We loved the location on the beach and the private area with a guard. The food was lovely and well presented. The room had everything we needed but did smell a bit damp. I think the moisture in the humid air is hard to control. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Grace went out of her way to make our trip relaxing. We loved Samwell a newish trainee who works very hard and has a great sense of humour. My only criticism is that no fresh coffee is offered or available at the hotel. I had to go next door to get my fix. We would definitely visit again and bring the cafetière. Shame with all the lovely African coffee on offer.

Lovely Mvuvi
We had 2 rooms for our family at Mvuvi which is on the lovely Kiwengwa beach with powder white sand and beautiful turquoise water. The resort is small, private and a bit rustic but fit our family perfectly. If you are looking for a big, party place, keep looking. The staff led by Grace was very attentive and always available. Grace helped us with excursions and even gave us a partial refund when we were disappointed in one outing. She also helped us when there was a problem with something we had booked ahead of time and it worked out great. The food at Mvuvi is outstanding! There were good vegetarian options as well. I would have preferred regular coffee rather than instant but that is minor. The dining room is upstairs with a lovely view. WiFi is spotty and only worked for us in the dining room but I think that is quite common in Zanzibar. Thank you Grace and everyone at Mvuvi for making our stay so special!
