Fire at Ras Nungwi

Filed under: Tanzania Odyssey News — Tags: — Tanzania Odyssey @ 11:26 am

It is with great sadness that we announce that Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel has been destroyed by a fire. The fire started at a neighbouring property on the morning of 4 February 2017, and stoked by strong winds, engulfed our hotel causing catastrophic damage. Mercifully, everyone was evacuated without injury, thanks in large part to the dedicated efforts of the hotel’s management and staff.

Ras Nungwi was a much-loved, award-winning hotel established some 20 years ago and we are devastated by this great loss. It is going to take some time to assess the options and plan for the future but we hope that Ras Nungwi will re-open in due course. Thank you for the kind messages of sympathy and support. It means a lot to us.
