It is set around a small tropical garden that is home to a number of exotic trees and local wildlife.

The swimming in the sea is excellent here, being much less affected by the large tidal movement which affects the beaches found all the way down the East Coast. The helpful on site management couple and owners will be more than happy to arrange any number of trips and tours for you, and this is a great location for relaxing, as the busier area of the beach is a good 15 minutes walk away.

With our recommendation, Flame Tree Cottages now have a pool for guest's refreshment and relaxation.

We are also pleased announce that Flame Tree Cottages now hosts "Yoga Zanzibar", with regular morning and evening classes and retreats run by Marisa van Vuuren. You can also book in for a week or 10 day intensive yoga retreat holiday, staying at Flame Tree and practising Yoga twice a day, coupled with other exercises and learning. We have to say, this is a perfect spot to promote harmony of body and mind, to de-stress, and to totally unwind.

Other activities

Flame Tree Cottages is just a short boat trip away from the Mnemba Atoll making it a good spot for those wishing to snorkel or dive along the reef.

Snorkelling trips are one of many trips organised by the resort. Others include sailing on the hotel's own traditional dhow, fishing and dolphin spotting. Trips can also be arranged to visit the local school in Nungwi.

Breakfast is personally served each morning to guests on their own private verandas.

Our opinion

The rooms are spacious and air conditioned but don't really have a view to speak of. Terraces are shared so you don't have much privacy either. Customer feedback regarding the food and service is a bit hit and miss but you do get a lot of space and peace in what is quite a busy area for a good price.
