Main description of Matemo Island

A magical destination, with pristine beaches enveloped by an azure sea, offset by the distinctive silhouette of palm trees, Matemo Island offers an unhurried and carefree escape.
Each of the thatched chalets is situated within metres of the beach; offering en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, and a verandah complete with hammock for watching the world go by.

Fresh, seafood-oriented meals are served in the dining area, at the poolside or on the sand with the sea lapping gently nearby. Guests will find themselves unwinding at the swimming pool or bar with their sweeping views over the ocean. A range of spa treatments is also on offer for the ultimate in relaxation.

A world of activity is open to those who wish to explore Matemo’s natural treasures with spectacular diving, snorkelling and fishing, as well as a visit to neighbouring Ibo Island, which provides a cultural feast with its rich and, sometimes, dark Portuguese and Arab slave trading history.
