Welcome to Zanzibar and Amaan Bungalows Nungwi a picturesque escape for unforgettable Zanzibar vacations .

Stay with us, at Amaan Bungalows Nungwi, to enjoy a memorable holiday on the exotic Zanzibar. Whether you’re here for a romantic getaway, family gathering, or nature exploration, the splendor of the wild surroundings and serene tranquil waters, is at your fingertips.

Tranquil WatersAs we are on the north western point – we are able to view beautiful sunsets. As we are in Nungwi, the northern most part – we have wild tropical surroundings and pristine white beaches, and as we are on Zanzibar, we are surrounding by the unforgettable turquoise water of the Indian Ocean, a postcard picture for sure.

The area we are situated, Nungwi, is and always has been the spot with the most atmosphere and good vibes of the island. Most of the hotels and bungalows are situated in close proximity to each other and all the beaches and restaurants are open for anyone to go to, so the general feel of the locale is friendly and inviting. The local village of Nungwi is in close proximity so tourism and the local cultural heritage mingle on an everyday basis. The fish are still brought on the backs of bicycles, the local fisherman still use their picturesque Dhows to fish on, Zanzibar is still very much Zanzibar in the wild northern region. We at Amaan Bungalows try to use our rich cultural and exotic surrounding to hopefully give our guests a one-of-a-kind holiday so please, karibuni!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It's located on the nicer side of the island and the beaches are very nice. It's walking distance from a few other hotels with restaurants, which makes it nice.
The accomodation itself was good, except for the power and water outages we experienced. Food was good and resort was kept very neat.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed all over Zanzibar, This is the most beautiful piece of beach. We stayed at budget places in the East - South - Stone Town. The difference between 2* & 4* is really not that big. With 4* you pay for the TV- witch we didn't use. Warm water - we didn't use.
If you do not mind 2* I would really recommend it. Amaan is much more expensive and not really that more that you gain.....
However the location is wonderful. The sea do not retreat as much as on other places.
The owners have an agreement to let people pass over their property during high tide. You can walk for long stretches and rest and have something to drink. Many places to eat and relax. We started on the one side with coffee, the next place we had starters, the next supper. Everyone is very friendly, helpful.
This is a super location for families. We found a restaurant where we had supper, coffee and coke for only 14$ for 2.
There is a store or 2 where you can buy almost anything.
We had a good stay at Amaan.
But the best about Amaan was the location!
