Matemwe Lodge

Matemwe, Zanzibar


Stay at 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 whole

island 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.

Mark & Susan

True Travel planned our honeymoon to Uganda, Rwanda and Zanzibar. The insight of the team at TLT helped us choose locations and lodges which otherwise we’d never have known about – they also saved us over £1,000 by recommending cost saving flights and other logistics. I have already recommended their service to friends and will continue to do so.
