With a stunning position on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Indian Ocean and one of the best beaches on the island of Zanzibar, Matemwe Lodge provides exceptionally stylish accommodation and a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.
Each of the twelve large, detached bungalows is exquisitely furnished with local fabrics, wooden floors, king-size beds and handmade furniture. Each has private facilities and a large balcony overlooking the sea with hammocks and wooden chairs. Other room facilities include free Wi-Fi, ceiling fans, tea and coffee facilities, and room and laundry service.
Service is relaxed but efficient and the restaurant serves excellent fresh seafood dishes. There are two swimming pools, a small bar built around an old dhow and well maintained gardens which attract bush babies and many birds. There is also a full service spa on site as well as an array of optional activities. Swimming is good off the lodge’s beach at high tide.

Wonderful setting in beautiful gardens with top quality staff and amazing food, nothing could be faulted. Would highly recommend to anyone who wanted a ‘safari chill down’ or a lovely beach holiday on Zanzibar.
