We stayed at Mvuvi for our honeymoon. It's the perfect place to relax after a week-long safari.
Very small (6 rooms) but oh so great. Everything is set up with such care and it's individually and lovingly furnished to the last corner (in- and outside). Food is a composition of african and italian cuisine - yum! We didn't have lunch but we really enjoyed tea-time with freshly baked goods and cookies.
We stayed during off-season and almost all of the hotels on Kiwengwa beach were still closed, so it was very quiet and we had the beach to ourselves.
One small dissapointment was the laundry service. We simply expected a faster service. We only got our clothes back, the day we left (which was also the last day of our trip before flying home). If we had known that beforehand we wouldn't have bothered about letting them be cleaned. We could have washed them at home...
- 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
