We spend 10 days and nights in this wonderful resort and it was never boring for a second. All days began with sunshine above the lovely unspoiled beach with coming and going warm Indian Ocean. Ever a gentle warm wind and beautiful blue sky. Let's say .... that`s how paradise must be ;-) Every morning began with a warm and... More

After a safari and visit to the Masai in Tanzania, this hotel was a welcome rest and relaxation to introduce us to Zanzibar. We felt like we arrived in paradise. We were fortunate to have beach facing cottages which were clean, well appointed with hot showers and lovely decor. Charles the manager was very hands on, addressing our every need... More

I stayed at Ras Michamvi with 6 other guests while traveling through Tanzania shooting a documentary, 2 nights here in total. The location is very private; on the small peninsula on the East side of Unguja. We did not see masses of tourists but instead had the feeling that the entire island was ours. Waking up with the sun rising... More

Spent our honeymoon at Ras. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff are very friendly, though we had the advantage of speaking Swahili. The meals are our memory. We really enjoyed the meals. So I would not advice one to overstay if you are keen on your weight. The restaurant is also nicely set overlooking the ocean. The rooms are... More

Not so good points - Only possible to swim in... More

We had a 4 night stay at the Ras Michamvi and although there are things that could be improved, we had a wonderful stay and found all the staff to be extremely helpful. We went with our 2 year old and the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and accommodate us. The position of the... More

I am slightly hesitant to write this review because the Ras Michamvi has been under new management for only 8 days and therefore has the potential to improve. However, the manager has his work cut out for him. If all you need is a bed and a good pool, Ras Michamvi is the right place. However, if you are going... More

The sea breeze drifting in and around cabana was astounding and restful. The beach extended out to 1/3 mile as the tide went out allowing walks into the sea. Full board meals were extravagant with fresh eggs, meats, fruits and brewed coffee. Special dinner items posted each night on chalk board enticed us to try local grilled seafood, meats (beef)...
