After an extremely hectic 6 months the one thought that got me through my work program was the thought of a holiday. After checking out many places we picked Tambua Sands Resort because it was small, had wonderful looking bures, a glorious beach, opportunity to snorkel and most importantly a space to chill out. Tambua Sands delivered on all our...

Low key is what we like and we weren't disappointed with individual attention for both children and adults alike that you are unlikely to receive in larger resorts. We had a family group of four children under 12 yo with four parents and two grandparents. What a marvellously relaxed week we had with the caring and entertaining staff we were...

This is a great place to relax.Great friendly staff, great food at a reasonable price. The cabins are clean and comfortable. Security was really good. If you want a place to relax with great pool and snorkeling in the lagoon this is a great place. Cabins close to the beach are worth the extra as you may get some road...

Stayed in Tambua Sands two times: in 2012 and 2016. Great small resort with cozy bungalows on the beach. It is not crowded resorts with hundreds people walking around. Here you feel like you came to visit friends. The people working there making this feeling very real. Enough activities, great snorkeling, good food. Exceptionally friendly service.

On arrival, we were received with a welcome drink, of orange juice, which really did come at the right time as it was so hot then. Soon after, we were escorted right to our room, which was simply beautiful, spacious, airy & most of all right in front of the beach. The sound of wave crashing & the wind whirling,...
