10/10 Exceptional

Amazing small hotel with crazily good service.
This was a perfect boutique hotel - exceptionally pretty and with everything we were looking for. The rooms are just metres from the beach, the food is extremely good, and the team can't be beaten. Getting up at 3.50am to gift us fresh fruit for a trip was absolutely exceptional but in keeping with the service we received throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble, and they also went out of their way to make sure that they accommodated our (vegan) dietary requirements. Cannot recommend too highly.

Amazing stay at Mvuvi. Very secluded (1h from Stonetown), intimate and private. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperative but we had a chance to enjoy the great food, the private beach and walk around the shore. I would probably chose to explore another area next time with more things to do around (not as secluded).

Mvuvi Resort provides the perfect idyllic beach respite - it is quiet and relaxing. The staff were amazing - helpful and kind (and very accommodating when my outgoing flight got cancelled and I was rebooked on one leaving 5 hours later). I would love to come back!
