Situated slightly north of Matemwe in an elevated position, Matemwe Retreat enjoys unspoilt views through palm trees of the Indian Ocean and Mnemba Island. The stretch of beach alongside the main lodge is shared only with the local fishing village, which is situated on the far side of the sand.
Matemwe Retreat consists of four self-contained, private villas, each with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean. The villas have been designed to cater for those looking for pure escapism, as they feature in-house dining and private butler service. The ground floor of each villa features a private bar area, an air-conditioned bedroom and a bathroom with double basins, shower and a large bath looking out towards the ocean. A spacious veranda equipped with a couch and hammock provides the perfect spot to unwind and watch the fishing dhows returning from sea. The private roof terrace hosts a plunge pool complete with both sun and shade decks. The villa is situated above a small beach which is shared by all 4 villas.
Guests can experience superb diving and snorkelling, partake in Spice Tours and Stone Town visits, or even venture out on deep sea fishing trips. Alternatively, the private plunge pools, lounge beds and in-room massage treatments will give many guests the perfect excuse to stay put in the comfort and privacy of their rooms.
