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!

Great Hospitality!
This place is amazing ! Relaxing. Perfect for couples or family that seek peace and quite!!! Where shall I begin...? From the rose water they provide to wash your hands and the delicious juice they offer at arrival or the amazing hospitality ? Grace, has been an amazing host. Has arranged my excursions based on my schedule and needs. I was in need of bandaids and she went above and beyond on getting some from the pharmacy and bringing them directly to me!!! Clean place and great food! I highly recommend it !

Paradise and a trained chef to prepare the meals!
Everything about Mvuvi resort was EXCELLENT. the hotel is on a white sand beach with its own private area. There is a reef just off the beach with many fish and some healthy coral-reached by a dhow(small boat that you stand up in) A "captain" sails the boat. Our room was a good size with fan and aircon and was spotless. Always had HOT showers., The hotel staff (organised by Grace)were so obliging-- anything we asked about or wanted they sorted. This included a car and driver for a half day-cost 35$ We had half board and the food was really good. Choices for breakfast and a four course meal for dinner which you chose after breakfast.The food was cooked to perfection and served quietly and professionally .We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a truely relaxed time in a paradise location.

We will come more
It was the best decision to stay in the small and cozy resort. If you want to calm down quietly, enjoy tasty food, good massages and be surrounded by very professional staff, this is the place to go. There is no internet in the room, but in the dinning area, library and the courtyard.

Personal retreate
This is a friendly, small hotel, that gives a personal service to guest who I found to be very accommodating. My rooms was a nice size, simple and very clean, and has working fans and air-condition. Please note the Wi-Fi connection was not great and is not available in your rooms which may be a good or bad thing? There was no fridge in the room so you can not keep drinks/water cold in your room. The food is all freshly made on site and there is a good selection for breakfast including really nice doughnuts, dinner is quite late in from around 7.30pm (this is not a buffet), you are served a four course meal, again freshly made, good quality and tasty with at lot Italian inspired dishes, personally I would have like to have some more options of traditional dishes from Zanzibar, but the pasta is very good here. I did need to have lunch as the portions are generally conservative so dinner and breakfast was not enough for me. The grounds are very attractive and well kept the best looking along this beach. This hotel also clean the beach every morning outside the hotel removing rubbish and seaweed, most other hotels do not clean the beach which means that other parts of the beach can have rubbish, plastic and seaweed which is very sad as its a beautiful place. Overall I would recommend this hotel if someone wanting to stay in this area. The staff take pride in their hotel, beach, service and guests and make you feel very welcomed like I was in a personal retreat.
