Just returned back from this place and I can not put in words how heavenly our experience was. The staff was friendly and the chef catered for our needs as requested. Treated with a big smile every time all the time. There is miles of soft white sandy beach almost empty as it was start of the low season. Ideal...

Brilliant location and one of the only places along the beach with shade! If you're staying nearby and want a place to sunbath in the shade here is the perfect place to do it! For $10 a day per person you can use all of their facilities and the $10 paid is taken off your final bill! We ate here...

A cute smallish resort on the east coast of Zanzibar. It has a great atmosphere, very friendly management and staff, a gorgeous sundowner bar. The rooms are large, very well furnished and equipped, with the best mosquito net I have ever experienced. The rooms have large balconies with seaview. Dinner is in different locations within the resort, at the swimming...

Fantastic place to relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunset in Zanzibar. Very friendly and professional staff, great bar directly on the beach with cold drinks and an awesome view over the Chawka Bay when the sun goes down.

Positioned on the best beach in Zanzibar, Sunset’s layout makes you feel like it’s uniquely, and privately, all yours! Sans the rabble of tourists that frequent the north coast, this beach is every bit as beautiful, and made better because of its seclusion. Swimming in the sun’s shadow as it sets, just a few steps from your sunlounge, makes you...

This is my first review ever on Tripadvisor but after our stay at Michamvi Sunset Bay I felt I just had to let people know about this little gem! From the start when we got picked up from the ferry terminal by the Sunset Bay team I knew this was going to be a special holiday. The welcome at the...

I've visited twice now, the overall vibe is fantastic, food is great and views are hard to beat anywhere in the world. I found the staff to be both professional and attentive, but laid back and fun at the same time.

Thanks to everyone at Michamvi Sunset. Great service from all the staff and the perfect place to watch sunset, perfection. 10 out of 10. Every amenity is so close and the spa is incredible. We really had a great time and was really enjoyed by all.

Me and my boyfriend stayed four nights at the wonderful Michamvi Sunset bay resort in January 2016. It is a great place to just relax and do absolutely nothing apart from just have a great time. The location of the hotel is beautiful and it has a very pleasant laid back atmosphere with plenty of places to relax. The beach...
