Mnarani is based on the northern tip of Zanzibar Island right in the heart of the village of Nungwi. “Mnarani” means lighthouse in Swahili and here on the eastern ridge of the village you will find the oldest lighthouse in Zanzibar, built in 1886 and still in operation today.
Mnarani Beach Cottages offer a coral lagoon changing with the tides as well as the seasons; Mnarani has one of the finest beaches in the Indian Ocean. When the tide is out, take a long walk on the golden sands and see what Nungwi really has to offer. At Mnarani Beach we offer excellent, mid-priced accommodation suitable for families and couples looking for a wonderfully relaxing spot. Mnarani has been recommended by The Lonely Planet Guide, The Bradt Guide to Zanzibar and many other East African travel guidebooks. The lodge is owner-managed. The owner strongly believes in providing employment for local people, and about 60% of the staff comes from Nungwi village itself, with others from different parts of the island or from the mainland of Tanzania.
All employees are given full training and are encouraged to take part in management decision making on a variety of levels.

All rooms have mosquito nets and fans. Eight are located along the sea front with views to the ocean, and four are within the lush calm of the tropical garden.
