“Wonderfull vacation - very recommended hotel”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

The hotel is quiet and very good for families. The beach is beautiful. Food is excellent and served every day in another location. Peaceful place and very helpful team. It is the perfect hotel for resting after long Safari or after Kilimanjaro trip. In case you want site tours in Zanzibar, the team will arrange any tour for your request (Additional price). Rooms are clean, big and beautiful. Nice pool for the kids, very nice bar and nice atmosphere. We enjoyed staying at the hotel and we recommend it. Special vacation in one of the most special and beautiful location in Zanzibar

We enjoyed such a special honeymoon at Michamvi. After a wonderful holiday there a few years ago, it was top of our list of places to go for our honeymoon.
It was low season and a bit rainy so there weren't many other guests and most of the time it felt like we had the resort to ourselves. The weather that time of year (April) is cooler and a bit wet but we were very happy to relax in the bar while it was raining and it was still lovely and warm.
The staff went all out to ensure we had a fabulous stay, from decorating our room with flowers to organising snorkelling trips and a romantic sunset dhow cruise and picnic, and not forgetting the fantastic seafood platter for two on the beach.
We can't thank Brad and the Michamvi team enough for filling our honeymoon so many happy memories.

A wonderful little hotel set in Chwaka bay away from the really 'touristy' and 'commercial' parts of Zanzibar. Absolute peace and tranquility, beautiful sunsets, excellent beach front, lovely rooms, brilliant service. The management of the hotel are able to suggest a number of unforgettable excursions (don't leave the island until you have swum with the dolphins in Kizimkazi). Food is excellent and watching the sunset each afternoon at the bar is a prefect way to end each day. My children (aged 6 and 8) had a wonderful time and pretty much spent all of their time in the sea or in the pool. They thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling excursions and the dolphin experience. This was truly the best holiday i have ever been on.

A real pearl on the seaside on the East coast of Zanzibar. You seldomly find a hotel where the whole staff is so eager to provide you the most enjoyable stay. We spent five nights to relax after a one week wonderful but tiring safari in the north. The hotel has a reasonable size (about 20 rooms), and the whole staff quickly knows you to provide personalized and friendly service. Rooms are large, quiet, nicely furnished and very confortable with a deck facing the sea and the wonderful sunsets. Very nice private beach and pool in a beautiful garden. The bar and the restaurant facing the beach are gorgeous. Every day menu setting is different (buffet, table service, barbecue on the beach, music... ) always with refined local dishes and good wines. The lunch menu is various and excellent. The hotel will arrange personalized excursions like the spice tour combined with a nice local lunch on the beach. Thank you again to Dave and his whole staff for our fabulous experience ! A perfect relaxing stay to recover from a stressful safari !

This is a great small boutique hotel with a great location and a terrific staff. This was our second time here for a 3 night stay, after being on safari and just needing some chill out time. Rooms are great, as is the food. Being on the Indian Ocean it is a great place to relax. But what really has impressed us is the staff and manager Brad, who twice has really gone out of his way to help or assist us. Both time we stayed here we were part of a larger group and both times everyone was very happy with everything. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Zanzibar.

We stayed at Michamvi as a big group of friends with two young kids and had one of the best holidays ever. The kids still talk about how they were in the pool all day, the amazing fresh juices and delicious food. The suites were so comfy with a turn down service. And best of all was being right on the beach with all our friends. A holiday to remember. Brad the owner was the epitome of a good host and gave us a great deal. Two of our group even decided to get married on the beach and Brad made it beautiful on very short notice. We all dream of going back.
