I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are clean and they manage to keep it somewhat cool in the hot hot weather. Kombo is a really great person and will help you with everything you need from organizing day trips to laundry services. The house is 100m from the beach and a short walk from every major high quality tourist company (you will find on tripadvisor) like Divine Diving, Zanzibar Parasailing, etc. Restaurants are plenty and there is an Internet cafe and many small curio stands nearby.

Merci à Kombo pour son accueil chaleureux et pour tous ses bons conseils!
Les chambres sont propores, spacieuses et bien équipées. La maison est superbement décorée et l'on s'y sent presque comme chez soi tout en étant vraiment dépaysés. Un véritable hâvre de paix à 2 pas des magnifiques plages de Nungwi. A 2 pas également du meilleur centre de plongée de l'île, le East African Padi. A découvrir.
Owner's Response: GOOGLE TRANSLATE Thank you to Kombo for the warm welcome and for all his good advice! Propores rooms are spacious and well equipped. The house is beautifully decorated and it feels almost like home while being really disoriented. A true haven of peace in two steps from the beautiful beaches of Nungwi. Discover.

Perfect African getaway

Zanzibar is just amazingly beautiful everywhere and the people are so friendly. I stayed with two girlfriends at Nungwi Retreat and we had a fabulous time. This was our first trip to Africa didn’t know what to expect and we were a bit nervous but Kombo was so lovely and looked after us so well. The rooms were simple but clean and comfortable set in a lovely sandy private garden. We ate delicious fresh fish every day in various Zanzibarian spices! We had the most amazing time (even though we were there in rainy season) and can’t wait to go back to stay there again but for a longer time to see more of this lovely island. Spice Tour, snorkeling, turtles and Prison Island absolutely fabulous as was everything else - also the most gorgeous shells! Super fun playing drums with new friends around the beach fire!

Relaxing on Zanzibar

After the most fabulous safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater, we went over to Zanzibar for a week of pure relaxation. Having been shown a few places to stay we chose to stay at Kombo’s, as we loved the local feel of the cute little house rather than a hotel full of people. We had the most amazing time and Kombo help us make the most of our time on the island, we also discovered he is an amazing cook! It was the perfect ending to a wonderful holiday. The locals were so friendly and we made some great new friends. Early morning walks along the stunning beaches were so relaxing and drinking cocktails whilst watching the sunset was a great end to the day. I will definitely go back to Zanzi and Kombo’s, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

Our perfect holiday destination

My wife and I stayed at Nungwi Retreat for a couple of weeks early March 2010 and can honestly claim that it was one of our very best holidays ever. Our room was furnished simply but authentically and the bed was an impressive, comfortable and huge four-poster. We alternated between chilling out in the private garden and exploring the coastline or visiting one of the attractions. The beach is paradise and we were spoilt for choice with the bars and restaurants. Actually, the best was the Union Bar, about half a minute away! The locals were a delight - helpful, polite and interesting. Nothing ws too much trouble for Kombo who, as well as being an accomplished chef, was always ready to suggest trips and arrange excursions. We intend to return in the Spring of 2012 and we can thoroughly recommend a stay at Nungwi Retreat to anybody else.
