We stayed five nights in October 2016 with our 7 year old daughter. The staff as well as the manager were super helpful with arranging dive trips and tours. Highly recommended for anyone looking for tranquil place to stay in Zanzibar.

Everything about Mvuvi was great: the hotel, room, staff, service, location, food and overall experience. The hotel is small and you always feel that your privacy is respected. Definitely worth a visit!

Had a wonderful time at Mvuvi. It's a very small resort with only 7 rooms. This made for a quiet and peaceful stay. The staff was very attentive and helpful in arranging excursions, transportation, etc. They were accommodating with allowing us to come back from an excursion to shower and check out late before catching the ferry back to Dar...

Alessandro, the manager at Mvuvi, ensures that each customer is treated as royalty. Simply ask anything to Alessandro and he will make it happen.

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
