Matemwe Lodge

First Class A very comfortable hotel, with air-conditioning, at least one restaurant and bar, and most with a swimming pool.

Matemwe Lodge is a resort perched on the cliffs overlooking the northeast coast of Zanzibar. The lodge consists of 12 bungalows built from local materials and surrounded by lush vegetation.  Each suite is decorated with dark woods, bright silks and comfortable furniture.  The en suite bathrooms are quite large and hot water both powered by the sun.   All rooms have private verandas where you can laze in your own hammocks. Although mosquitoes are rare in Matemwe, all rooms are equipped with a large mosquito net.

Enjoy the contrasting colors of the Indian Ocean, the fine powder sand of the beach, the extreme beauty of the coral reef and the wild bush vegetation. Meet the friendly villagers, visit the local fish market and explore the ocean reefs on your doorstep. Matemwe arranges water safaris with full high range equipment which enables you to enjoy the local reef and discover Mnemba Atoll in a relaxed and informative manner. A highlight of your stay will be a trip on their traditional wooden sailing dhow! The Sea and Space Spa overlooks the Indian Ocean and offers an extensive array of treatments.
