Matemwe Retreat

Matemwe Retreat is located on an remarkable stretch of private land, just north of Matemwe’s main lodge opposite the Mnemba Atoll.

This new “retreat” is constructed by local craftsmen, and where possible from local materials. Walls are of local stone and roofs are made of makuti (woven palm leaves). Most of the furniture is made from locally produced coconut wood. Soft furnishings are produced by Zanzibari women and the matting by the Blind Association in Stone Town.

Matemwe Retreat is the ultimate in sheer indulgence. There are three separate villas, full of atmosphere, inspiration and personal touches. Each villa has a floor area of 150 m2 including verandahs. Features include a private cocktail bar, an air conditioned bedroom, a bathroom with double basins, shower, and large romantic bathtub overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Each villa has its own plunge pool on the private roof terrace complete with sun and shade decks. To complete the luxury is a private beach area outside each villa.

Matemwe Retreat prides itself on its service. Each day the manager or chef will stop by to discuss lunch and dinner preferences: the catch of the day can be served in the privacy of your garden, on the roof terrace or enjoyed at Matemwe’s main lodge, where you can enjoy the company of other guests.

Drinks are served in your room or on the beach and you can have massages and beauty treatments in the comfort of your roof terrace, overlooking the Indian Ocean.
