Gaze out upon the mesmerizing Indian Ocean as you relax in our infinity pool, or stretch out on our poolside furniture . Complete your experience by quenching your thirst with poolside cocktails or feed your exercise-fuelled hunger with tasty bar snacks

Our chef’s goal is to delight you with their culinary art, offering a variety of an A La Carte style menu to choose from that contains specialty Zanzibari dishes as well as a breadth of rotating international dishes using flavors and spices from the island

We may be biased, but we believe we have one of the best beaches in all of Zanzibar. Enjoy these pristine waters in different ways all day long, as the tides completely transforms the coast. During high-tide enjoy a dip in the beautiful shades of turquoise and blue as the waves stretch up the beach. During low-tide, you'll see calm crystal clear water as far as the eye can see, and have the opportunity to explore sandbanks and coral life far from the beach

Overlooking the ocean, our gym is equipped with cardio machines and free weights. It's unique architectural design allows the cool ocean breeze to flow directly through the gym. It is accessible 24hrs a day

Activities and Tours

Both on and off the coast of the island you'll find many exciting activities, tours, and experiences. Imagine taking in the scent of fresh herbs and spices as you tour the local spice markets, the feeling of pristine turquoise waters lapping up over your feet as you wade into the sea, or the enchanting sounds of the Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey as you explore the Jozani forest.

Below we've made a short list of some of the many things to do on the island, all of which we can organize on your behalf through our concierge service.

Sea Turtle Conservation Pond
One of our most highly recommended experiences. Just a short walk from the hotel you'll find an NGO community based conservation project preserving the green turtle population of Zanzibar. You'll have the opportunity to feed these gentle creatures as well as swim in their natural salt water lagoon with them.

Zanzibar is home to some of the best beaches in the world. Often the subject of travel magazines and fashion shoots. You'll find fine white sand, and crystal clear turquoise waters no further than your room walkout terrace at Nungwi Dreams, but you'll also be able to explore the many other gorgeous beaches across the island each with it's own unique character.

Kite Surfing
For our more adventurous spirited guests you'll have the opportunity to experience the rush of kite surfing, as you glide across the Indian Ocean.

Snorkeling in Zanzibar is regarded among the best in the world. Our sites will thrill you and give you an unforgettable experience. More than 350 different fish species are recorded here alone.

Nungwi Dreams is located perfectly in a Divers paradise. Almost all of Zanzibar's best dive sites lie in the north end of the island and at Mnemba Island. The deep water around Nungwi attracts some of the real giants of the Indian Ocean such as the beautiful Humpback, which you may encounter during it's migration.

Mnemba Island
The marine reserve comprises four distinct habitats which are home to a diverse array of Indian Ocean wildlife:

  • Green turtles
  • Humpback whales (July to September)
  • Three species of dolphin
  • Whale Sharks (the world's largest fish)
  • Migratory and resident shore birds feed and roost on the Island
  • Approximately 600 species of coral reef fish

Jozani Forest
The only National Park in Zanzibar and a thriving rainforest, come see the famous Red Colobus monkey and the Legendary Zanzibar Leopard, as well as 50 species of butterfly and 40 species of birds.

Kizimkazi Dolphins
Embark on an experience of a lifetime by swimming with the Dolphins in their natural habitat. The seashore of the fishing village Kizimkazi is the home of several pods of humpback and bottlenose dolphins.

Prison Island
What was once used as a prison for rebellious slaves, now is famous for Giant Tortoises and some spectacular snorkeling. This is a must-do combined with a Stone Town tour.

Deep Sea Fishing
Enjoy some of Africa’s best deep sea fishing grounds. The channel between Zanzibar and Pemba in particular, is an internationally renowned site consistently providing first-rate big game fishing opportunities. With large schools of Barracuda, Wahoo, Kingfish and Giant Travelli in the area all year round, and seasonal visits from many other species such as Marlin.

Spice Tours
The Spice Tour is one of the most popular excursions on the infamous Spice Island. It received this nickname as a result of being one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon in the 19th century. Engage in a walking tour of a spice farm, and smell and taste different spices, finishing off with an authentic lunch.

Stone Town
Visit the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, and wander through the maze of narrow alleys lined by houses, shops, bazaars and mosques. Stone Town's architecture has a number of distinctive features, as a result of the multitude of cultures that had controlled it and have mixed together in an interesting manner.
