Mwezi means "moon" in the Swahili language.
A symbol of all that is rhythmic and cyclic, is the moon through its phases, to mark the biological rhythms of the living creatures and the all of nature.
Its influence is even more visible in a delicate ecosystem, complex, but fortunately still unspoiled as the one in Zanzibar: the daily, even hourly, spectacular change of color of its sea is just one of the effects of the moon, and follows the movement of the tides.
We named the resort after this, in order to celebrate this symbol of transformation and life, without which nothing would be the same.
“Green-compatibility, use and recycling of recovered materials, interior design, modern African art and hospitality”: the project Designed and built by SANDRO GURIOLI, an Italian designer , together with his wife ELGA GIANNINI that led to Mwezi Boutique Resort is based on.
Currently, travelers are looking for something different, new and unique.
Mwezi Boutique Resort is the right place to meet this expectation.
Its strength is in the beauty of the pristine place, combined with a new idea for a resort in Zanzibar: merging the ancient building technique using clay and wood and the characteristic makuti roofs, with a modern and exclusive taste , in order to give the resort a unique charm and imprint.
Mwezi Boutique Resort is a resort that embodies the essence of the purest and most authentic Africa, with its rhythms, its perfumes, its colors, but where you'll find a simple and familiar hospitality, that will make you feel at home.
At Mwezi you will feel at home because as our slogan says, it’s “your home on the beach “
