We enjoyed such a special honeymoon at Michamvi. After a wonderful holiday there a few years ago, it was top of our list of places to go for our honeymoon. It was low season and a bit rainy so there weren't many other guests and most of the time it felt like we had the resort to ourselves. The weather... More

A wonderful little hotel set in Chwaka bay away from the really 'touristy' and 'commercial' parts of Zanzibar. Absolute peace and tranquility, beautiful sunsets, excellent beach front, lovely rooms, brilliant service. The management of the hotel are able to suggest a number of unforgettable excursions (don't leave the island until you have swum with the dolphins in Kizimkazi). Food is... More

A real pearl on the seaside on the East coast of Zanzibar. You seldomly find a hotel where the whole staff is so eager to provide you the most enjoyable stay. We spent five nights to relax after a one week wonderful but tiring safari in the north. The hotel has a reasonable size (about 20 rooms), and the whole... More

This is a great small boutique hotel with a great location and a terrific staff. This was our second time here for a 3 night stay, after being on safari and just needing some chill out time. Rooms are great, as is the food. Being on the Indian Ocean it is a great place to relax. But what really has... More

We stayed at Michamvi as a big group of friends with two young kids and had one of the best holidays ever. The kids still talk about how they were in the pool all day, the amazing fresh juices and delicious food. The suites were so comfy with a turn down service. And best of all was being right on...

My husband and i chose to get married in Zanzibar and on checking out Trip Advisor, Michamvi Sunset Bay stood out for me due to the outstanding reviews and more importantly, the fact that most referred to the personal touch of owner Brad and Simone. Just myself, my partner and our two young children were going to be present at... More

Michamvi Sunset bay was Gods gift and blessing to us for our wedding.. It was everything and more that we wished for our wedding. It is the most beautiful untouched, natural paradise that we have ever seen. When I was there I had to pinch myself that this was real! They have the most indescribable beautiful beach wedding venue as... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights in mid December 2013. The first two nights, we were privileged to be the only guests at the resort and had the magical experience of exclusivity, exceptional service and great food. The fish curry at the bar's lunch menu is to die for, literally.. The resort is right on the beach.... More

My family (two kids -- 3 and 1.5 years) and my parents stayed here for two nights, including Christmas day. Rooms: Spacious rooms that are meticulously clean. The bathroom looked so new that I felt like I was the first one ever inside of it. The room opened right onto the pool and steps from the beach. Grounds: It's on... More

The hotel is amazingly clean, the facilities are top-class and all the staff are friendly. We visited a few other hotels on the island and this one was the best. The food, snacks and refreshments were very good and always well presented. Probably the most stunning feature is the west-facing beach facade that gives the perfect view of the famous... More
