Setting the scene
Matemwe Retreat is located on an incredible stretch of private island, just north of Matemwe's main lodge and right opposite the Mnemba Atoll which is famous for diving and snorkelling. Matemwe Retreat offers four exclusive villas set just metres back from the Indian Ocean. Staying at the retreat in its secluded location and dedicated private butler, the Retreat is considered one of the most exclusive choices of accommodation on Zanzibar Island.
Reflecting the white sand beaches and the tropical waters, the spectacular villas echos the tranquil island surroundings. Each villa is fully air-conditioned, with all villas featuring a private bar area, spacious double bedroom with king-sized beds and en-suite bathrooms. A veranda equipped with a comfortable couch and large hammock provides the perfect place to relax. The private roof terrace has a plunge pool with areas to cool down in the shade and lie in the sun.
Local snorkelling and diving sites are available for all levels of experience. Guests can also snorkel straight from the beach or during reef walks. Kayaks are also available to explore the sea even further. Day trips can also be arranged to the historic centre of Stone Town, Jozani Forest or Prison Island, or a Spice Tour to learn about the amazing variety of spices that the island is famous for.
