Location: Matemwe Retreat is located on the north east coast of Zanzibar about an hour by car from Zanzibar airport or the Stone Town, right opposite the Mnemba Attol, an excellent site for diving and snorkeling. Wooden walkways allow guests of the Retreat to access the main Matemwe Lodge should they wish to use the pool or dine in the restaurant.

Accommodation: Matemwe Retreat consists of three separate villas, each with uninterrupted views of the turquoise Indian Ocean, designed to cater for those looking for privacy, as they feature in-house dining and private butler service. The ground floor of each villa features a private bar area, an air conditioned bedroom and a bathroom with double basins, shower and a large oversized bathtub looking out towards the ocean. A spacious veranda equipped with a comfortable couch and large hammock provides the perfect spot to unwind and watch the fishing dhows returning from sea. The private roof terrace hosts a plunge pool complete with both sun and shade decks. In front of the villa is a small private beach.

Facilities & Services: Matemwe is a perfect place for relaxation as well as water activities. Select your menu with the chef each morning, sip a fresh cocktail in your plunge pool and enjoy a relaxing massage in the privacy of your villa, or leave your sanctuary to dive and snorkel at the nearby reef. Visits to the neighboring village can be arranged.
