Travelers' Choice
Mvuvi Resort is an elite boutique hotel on the east coast of Zanzibar. It is located on the white beach of Kiwengwa, overlooking the Indian Ocean; from there you can admire the crystal and clear waters of the reef. It can be defined as an intimate location, genuine and elegant at the same time, in a state of perfect harmony with the Swahili culture and traditions. A place where you can sunbathing on a peaceful private beach enjoying the real beauty of the nature or doing sports. There is something to suit all tastes, such as kite surfing, diving, and many others. It is also the ideal starting point for different kinds of excursions to Zanzibar or exciting safari in Tanzania. The building consists of six large rooms with all amenities and comfort, it is specializes in a highlevel hospitality. It represents the ideal destination for young couples (for instance, on their honeymoon), but for families with children and groups of friends also. Mvuvi Resort is not the typical mass tourist resort, it is something more: it’s a quiet and exclusive place, which has a saltwater pool and a private spa in its green garden. In the end, you can even admire and enjoy a lovely meal in the restaurant with a nice terrace that overlooks the Ocean; it seems a perfect spot for romantic dinners and hearty breakfasts. A fusion cuisine, in which Mediterranean flavours are mixed with the colours and aromas of local products and goods, starting from fish to tropical fruits. An unspoiled place to spend carefree days of vacation in Zanzibar in a real African atmosphere. Free Wi-Fi access in all the Resort

Amazing place right on the beach. Fantastic restaurant with great food, but the view from it while drinking cappuccino in the morning watching the sun rise... simply amazing. Lovely little, charming pool to cool off.

My wife and I had our 1 year anniversary dinner at Mvuvi boutique resort restaurant last night. We were recommended it by a friend. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed by incredibly friendly and well trained staff. the restaurant is beautiful with a ocean beach side feel but with elegant clean finishes. The food, WOW!!! absolutely blown away. We opted to go for the tapas style menu (there are main course dishes as well) style as there were just so many amazing options that deciding was just to much to deal with. Seared tuna, red snapper ceviche, baked brie every single dish (just to name a few) was so well presented and flavour well, Out of this world. I honestly cannot say enough to that the team and chef at Mvuvi for the amazing evening. Again thank you for making our special night even better than we could have hoped for. No doubt you will be seeing us again very very soon. Best of luck for the future..
