We stayed at Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort for a week in early January 2015. The service was excellent from the moment I enquired. We actually got our questions answered and confirmed our booking during the weekend... while other resorts only came back to us on Monday. We were welcomed and received the room with the setup as it had been... More

We stayed one night on Feb 7 2014. Around the island, Zanzibar has tides that take the ocean out a km from the beaches, but due to the location of this resort on the bay, you are always able to swim, which is a rare luxury in zanzibar! also great food, nice rooms, nice staff, free kayak use and snorkel...

Wonderful few days at Michamvi. The staff are incredibly friendly, food superb and great rooms. This place has an intimate feel with only 20 rooms. The owner/manager and his team are always around and take the time to have a beer with you. Spent the days watching the ever changing colours of the sea, walking on deserted white sand beaches...

We stayed for 5 days and it was an amazing experience. My husband arranged the honeymoon package and it was truly wonderful. From the welcome bubbles in our lovely room, to the sunset boat rise and dinner on the beach, we were blown away by how much care the management and staff gave to every detail. The hotel is lovely...

We stayed with 2 children at the hotel and had a great time. The hotel offer air-conditioned large rooms, very nice swimming pool. It is on the beach and not very crowded so you feel as if the magnificent turquoise beach is private. The basic sea activities are included. The manager (and staff) is very helpful and took care of... More

It is the perfect hotel for resting after long Safari or after Kilimanjaro trip. In case you want site tours in Zanzibar, the team will arrange any tour for your request... More
