Your Destination

Located on the southeast coast of Zanzibar. The 10km long and 2km broad headline stretches out with Chwaka Bay in the east and the Indian Ocean in the west. As there are only a handful of hotels in this pristine area, you can enjoy absolute tranquility. The only sounds you are likely to hear are the gentle waves of the Indian Ocean and nature itself.

Chwaka Bay is part of the Jozani Forest-Chwaka Bay Conservation Area. The coral rag zone is home to wildlife species of international significance including the endemic and near extinct Zanzibar leopard (P.pardus adersii), the red colobus monkey (Procolubus badius Kirkii) and the Ader duiker (Cephalophus adersii). The conservation area harbours five important vegetation zones: ground water forest, coral rag forest, salt marsh, mangrove forest, and sea grass beds. Trips exploring the nature with a local guide can be organised by the hotel.

On the peninsula's ocean side, there is a long barrier reef approximately 1km offshore. Diving and snorkelling trips at the reef can be arranged with the hotel. Swim between the large coral formations and schools of tropical fish and witness life under the sea! You may also rent snorkelling equipment from the hotel and explore the lagoon yourself at your own leisure. Mnemba Island is a popular coral reef diving spot of international importance. The hotel can also arrange trips to Mnemba which is just off the northeast coast of Zanzibar.

The capital of Zanzibar is Stone Town which can be reached in approximately 80 minutes. On the way you will pass Jozani Forest, famous for its red colobus monkeys. If you are seeking nightlife, the village of Paje is only 20 minutes away.

Your Hotel

Ras Michamvi Beach Resort is a remote and idyllic resort on the beach, hidden on Zanzibar's eastern coast. The resort is a little Eden harmoniously set in a large natural area with access to 2 powder-white beaches, a garden, a forest and a stunning oceanfront swimming pool. Cooled by the gentle ocean breeze, it makes the perfect getaway to an exotic African paradise!

The hotel offers 15 spacious Sea View rooms and Garden View rooms surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Expect comfort and attention to detail, with all the amenities you could need for a comfortable stay.

The open restaurant of the hotel overlooks the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean and the coral reef. The cuisine reflects diverse culinary and cultural influences, combining international touches with local flavours and ingredients. Tropical fruits and various desserts are enjoyed by the guests in this intimate atmosphere. A typical Zanzibar Swahili tasty dinner with traditional food, local dancers and drumming is held once a week on BaoBeach.

Additional facilities include 2 private beaches and free wi-fi in lounge/bar area. You can enjoy a massage whilst listening to the waves gently rolling onto the shore, or have a drink at the pool bar. The Resort is the ideal location for groups, honeymooners and individuals wanting to discover and enjoy everything this enchanting spice island has to offer. Come to Ras Michamvi Beach Resort and experience the magic of Zanzibar!

Your Board Basis

This offer is based on a half board stay (breakfast and evening meal served in the main restaurant - excludes drinks).  Members can upgrade to a full board stay (breakfast, lunch and evening meal served in the main restaurant - excludes drinks) at the next stage of the booking process for an additional fee.

The restaurant is set on a cliff with a magnificent panoramic view of the ocean and the coral reef. Enjoy a birds-eye view of the local ships sailing by as you have a tropical breakfast including fresh fruits and juice, eggs the way you like it and homemade bread. The large open building with its makuti thatched roof is a welcome oasis during the heat of the day.

For lunch and dinner the restaurant offers traditional, continental and vegetarian dishes prepared from local produce. Fresh seafood is also available daily. Sip on cocktails as day eases into balmy night. Feel the true magic of this place during romantic candle-lit dinners and watch the moonlight reflect on the gentle waves of the Indian Ocean.

A typical Zanzibar Swahili tasty dinner with local food, dancers and drumming is held once a week on the private Bao Beach. This is something not to be missed!

Your Time

The hotel property is endowed with beautiful tropical beaches. The main beach can be easily accessed via wooden stairs and features local deckchairs and thatched sunshades. It is best to swim in the ocean at high tide. During low tide you can explore the tidal pools and coral rock while wading to a lagoon where swimming is possible at any time. Right behind the focal beach lays the new striking swimming pool inviting you to splash into the crystal-clear water and refresh from the intense tropical sun.

Bao Beach is a wide, deserted beach with private access for hotel guests through a short 5 minute walk through the forest. It can also be reached from the main beach at low tide. In the morning you can observe local fishermen selling octopus and fresh fish between the two beaches.

There are several wild animals living on the plot that can be spotted such as dik-diks (small species of antelope), hyrax, dykes Sykes and even the endemic red colobus monkeys.

The hotel can arrange scuba diving with the fully equipped PADI 5 Star IDC Centre that regularly dives the unspoiled reefs of the southeast coast of Zanzibar. First-time divers will be able to familiarise themselves with the diving equipment accompanied by an instructor in a swimming pool. It is also good to know that there is a decompression chamber with professional medical staff that opened in Zanzibar in July 2008.

Another exciting activity within easy reach is Kite Surfing. The fully accredited International Kiteboarding Organisation (IKO) centre's amenities include a compressor, pack-down area and rescue boat. Special activities include extreme down-winders, full moon kiting, bonfire BBQ parties and other events.
