Wake Up In Paradise

Tucked away from the island’s bustling large beaches, lies the breathtaking, picture-perfect, white and turquoise Chwaka Bay on the south-east side of Zanzibar. Here nestles a little gem of the warm Indian Ocean, an intimate, owner-managed resort. Due to the intimate size of only 20 luxurious rooms, Michamvi Sunset Bay Resort has a relaxed atmosphere. Unwind on the powder-white sands in the bay and enjoy a cocktail, while watching the magnificent sunset. There is no task too great for the staff, ensuring you always receive personal service. Discover the tropical paradise resort, designed for those who appreciate careful attention to detail. Relax and let Michamvi Sunset Bay take care of you.



Michamvi Sunset Bay has created a space for guests to chill out – reading a favourite book or enjoying a cocktail. When you’ve had enough of the sun, this is the ideal spot to put your feet up. The hotel has 10 first floor and 10 ground floor rooms. Downstairs rooms have their own little garden and upstairs rooms have a private balcony. Rooms are laid out with total relaxation in mind. The king size beds are huge and dressed with breathable cotton sheets and blankets to give you the ultimate night’s sleep and mosquito netting, that is set away from the bed.



For many of our guests, lounging about, lazily sipping cocktails from the bar, a mere 10 metres from the sea, is their idea of the perfect holiday. However, a selection of organised tours, free and paid-for options is also available for the more adventurous. Michamvi Sunset Bay has two restaurants. The Sea Breeze restaurant, where breakfast and lunch are served, is located directly on the beach overlooking Chwaka Bay and the Garden restaurant, where dinner is sometimes served. There is evening entertainment occasionally and the tables are set up around the pool or on the beach or in one of the restaurants.
