Muvuvi is not far from several of the large resorts, but is just secluded enough to allow you to truly relax and take it down a notch. Allesandro's wonderfully animated Southern Italian accent sets the atmosphere, the staff is warm and professional, and the gentle wind fills the main building and connects you to the beach throughout your time there....

My wife, myself and our friend from the UK stayed at Mvuvi for 10 nights in December 2015. The resort is a nice size. It is only six rooms, but still feels spacious and well-appointed. The rooms are rustic, but other wise perfectly comfortable with air-conditioning, fans and four-poster beds. The beach is beautiful, and they take care to clean... More

My fiance and I were extremely impressed with Mvuvi Resort and all its staff! We stayed there for a week during December 2015 and were validated in our decision to go for a smaller, more intimate resort. Its staff were pleasant and attentive, and its management team (both Alessandro and Millie) were on site and willing to assist with any... More

Allesandro's Muvuvi Resort gets it right--it is intimate, peaceful, scenic, has a warm staff, and all the other ingredients to make a true vacation. Allesandro is careful to ensure everything is taken care of and that you have "no problems". With only six rooms at the resort, it never seemed overcrowded or too busy. The professional staff met any need... More

We stayed 12 nights in November 2015. Mvuvi has six rooms, a small pool, beautiful gardens and a beautiful beach which you step onto straight from the garden. The rooms are spacious with AC and fan and mosquito net, decorated in cool colours and have a nice balcony to sit out on. Everything works. All is calm. Breakfast is buffet... More

Fabulous little hotel situated on the most beautiful stretch of beach. Rooms are spacious and immaculate and with only 6 rooms in total the hotel has a truly intimate feel about it. The food (Italian) was delicious, and the menu variation spot on. They even accepted a few special requests when we really fancied eating something other than what was... More

A small fine and outstanding place with best host Allessandro we ever had! The food was the best italian food we had outside of Italy ever, Service is nice and friendly but not over the edge and you get as much help as you want. (Snorkling, Massage, etc) We highly recommend this place and already done by our friends!

My fiancée and me have seen a number of resorts ranging from 4 to 5 stars in a variety of "dream locations". We have to say this one really stands out! What makes it shy of the full 5 star (international hotel rating) experience is its small size, boutique style, not belonging to a major chain with certain expected standards.... More
