Matemwe Retreat

Matemwe Retreat is a fantastic addition to Zanzibar, just north of Matemwe Bungalows' main lodge. The Retreat consists of three enormous, split-level beach cottages, which are the ultimate in private luxury.

The ground floor at each of the Retreat's suites features an air-conditioned bedroom, bathroom and a spacious open sided verandah with and lounge area. The second floor is a private roof-top terrace with sun-loungers, shaded lounge and a plunge pool. Every room has access to a small private beach. A personal butler will bring breakfast to the veranda every morning and help arrange the days activities, whether it be diving, a walk, or just a bottle of champagne on the terrace. Lunch and dinner can be served on the private terrace of the rooms, or in the gardens of Matemwe Retreat. There is always the option of popping down to the restaurant at Matemwe Bungalows for a more sociable atmosphere.
