As a solo traveler Michamvi super exceeded my expectations! Large room with a beautiful view from the balcony. Attentive, friendly staff...wonderful management and owner. Food was delicious, drinks were amazing and being able to swim in the Indian Ocean priceless! Definitely will recommend this Resort for anyone traveling to Zanzibar. Thanks for the awesome experience!

After a month of arduous activity in a neighboring country, Michamvi Sunset Bay was the perfect spot. There were NO surprises, no shortcuts taken by staff, courteousness and friendliness abound. Not to mention...that sunset night after night!
