Me, my better half and our three and half year old son visited Zanzibar in June 2016. We halted at Ras Michamvi for a night. It was a pleasant experience from the start. We booked our stay through an online portal and had a special request for breakfast. I wanted the breakfast to be served at 4 am since I... More

Beautiful peaceful and idyllic setting for hotel. Far out of local amenities but worth it for the beautiful isolation. Friendly and kind staff. Had problems with travel agent with dates for booking but when tried to address it with head office group ' our zanzibar' found them to be dismissive, uncooperative and rather rude. A shame this hotel is part... More

Nice hotel to spend some relaxing days by the sea. Beaches offer great views but you have to consider tides and take some precautions when you want to bath (rocks). Nice bungalows in front of the sea. Food is varied and most of the dishes are really tasty if you choose to eat there. The staff is very friendly and... More

We took a short break on Zanzibar while on a trip to Tanzania for our daughter's wedding. On arrival we were welcomed by the staff and were told we were now part of their family. The garden room we occupied looked towards the sea but was beautifully presented and quiet. Most evenings we could see wild monkeys popping into the... More

Ras Michamvi is perhaps the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. Perched atop a cliff with views of the ocean on all sides, it is the type of hotel one might pay thousands of dollars a night for were it located in St. Lucia or St. Maarten or any of the other Caribbean Islands. Here, I paid a fraction... More

The Room was clean and tidy, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The Air Conditioning was a bit noisy. The bathroom was nice and clean. For a quite relaxing holiday this was perfect, well away from civilisation. Stonetown is over an hour away by car. The staff were kind helpful and always smiling.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Ras Michamvi with his new Austrian Management!!!our beach hotel on Zanzibar's beautiful east coast, is a little paradise harmoniously set in a large natural area with access to powder-white tropical beaches, gardens, forests and a stunning ocean-front swimming pool.We do Quality, instead of Quantity. And you can feel it... Our aim is to cater to the modern traveler, from Kite surfer to food critic to businessman in need of a free broadband connection and everyone else who simply enjoys quality. 8 rooms with sea view and 7 are with Garden view. Relax at this quiet location, feel the tropical sun and the gentle ocean breeze on your skin, look for shooting stars amongst the thousands of sparkling dots in the sky at night, enjoy the freshest fish and seafood served at our open restaurant under a large Makutti roof, explore the stunning natural wonders of the nearby Jozani Forest-Chwaka Bay Conservation Area - in short: come to Ras Michamvi and discover the magic of Zanzibar! All of our 8 rooms have sea view and 7 rooms have garden view. They are located in 4 bungalows on a coral rock elevation overlooking the beach and the ocean. Our new and modern bungalows are built of stone and have wooden terraces, makuti-style thatched roofs, air conditioning, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, mini-fridges, en-suite bathrooms with shower, bathtub, cold and hot water. The rooms are very spacious and tastefully furnished in local style. Three bungalows have 4 rooms and one bungalow has 3 rooms only. Our restaurant is located on top of the same coral rock elevation as the bungalows - hence you can overlook the beach and sea from the round panoramic open building under a big makuti thatched roof. It is the place where you will start the day with a tropical breakfast including fresh fruits and juice, eggs and different kinds of bread. For lunch and dinner our restaurant offers local and continental dishes. There is also a selection of vegetarian dishes. You can have a romantic candle-light dinner at night and feel the true magic of this place when the moonlight reflects on the gentle waves of the Indian Ocean. From time to time we also arrange barbecues on the beach.Service is our succsess,welcome to the most peaseful place on earth. ... more   less
