Matemwe Lodge


Matemwe Lodge remains one of the most secluded resorts on Zanzibar and is perfect for a relaxing and exclusive beach holiday. Matemwe Lodge consists of twelve beautiful bungalows, built from local materials and surrounded by tropical gardens. Each suite has a private veranda with a hammock and sofas overlooking the Indian Ocean. The bathroom is large, spacious and has both a deep bathtub and walk-in shower. When Swedish sisters Helen and Katharina set foot in Zanzibar in 1989 to set up a small lodge, they had the wholeeisland to choose from. They chose Matemwe, perfectly situated opposite the spectacular diving and snorkelling reefs of the Mnemba Atoll and surrounded by some of the best beaches on the island.Perched on coral rock explaining why it is famed for the local snorkelling and diving. With lush tropical gardens, friendly staff and private swimming pools it is little wonder this destination is often referred to as paradise.
