Decided to get married we looked out for the right place on Zanzibar to do so. A tropical place to marry at the beach within a private environment (just the 2 of us). Something small, unique, special and aside of the bit more crowded places on this island.
Based on the excellent recommendations at Tripadvisor Michamvi Sunset Bay became quickly our first choice. And we can confirm all the great feedbacks we read about this resort.
The communication with the English and German speaking hotel managers was from the first day very professional. Any wish we had was realized. Because of the good organization of the managing staff our wedding became an unforgettable afternoon/evening within an awesome sunset. This day will remain forever in our memories. Thanks again guys for all the efforts - especially our witnesses Simone and Brad!!!
The resort is a fantastic place to relax and to enjoy the stunning, never ending and clean beaches as well as the beautiful sunsets. You can also discover easily other parts/attractions of/on the island (tours to Jozani National Park, Stonetown as well as snorkeling tours with dolphins and some more were offered).
Cuisine and breakfast is diversified and delicious. Especially our wedding dinner (seafood platter) was unforgettable. Dinner takes place at different locations within the hotel (e.g.at the beach aside a little romantic bonfire, around the pool with a little jazz band or at the main restaurant).
The local staff of the tiny village Michamvi is very friendly and part of the resorts authentically community involvement which is in our eyes one of many reasons to visit this resort.
There are plenty of possibilities to relax (beach, pool, spacious bar, nice balconies of the rooms...). This little resort is in excellent condition, very clean and well maintained. The pictures on the resorts homepage will give you an imagination how it really looks there.
So if you are looking for a place to discover a relaxing holiday (or even some days after a Safari) and the advantages in terms of an excellent service a small but well managed resort can offer then Michamvi is the place you should go. We enjoyed the private atmosphere at Michamvi Sunset Bay a lot. If you are looking for a great honeymoon or wedding Michamvi is the perfect choice. But if you are looking for animation, clubs, disco´s etc then you should decide for another resort.
We left this lovely place after memorable days very happy and newly-married and would love to come back one day. There is no reason not to give a top rating. Michamvi Sunset Bay is definitely a little pearl on this beautiful island.
