Thank you very much Michamvi Team! You have a wonderful spot, you keep it up with a lot of care and with the same care you treat your guests. I have had one of my best relaxing holidays. You offer a nice mixture of comfort and nature. I enjoyed the open space directly at the sea. Having a swim before... More

After a month of arduous activity in a neighboring country, Michamvi Sunset Bay was the perfect spot. There were NO surprises, no shortcuts taken by staff, courteousness and friendliness abound. Not to mention...that sunset night after night!

Our stay at Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort was excellent. This place is perfect for anyone, including those with small kids. We traveled with our toddler daughter, who loved the pool, the grounds, the beach, and the staff. They had a cot for us in the room and sand toys at the beach, which meant that we could travel relatively light.... More

I'm not one for writing reviews, but on this occasion we feel rather compelled to do so. We stayed for our honeymoon at Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort, in the month of April 2016 … and we were certainly not disappointed. It was our first time in Zanzibar, and the team at Michamvi made sure it was truly an unforgettable experience.... More

We visited Michamvi Sunset Bay 4 years ago and loved it then. This time we took our 2 children 14 and 18 years old. We had the time of our lives. The food was excellent, the staff went above and beyond the call of duty and everything we wanted to do was arranged promptly and efficiently. The atmosphere is fantastic... More

Just returned back from this place and I can not put in words how heavenly our experience was. The staff was friendly and the chef catered for our needs as requested. Treated with a big smile every time all the time. There is miles of soft white sandy beach almost empty as it was start of the low season. Ideal... More

Brilliant location and one of the only places along the beach with shade! If you're staying nearby and want a place to sunbath in the shade here is the perfect place to do it! For $10 a day per person you can use all of their facilities and the $10 paid is taken off your final bill! We ate here... More

A cute smallish resort on the east coast of Zanzibar. It has a great atmosphere, very friendly management and staff, a gorgeous sundowner bar. The rooms are large, very well furnished and equipped, with the best mosquito net I have ever experienced. The rooms have large balconies with seaview. Dinner is in different locations within the resort, at the swimming... More
