Very nice staff. From arrival to checkout. Nothing was impossible, You just had to ask. Quiet surroundings located right at the beach but still near the action. Close to the village Kiwengwa. 5 minutes walk to activities like diving(two PADI sites), snorkeling and kitesurfing. Small restaurants and bars in the area. Good food(mainly seafood but other choices available upon request)....

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...

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
