Privacy and exclusivity are the order of the day at this traditional three-roomed villa, making it the perfect tropical escape for families or groups looking for a secluded slice of Zanzibar’s beautiful coastline.
Blissful Matemwe Beach, with its shallow, coral-fringed lagoon, is ideal for a tropical beach holiday – exactly what you need after a busy game-viewing safari. Just off the coast is the world-famous Mnemba Atoll, said to provide some of the best diving and snorkelling on the continent. The warm turquoise waters off these coral reefs provide mesmerising sightings of bright reef fish, turtles and dolphin, while the deeper Indian Ocean gives you the chance to see humpback whales on their annual migration route between July and November. With the Indian Ocean on your doorstep, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, boat trips and diving excursions are easy to arrange – although you may find lazy days relaxing at your private plunge pool and soaking up the tranquil surroundings equally appealing.
Matemwe Beach House features traditional Zanzibari materials, handcrafted furniture and locally woven fabrics. The villa sleeps six people in two double bedrooms on the ground floor and a mezzanine bedroom with two single beds, all with mosquito nets and air conditioning. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower, while the second bathroom contains a bath and shower. WiFi connects you to the outside world.
The outdoor space is thoughtfully designed to maximise shady spots with glorious sea views: a hammock and large sofa take prime position on the wooden deck, while the glittering swimming pool shares the same impressive Indian Ocean views.
Matemwe Beach House’s staff includes a private chef and butler to look after your every need, so can relax completely. Your chef will cook up your choice of the local fishermen’s daily catch and treat you to a fusion of traditional Zanzibari and international flavours. A personal butler is on hand throughout the day and will assist with activity bookings and spa treatments. A short walk across the beach provides access to neighbouring Matemwe Lodge and all its facilities, including the spa and open-air restaurant.
Don’t miss the chance to explore historic Stone Town – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is just an hour’s drive from Matemwe, so day trips into the winding streets of the historic town are easy, as are excursions to all corners of this fascinating island. Whether you want to relax in a hammock below the shady palms that fringe the tropical beach or explore the fascinating history and rich culture of Zanzibar, there is plenty to do at Matemwe.
