Riu Palace Zanzibar
, previously known as Hideaway of Nungwi, is located in the Kendwa area on the northern tip of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

It is a good quality large beach resort set to the southwest of the village of Nungwi. It lies on a very large plot above the ocean and is of a modern international design, with a choice of restaurants, a very large swimming pool, bars, an extensive spa and wellness centre, plus a total of 78 guest rooms in a range of different categories. There is a wide range of marine and other activities. Unusually for Zanzibar, there is also the possibility of heading out in the evening to sample the night-life down on the main beach in Kendwa.

The main potential downsides at Riu Palace Zanzibar are that the resort is quite highly priced, it is in a very busy area and is not of an particularly authentic local design. The beach disappears during high tide and the lodge is too remote for some excursions around the island.
