About Mnarani Beach Cottages

Mnarani Beach Cottages is a small, intimate lodge on the quieter flank of the Nungwi Peninsula, on Zanzibar’s North Coast. The Zanzibar Archipelago consists of two main islands, Pemba and Unguja, and about 50 smaller islets. The cottages are set atop a cove on the beautiful beach of Nungwi in the very North of Zanzibar Island.

This lodge offers a range of accommodation for the discerning traveller, from our small, cosy Standard Cottages to well-appointed Deluxe Rooms, romantic honeymoon accommodation and four apartments that are suitable for families and groups.

Its proximity to Mnemba Atoll makes it one of the best spots for snorkelling, game fishing and diving. A one hour’s drive from Zanzibar Town or the airport on a good road will bring you to Mnarani Beach Cottages. We gladly arrange for you to be met on arrival in Zanzibar or picked up at any other hotel.

The swimming pool is an all-time favourite with guests and a free internet service at our library is available in the library. There is a library with over 1000 novels mainly in English, you are welcome to borrow or swap books free of charge.
