Welcome to Mnarani Beach Cottages


Mnarani Beach Cottages is a small, intimate lodge on the quieter flank of the Nungwi Peninsula on Zanzibar’s North Coast. Our rooms, set in a beautiful mature garden by the sea, are all en-suite with a/c, fans, room safes and lovely spacious verandas.

There are plenty of sun beds, swings, sofas and hammocks where you can while away your time, listening to cool music and sipping your choice of drink from our fine selection of wines, cocktails and freshly prepared fruit juices.

We also have various games, a pool table, darts and satellite TV for you to enjoy. Try your hand at Bao, the traditional Zanzibari board game – our team will be happy to show you how it’s done!

We also have free wifi throughout the hotel so you can stay connected.

Come as a guest, leave as a friend.
