About us

Under the moon..

Aluna comes from the greek Helena meaning “shining light” and the latin Luna, “the moon”. Once you have experienced the beautiful moonlight in Nungwi you will understand why Aluna is the perfect name!

Aluna has been described as an oasis, a 15 minute walk away from the tourist places and crowded beaches. During high tide (twice a day) our sea is amazing to swim in! And of course our swimming pools are always there for a lovely refreshment.

A lot has happened since the start of Aluna in summer 2017. Rooms have been renovated, the garden has been landscaped with a lot of new flowerbeds, plants and trees. The makuti-roofed roof terrace and the smoothie bar and 3 rooms have been newly build.

In May 2018 the first swimming pool was created, well integrated in the centre of the garden and with its turquoise water, shallow jacuzzi part, and night-lightening a real eye-catcher and joyful pleasure! Our 10 new rooms (some with private jacuzzi and outside tropical showers) and extra swimming pool, finished beginning of 2019, are the cherry on top.

Weekly we offer the opportunity to get to know the other guests. Bonfire dinners and shared grilled fish buffets are no exception.
Our priority is that our guests feel like coming home and be part of the ever growing Aluna family.

Aluna Beach Lodge keeps on improving, to ensure your comfort and homefeeling during your holiday.

Hope to meet you soon… “under the moon” at Aluna!
