Matemwe Retreat consists of four fantastic villas on a stretch of palm-fringed land with a secluded beach. It is just north of Matemwe's main lodge and opposite Mnemba Island.
Each of the rooms has a ground level with a 150 square-meter space, including the verandas. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and lead into the bathrooms with showers and baths overlooking the Indian Ocean. The large verandas offer cocktail bars and plenty of space for private dining. They are furnished with comfortable sofas, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the stunning views; watch the local fishermen drift slowly past on a traditional dhow boat.
The top floors each feature a private sun and shade terrace and a plunge pool. Although guests will find all they need in their villa and on the secluded beach, the facilities of Matemwe's main lodge are accessible for Retreat guests including the two swimming pools.
Seafood, fresh from the ocean, refreshing cocktails, massages and enjoying renowned diving and snorkelling sites like Mnemba Atoll, are just some elements of guests daily routines. Massages and beauty treatments can be enjoyed in Matemwe's main lodge.
Dining can be enjoyed in the privacy of your villa or at Matemwe's main lodge. The chef stops by each day to introduce the special Retreat menu suggestions and the fresh catches of the day, the specialty of Matemwe's acclaimed cuisine.
Matemwe is about an hour's drive away from Stone Town and Zanzibar International Airport. Transfers to and from Stone Town and Zanzibar Airport can be arranged at US $60 each way; subject to change.
