For anyone looking for a wonderfully intimate and personalized stay in Zanzibar, with barefoot luxury and understated elegance, Matemwe Beach Village is the ideal destination. Located close to the Mnemba Atoll on the northeastern coast of Zanzibar, Matemwe Village enjoys endless pristine, palm-fringed beaches and glistening aquamarine seas. Guests can enjoy total seclusion and relax among true East African hospitality in an informal yet luxurious setting. The resort’s owners strive to offer their guests an authentic and comfortable stay, serviced by a local friendly and efficient team. Matemwe Beach Village truly understands what is required of an island holiday.
Guests are treated to small touches that make all the difference, sun hats, sarongs, beach baskets and ice-cold bottled water – the perfect accompaniment to a day at the beach. The accommodation is simple, yet perfect. The Kajii rooms are furnished in a beach style, some boast a sea view, all have en suite bathrooms. The Shamba suites are more spacious, and perhaps more suited to those looking for a little more luxury, or that need more space, these are a popular option among small families and Honeymooners. For the ultimate romance, the Asali suite is entirely self-contained and comes with its own plunge pool, indoor and al fresco shower, and private strip of beach – there is even your own chef on hand to prepare delicious meals enjoyed in the privacy of your own space.
The resort offers daily menus, thoughtfully designed to ensure guests a flavor of all the local delights. Specializing in seafood, although not exclusively, guests can be assured of delicious, freshly prepared local produce served in an informal ambience, sometimes under the thatched roof of the main lodge, sometimes around the pool, and other times around the boma! Honeymooners and romantics can organize to dine alone under the stars.
For those really looking to unwind, a visit to the resort’s spa is an absolute must. Or simply lounge in one of the many cool, intimate spots around the resort. More active guests will be spoilt for choice with a number of beach activities.
