Matemwe Lodge & Retreat Zanzibar

Matemwe Lodge & Retreat Zanzibar is about an hour’s drive away from Stone Town and Zanzibar International airport. Matemwe Lodge & Retreat Zanzibar is 46 kilometers from the historic Stone Town while Zanzibar Airport is 54 kilometers away.

Matemwe Lodge & Retreat Zanzibar is just 60-minute drive from Stone Town, allowing for easy day trips and excursions to all corners of this fascinating island.

Matemwe Lodge & Retreat Zanzibar is an intimate lodge with 12 luxury suites perched on a coral rock surrounded by some of the best beaches of Zanzibar. Matemwe’s friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, and excellent cuisine (specializing in fresh fish & seafood) are renowned.

Matemwe Lodge Zanzibar has 2 intimate swimming pools, lush tropical gardens, massages, and cocktails making Matemwe the ultimate tropical paradise. Enjoy fantastic diving & snorkeling, sipping a cocktail on the beach or enjoy unforgettable views of the Indian Ocean from the poolside or from the comfortable sofas and hammocks of your private veranda.

Matemwe Lodge Zanzibar is located in the north-east of Zanzibar, surrounded by some of the best beaches of Zanzibar and opposite the well-known Mnemba atoll, a hotspot for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Matemwe’s exclusive location, away from the big hotels, gives the beaches a very private feeling. Beautiful fleets of fishermen in traditional wooden dhow boats sail past on their way to and from their fishing grounds.

Built from local materials and surrounded by beautiful lush gardens, each of the 12 spacious suites has a private veranda with a hammock and sofa and expansive views of the Indian Ocean with its constantly changing hues of blue. Here you can watch the fishermen head out every morning at dawn or listen to the songs of the village women as they harvest seaweed.

Matemwe Lodge Zanzibar has large bathrooms and has both a deep bathtub and walk-in shower and all beds are enclosed by mosquito nets. The open-air restaurant sits just above the sea and has a tranquil lounge area with beautiful views of the palm-fringed beach and gently rocking dhows.

Seafood is the specialty of the house, with all produce bought daily from the local markets. Lunch is a buffet offering a delicious mix of African and European flavors. Dinner offers a choice of main courses with fish, meat, and vegetarian options.

Matemwe Lodge Zanzibar has a multi-level swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs overlooking the ocean. Freshly mixed cocktails are served at the poolside bar.
