Michamvi Sunset Bay
The small intimate hotel with only 20 rooms, guarantees a relaxed atmosphere without outside disturbances. The hotel is dedicated to enhancing Zanzibar’s status as an ideal tropical getaway, as well as uplifting the local community of Michamvi. The hotel takes part in many projects, such as growing vegetables, renovating schools and making use of local guides in the activities offered by the hotel. The low tidal movement is ideal for guests wanting to swim throughout the day and the white beaches and tropical palm trees only enhances the picturesque view of the sun slowly setting over the Indian Ocean.
Situated on the Chwaka Bay on the south-eastern side of Zanzibar, the Michamvi Sunset Bay offers a relaxed and private atmosphere away from the large bustling beaches. The hotel is only an hour’s drive from the capital city, Stone Town, and the airport.
The Swahili influenced cuisine, made from fresh local produce as well as premium imported ingredients, offer meals for meat, seafood-lovers and vegetarians alike. At the Sunset Bar, located on the beach, guests can enjoy a wide variety of cocktails, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, as well as cable TV for the sport fans. An assortment of board games, a small library and a computer also provide around-the-clock entertainment.
The 20 spacious rooms are located on two floors. While the ground floor offers easy access to the beach and swimming pool, the balcony of the top floor offers a stunning view over the ocean. Each room is equipped with air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, mosquito net, wall safe, hairdryer, separate dressing area, tea and coffee facilities, as well as WIFI access and a desk. The bathrooms offer a walk-in double shower and two basins. Four rooms have a bathtub, a single shower and one basin.
Snorkelling, canoeing and kayaking can be enjoyed free of charge at the hotel. Cultural and water activities, such as fishing, sailing, spice and stone town tours can be booked at additional cost, at the hotel reception.
