We have spent 11 days in Mvuvi Resort, which was the best choice we could make on Zansibar. September is great time to go there (about 33 degree celtigrade, not 40 like in December). Cordial thanks to Alessandro and Grace again for just giving us the feeling to be the royal family in this little castle. For 7 days we...

Alessandro, the manager at Mvuvi, ensures that each customer is treated as royalty. Simply ask anything to Alessandro and he will make it happen. The menu/food can be customized at will, the personnel is attentive and professional and the rooms well appointed. The pool is small in size and the orientation is not great, but who cares when you have...

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)....

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
