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!

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.... More
