About Us

Why Mvuvi?

Mvuvi means “Fisherman” in Swahili, the local language. 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.

Situated in the pristine beaches of Watamu, along the Kenyan coast, Mvuvi is a small and welcoming Resort, It is 30 minutes drive from the Malindi airport and a 5 minutes walk to the beach,

Characterized by a simple and refined elegance, our bungalows are equipped with every comfort, perfect for short and long stays. They are surrounded by a luxuriant tropical garden, built with natural materials and furnished in Swahili style.

The Restaurant

Our restaurant is reserved exclusively for Mvuvi’s guests. Your five senses awaken early at Mvuvi, from the mornings when the scent of freshly baked bread and cakes spread in the garden. The sight is enchanted by the view of tropic’s dishes fruit and the taste is delighted by the sweetness of homemade jams.

The journey through the flavours continues at lunch and dinner time, when you will be able to choose between several dishes from our delicious “Menu à la Carte”. In addition, Mvuvi offers daily delightful variants to the “Menu à la Carte”, according to the fresh food available in shops and local markets.

The Lounge

Mvuvi wants to guarantee you a pleasant stay, in which you will have the chance to spend time in total relax and privacy, but also moments to share with other guests, if you wish.
