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....

The food was excellent, the staff went above and beyond the call of duty and everything we wanted to do was arranged promptly and efficiently. The atmosphere is fantastic...

Just returned back from this place and I can not put in words how heavenly our experience was. The staff was friendly and the chef catered for our needs as requested. Treated with a big smile every time all the time. There is miles of soft white sandy beach almost empty as it was start of the low season. Ideal...

Brilliant location and one of the only places along the beach with shade! If you're staying nearby and want a place to sunbath in the shade here is the perfect place to do it! For $10 a day per person you can use all of their facilities and the $10 paid is taken off your final bill! We ate here...

A cute smallish resort on the east coast of Zanzibar. It has a great atmosphere, very friendly management and staff, a gorgeous sundowner bar. The rooms are large, very well furnished and equipped, with the best mosquito net I have ever experienced. The rooms have large balconies with seaview. Dinner is in different locations within the resort, at the swimming...

Positioned on the best beach in Zanzibar, Sunset’s layout makes you feel like it’s uniquely, and privately, all yours! Sans the rabble of tourists that frequent the north coast, this beach is every bit as beautiful, and made better because of its seclusion. Swimming in the sun’s shadow as it sets, just a few steps from your sunlounge, makes you...
