Hideaway of Nungwi coming to Zanzibar’s North West coast


A new luxurious 5 star resort and Spa complex is nearing completion at the far North West side of the main Zanzibari island of Unguja, set in nearly 25 acres of prime land with over 300 metres of direct beach access from within the resort. Located about an hour’s drive from the international airport, the added transfer time is reportedly worth it as the splendid isolation of the resort ensures privacy for guests and full enjoyment of the glittery white beach without the menace of any vendors intruding. Due to open by the end of April, give or take a little, the Hideaway of Nungwi will offer 100 villas, suites and junior suites for guests seeking the added comfort of larger rooms or extravagance of private villas and a range of facilities including what is supposed to become a top of the range Spa. A full range of treatment options will be on offer for guests seeking not just a dream holiday but also aim at wellness through tailor made programmes covering an entire stay, if so wished.

Built in a style combining local Arabic Swahili features with Moorish architectural designs the new resorts rooms measure from 45 over 54 to 90 square meters, depending on the type of suite preferred while the villas offer between 90 to 320 square metres of space, private infiniti pools of course part of the added facilities.

This latest addition to upmarket accommodation on Zanzibar is in line with the destination seeking to set itself apart from the rest of East Africa’s coastal resorts, aiming to claim the top end of the market and making it move into the direction of Mauritius or the Seychelles vis a vis client expectations and destination reputation.

The new resort will on opening be a member of Leading Hotels of the World, a further notice of intent by the owners and managers where they want to see the Hideaway of Nungwi Resort and Spa positioned in the highly competitive market for Zanzibar beach resort vacations.
