Matemwe Retreat: picture gallery


Matemwe Retreat offers exclusive accommodation on the east coast of Zanzibar.
There are 4 separated two-storey villas and each of them …
…has a personal butler to ensure you don’t miss anything during your stay.
The villas are incredibly spacious, with a king-sized bed...
... and several snug sitting areas where even…
… old traditional boats and Zanzibari artifacts are integrated into the fittings.
The private veranda has a Zanzibari style daybed ...
... and a comfortable hammock where you can relax with a good book
The roof is the ideal place to enjoy a refreshing drink…
… whilst admiring the view over the ocean…
...or enjoying a dip in the plunge pool.
The stone-walled bathroom is another highlight and a wonderful addition to the overall tone.
Wallow in a luxurious bath with a view…
… or cool off in the shower.
The deco is very interesting but…
… not the only reason to stay at Matemwe Retreat, which include...
...absolute privacy...
…and the picture-postcard location.
This lodge is ideal for enjoying private time in style.
