We have just returned from a week at Michamvi Sunset Bay and cannot recommend the place highly enough. It was heaven on a beach! From the moment we arrived and were welcomed with cool pineapple cocktails after our long journey from Central Africa, we knew we'd made the right choice. The situation of the hotel, which is set right on... More

In nine years of living in East Africa, I think this is the best beach and location I have stayed at. White sand scattered with beautiful shells, crystal clear waters, herons, egrets and crab plovers walking along the waters edge. You can walk for miles along the empty beach - no touts and barely any development, or walk in the... More

After a spectacular safari and 2 days in Stonetown we spent 5 nights at this very nice place. We enjoyed the beach and the relaxing atmosphere in this small and beautiful hotel (20 rooms). The staff was very friendly and helpful (the management as well). Our kids (twins 12 years) felt very comfortable (the kitchen staff suggested them other meals... More

As many others mentioned before: the rooms are big, tidy, super clean with awesome views and lovely outdoor spaces like a well sized balkony or terrace to enjoy a glass of wine and (sigh...) a cigarette without annoying your neighbors too much. The food is very good though not up to for example South Africa standard. But for Tanzania well... More

During our current holiday in Zanzibar, we spent 2 nights in this gorgeous hotel. The setting is beautiful on the shore of the bay with white sand beach and the most stunning sunsets both nights. The dinners were served outside near the beach and the food was delicious. Breakfast was equally special. The rooms were clean, well equipped and very... More

Everything went according to plan - no hassles at all. Staff met us at the airport promptly as per arranged. The drive to the hotel was interesting and our driver was knowledgeable about the area we were travelling through. The rooms were amazing - all overlooking the beach and pool. Spacious, Clean and comfortable - with mosquito nets and air... More

We passed through this hotel to have dinner at the restaurant. We liked and enjoyed what we saw and the service was good, although we were not staying at this hotel. We had some time to explore the hotel and it's good value for your money. Food prices at their restaurant are quite reasonable. The beach is awesome. We are... More

Michamvi Sunset is a lovely place on Zanzibar. It's very quiet and save and relaxing as the place is situatied on a very quiet spot of Zanzibar. Beautiful beach view, nice bar, delicious food and very friendly and helpful managers. If you like the personalized service, this is the place to stay! With only 20 rooms this place will never...
