Very small boutique resort in Kiwengwa which has direct access to the beach. The staff and service is exceptional and the dining and food was very delicious. The room is very rustic yet comfortable however it comes with minimal and basic amenities. My wife had two massages in the spa which were very relaxing. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a hotel in North East Zanzibar. The only minor hiccup was that I had purchased Half Board however, there was a miscommunication between Expedia and the Hotel and this issue was promptly resolved.

We had an amazing stay at Mvuvi and Zanzibar. Carolina arranged everything so easily and made our stay a relaxing one. All staff at Mvuvi make you feel at home. Views from the property are incredible. We will certainly come back for a longer stay next time.

We couldn’t speak more highly of this wonderful hotel. The staff were so attentive and made us feel like we were the only guests staying there. The hotel itself was beautiful, quiet and with so many lovely attentions to detail. The moment we arrived we felt instantly relaxed and welcome. No task was too big or small for the team there, from helping us get our lost bag at the airport, to organising incredible days out and surprising us with a beautifully romantic dinner on the beach for our final evening; everything was so thoughtful and we really didn’t want to leave. I have been back one day and already told everyone that they must stay here! Thank you so much for having us.

Absolutely marvellous and memorable stay. Grace was top quality from start to finish. Staff were always on hand, helpful and very polite. A very small intimate environment with limited guests, yet space enough to do your own thing. We were blessed to have stayed and can’t recommend the place strongly enough to others.
