Having just returned from a 5 night stay at Mvuvi Resort, I would like to share my experience. After 3 weeks on Safari, and as a single Senior traveler I was ready for a peaceful, quiet, safe and laid back atmosphere to end my stay in Tanzania and Mvuvi Resort was all that and much more! Alessandro (a handsome Italian)... More

It is a small peaceful and friendly resort with only 6 rooms for couples and families, but not with small kids! The beach is white sandy; the view from the restaurant to the ocean is marvelous. The hotel provides you with water shoes against the sea shells and sea urchins. Basically there is no jellyfish in this part of the... More

We spent a wonderful eleven nights at this delightful resort. Had a very memorable Christmas Eve dinner on the beach which was organised by Alessandro, the hotel manager - a truly delicious banquet never to be forgotten. Tours were arranged with great precision and the 4 course meals were delicious; many options including fish fresh from the ocean and fresh... More

If you are in for some 'smooth & chill-out moods', this is most definitely the place to stay in Zanzibar; with only 6 rooms, an (almost) private restaurant (with a wide variety of choices and wonderfully tasty food!) and a vast white sandy beach - inviting you for pleasant early morning or late afternoon relaxing walks - our experience was...

Walking along the beach at Kiwengwa, I decided to go in and take a look at the Mvuvi Resort. It is perfectly located with a lovely oceanfront overlooking the turquoise blue water of the Indian Ocean. Nice architecture and a thick stretch of white beach is at the front of the resort. From all indications it looks quite lovely and... More

After spending 5 wonderful days at Mvuvi, all I want for Christmas is to be back there! We were so pleased with the individual attention, the delicious meals, the courteous staff and the care we received while we stayed there.The owner, Miss Milly was delightful, directing us to outstanding excursions, arranging drivers, and sharing her love of Zanzibar with us....

Our stay at Mvuvi was absolutely incredible! I live and work in Uganda, and came to Zanzibar with my parents, who were here to visit for Thanksgiving and some vacation. My mom and I did a lot of research on where to stay in Zanzibar, and Mvuvi was a clear favorite for many. Now we know why! I am so... More

Mvuvi is the best resort in Kiwengwa beach without no doubt. The owner is very friendly, trying to comfort you all the time and the meals are very good;especially if you are keen on Italian food. Meals are not in hotel standards; you feel like you are eating at a high class restaurant. One day due to bad wheather conditions... More

Words cannot describe how much we loved our stay at Mvuvi resort last week. My husband and I came here to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary after climbing Kilimanjaro and our 5 days were perfect. The resort is small - however that means that all the service is personal and it is very quiet. Alessandro - the manager - is... More

I'm hesitant to say anything about this place because it's so great I'd just like it to stay a secret. But the owner and staff deserve all the guests they can handle. This is just such a lovely little hotel in a perfect setting with the friendliest, most helpful people. The food is just out of this world. You will... More
