Set on the northeast coast of Zanzibar, vibrant yet relaxed this Lodge is perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking a pretty, coral-fringed lagoon.
It consists of 12 stylish bungalows, built from local materials and surrounded by beautiful garden. Each suite has a private veranda with hammocks and couches overlooking the Indian Ocean. Whether guests sink into a hammock or dive the depths of the Indian Ocean, the Lodge is an unbeatable island escape and the ideal place to unwind. Inside the room, you’ll find a grand, king-size bed, an extra single bed, plenty of space and personal touches. The bathrooms are large and have deep bathtubs and walk-in showers. Although mosquitoes are rare in Matemwe, all rooms are equipped with a large mosquito net.
There is Â a multi-level swimming pool surrounded with lounge chairs overlooking the ocean. Freshly mixed cocktails are served at the poolside bar. Ngalawas, fleets of traditional wooden sailing boats, pass by the Lodge delivering a dream for any photographer and the lodge is a daily stop for the fishermen who sell fresh crab, lobster and fish for lunches and dinners. Enjoy this sight at early morning, when fresh coffee and delicious cookies are served at your veranda. In the evening, the full moon rising out of the sea is a wonderfully romantic experience. For those who need to make contact with the outside world, there are internet and telephone/fax facilities.
The open-air restaurant overlooks the ocean and has a tranquil area to lounge in as well. Seafood is the specialty of the house, with all produce bought daily from the local markets. Lunch is a buffet, offering a delicious mix of African and European flavours. Dinner offers a choice of main courses with fish, meat and vegetarian options.
