Our family of 4 (two adults, a teen and a tween), spent an idyllic week at the hotel from 19 - 27 December 2016. From the time we arrived until our departure we were treated like royalty. The staff (special mention must be made of Mwana) were exceptional in terms of service, professionalism and friendliness and they went out of...

We spend 4 days after our safari trip at this awesome place. The hotel is nice and cosy and provides you with everything you need for relaxing after a tiring safari. On top the place is directly located at a breathtaking beach with a beautiful sunset . Luckily there aren't to many hotels around. The kitchen provided a great variety...

We stayed for a relaxing week with 2 adults and 3 teenagers. The hotel has a very nice beach, far enough beds for every guest even in top season and a clean salt water pool. One can use stand up paddling and kayaks in the sea. The staff was outstanding! Two in our group have celiac disease but that was...

I came to spend one day in Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort. My friend and I experienced the nice beach. Compared to Paje, the water is very flat, so I think it is the best spot to kayak and stand up paddle. We played Volley Ball, very nice beach volley set up ! Swimming pool big and clean ! Food nice,...

After a month of arduous activity in a neighboring country, Michamvi Sunset Bay was the perfect spot. There were NO surprises, no shortcuts taken by staff, courteousness and friendliness abound. Not to mention...that sunset night after night!

Our stay at Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort was excellent. This place is perfect for anyone, including those with small kids. We traveled with our toddler daughter, who loved the pool, the grounds, the beach, and the staff. They had a cot for us in the room and sand toys at the beach, which meant that we could travel relatively light....

I'm not one for writing reviews, but on this occasion we feel rather compelled to do so. We stayed for our honeymoon at Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort, in the month of April 2016 … and we were certainly not disappointed. It was our first time in Zanzibar, and the team at Michamvi made sure it was truly an unforgettable experience....
