ocean front cottages

our garden view rooms occupy the ground floor and offer easy access to the tropical gardens, pool and beach – the perfect spot to catch the wonderful aromas from the equatorial plants and flowers.
the sea view rooms are on the 1st and 2nd floors and offer panoramic views from the northern tip of nungwi out across to the distant tanga mountains and continuing down the west coast of the island. natural light floods the rooms until the evening when the blood-red sun finally drops off the far edge of the earth.
