Came as a guest, left as a friend.
Came as a guest, left as a friend. I can’t think of a better way to describe my stay at the Mvuvi resort in Zanzibar. I had originally booked for 4 nights but ended up staying 8 nights. The location is perfect, the beach has pristine clear water, the rooms are clean, the stuff is friendly and helpful, the hotel is very well maintained, the menu is accommodating for all tastes, and so on…. I would like to personally thank the manager C for making my experience in Zanzibar unforgettable. Height recommend this beautiful boutique resort. Ciao.
