Good location with nice beach & swimming pool Friendly personal with good cocktails 2 out of our 4 diners where good lunch was good good place to relax and do nothing friendly reception/welcoming/saying goodbye
breakfast should have been better 2 out of 4 diners were just bad everything looks a bit outdated humidity smell in the room; when we told to the management they answered 'it's because we are near the sea' so we had to leave our windows all the time open... We came from another accommodation near the sea and there it didn't smell humid. In my humble opinion the smell came from some leakage somewhere in the bathroom. extreme expensive snorkeling tour $50/pp is just unacceptable anywhere in the world
This is not just an hotel and for who can understands what's really behind it, it's pure PARADISE on earth ... The resort is first at human size, it's a boutique hotel with a few rooms and as much staff members as Guests... offering then an outstanding and clean service. The personnel is very friendly, people smille all the time ... most of the waiters work here for long some 6- 8 or even 10 years long .. The hotel is a kind of social project, each staff member counts, is important, and the direction carres about helping employees to catch up higher standards (trainees, english courses etc .. ). It also sustains the village´s local life by employing staff as much as they can (3 of 10) and giving them enough off days . It creates a network of villagers that build up their own business to supply foods and goods to the kitchen, and finally it supports local artists painters and village school. The direction and management have a vision of what they want to do in Zanzibar it is not disconnected from Africa and everything makes sense. It's a family hotel with human size where you feel at home, so not poshy and bling bling so people missing tv and minibar in the bedromm better book somewhere else... Finally, the location is just amazing it's the most beautifull beach that you can imagine .. white sand coconut, palmtrees .. it is a private beach where you will feel alone, protected from wind (that we have experienced in other beaches) and where local people come at sunset for football and relaxing. No one comes to try to sell you something and to harass you .. this because the hotel entertain an excellent relation with the village just behind... Every night the staff make huge efforts to install the dining place on a different location, (garden, pool with live quite music, or on the beach with fires and a great Swahili buffet. The bar is located at the beach and you can enjoy there the most amazing sunsets ever ...
Excellent location for those who appreciate white sand, beautiful beach, awasome sunsets... it is a magical location. We stayed for 4 wonderful nights, each night different dinner theme... breakfast literally on the beach, ... the bar is wonderfuly setup to enjoy the Ocean's breeze and to contemplate the mesmirizing sunset while sipping on a magical cocktail or mocktail... Our room was sea facing and it was just great waking up to the amazing view of green ocean quiet wavelets... Very friendly management and staff.. In a nutshell, Michamvi Sunset Bay was an amazing experience!
Being a late riser I would have loved breakfast to be extended till 11:30 AM, but I understand the staff need to prepare the lunch menus etc.
The property is very beautiful The service, staff and management are amazing and very helpful people they’ll do their best to keep you happy!
Water in the washroom wasn’t always available not sure if that’s something with the hotel or the area in general
