    Beautiful Boutique Hotel directly at the Beach of Zanzibar East Coast. The rooms are spacious with a tasteful arranged Bedroom, attached very functional wardrobe and huge bathroom. The outside terraces is located opposite the small pool. The Main Building with the First Floor Restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and provides a great view to the beach and ocean. The team around Mr. Alessandro was more than lovely, served and helped always with a smile. They arranged also our tours (Scuba Diving with One Ocean, Spice Farm, Stone Town, Sandbank and Prison Island) perfectly. Homemade bisquits, tarts, bread and buns tasted so delicious, hard to stop. The dinner was always a highlight with generally 2 options of 4 courses to choose and the chef put a lot of effort to let us have every day a new and different exprience. Gracie and Asante sana Dear Mvuvi Team. We truly enjoyed a great time in your Hotel. Saula and Jens

    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.

    Great little resort!

    With only six rooms the hotel never feels crowded or too busy. It also means that as a guest you get to know the staff and they get to know and anticipate your preferences. Great for young families or couples on a quiet getaway. Food is excellent and varied. The chief is creative and attentive to fusing local foods with formal European foundations. Her seared fresh tuna and Mango stack was both surprising and inspired.

    Mvuvi is a lovely little resort. It is quiet and relaxed. The manager--Alessandro--works hard to make each and every person feel at home. From the beginning, he addresses each guest by name, making each person feel special. On Easter Sunday, each test was surprised by an Easter basket, and one night, he surprised the youngest guest with a birthday guest. The food is excellent, and each meal gives the small number of guests the opportunity to meet and great each other. After only one day, everyone knew everyone else. It was a lovely way to spend time in a small, exotic corner of the world. I would recommend Mvuvi to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway.

    Lovely hotel on fantastic beach

    We loved this place, food excellent, staff amazing, and a quiet beach with stunning views and powder soft sand. Snorkeling available via 10 minute sail boat ride to the reef/sand bar--snorkeling great and sail so relaxing. Jozani monkeys are a 45 minute drive away, and swim with the turtles at the aquarium 30 minutes away. Visit the caves and bats 10 minutes away. Alessandro was a fantastic host and always checking that everything is to your liking, as well as arranging any tour you wish for. Food is a set dinner every night with 2 choices for every course, although they are happy to substitute for special diets (i am vegetarian and the selections were wonderful). Airport transfer easy and in a nice comfortable air conditioned van. Highly recommend.

  • 6.0.Good

    The employees were wonderful, always with a smile. Disappointing that there was no diet coke nor coke zero and none to be found, or that is what I was told by the management. We bought some on the way to the hotel from a market but the management would not allow us to refrigerate it, not even one a day, and there was minimal ice so we had to drink it room temperature and we were told we could not drink it in the eating area, only in our room. Big turn off from day 1!!!
