What does "Mvuvi" mean? In Swahili, the local language, this word means "Fisherman". We chose this name as a tribute to the beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean, fishy waters that are crossed every day by fishermen with their traditional sailing boats: the Dhows. To observe them sailing will be a way to immerse yourself into the local reality, that actually is Sea, Sun, endless Beaches, Coconut Palms, lush Vegetation, and joyful people. If you are just looking for relax, that’s what you will find... whereas, if you are interested in excursions, water sports, and activities you will have the chance to choose between a wide range of them. That makes Mvuvi a “tailored-made Paradise” suitable for people of any age, couples looking for a romantic atmosphere, families, solo travellers or groups of friends. Each to their own ideal Holiday ... To everyone "Welcome to Mvuvi!"
Bunaglow KiwayuKiwayu was built in December 2015 at the first floor of Lamu bungalow. It is the smallest of our rooms, but it fully meets the needs of those travelling alone or in couples. Its 30 square meters are divided into two main rooms in Swahili style: a bedroom with a king size bed and a private bathroom with hot shower. Large windows, equipped with mosquito netting, make Kiwayu a fresh and bright room and from the top of the stairs you can enjoy a nice view over the garden.Details
Bungalow Manda“Manda” is the first bungalow built in Mvuvi, thus for us it represents the beginning of our dream and of this beautiful adventure. Despite being the smallest of the three bungalows, Manda can comfortably accommodate 3 guests, given its 45 square meters size. It is built in masonry and it has the typical makuti roof. The floor is made of local stone (Galana), and the ceiling is in wood. Both windows and beds are equipped with mosquito netting. You will be able to relax in the shade of the porch, enjoying the garden’s spectacular view.Details
Bungalow PembaMvuvi is growing, so next to Manda, we built “Pemba”. Just as the Indian Ocean is sprinkled with islands, so our garden is enriched by the presence of a new bungalow. Pemba, as well as Manda, is made of stone and natural materials. The makuti roof, the wooden furniture and the local stone, make it similar to its predecessor (Manda). Although it is the ‘younger brother’, it actually is bigger with its 60 square meters. Therefore, it is suitable to accommodate up to four people. Both windows and beds are equipped with mosquito netting. Pemba is also embellished by a cosy sitting room and a spacious porch where you can relax on comfortable sofas.Details
