“very charming, small, tremendous food, affordable prices”
Reviewed July 27, 2010

I stayed there almost one month and cam suggest it to everyone who looks for a real alternative to the big club hotels in kiwengwa. With only six very charming rooms, you are threated in a very personal way from the staff and hotel manager. the food is delicious (italian and fresh local dishes/seafood) and the terrace restaurant offers nice view over the sea. the hotel is directly at the beach. the rooms offer safe, fan, very spacious bathroom with shower, bed with mosquito net and is furnished with local products. the prices seem to be very affordable.

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
