right - we enjoyed alternating between swimming in the sea and the pool. Even the interiors of the premises are tastefully done - be it the cube table on the rooftop, the reception, the pool chairs or the room decor! Every room almost has a sea facing view. The only negative are the rates quoted by the diving center and tour operators - 130$ for a single dive whereas the diving centers in the vicinity offer 2 dives for 135$ and 95$ for a single dive. We dived with the Divine diving and yoga center located in the adjacent property - also found them much more professional. Mrembo tours, the travel agency located within the hotel premises offer some interesting tours (a little on the expensive side though as compared to other tour operators). However, this is no way deterred the wonderful experience that we had at the Z hotel. We opted for other diving schools instead. The hotel is worth every bit! Another aspect worth mentioning is the easy access into other properties. The hotels on this stretch do not restrict their guests to their property. The gates between hotels are open and one can easily walk into another property for lunch/dinner.
