Matemwe Beach Village

Zanzibar Coast, Zanzibar

Matemwe Beach Village is an authentic guesthouse located on the north east corner of the exotic island of Zanzibar.  Renowned for long stretches of white sandy beaches, Matenwe is still a relatively sleepy fishing town, and has so far avoided being taken over by the largest resorts and hotel development.

Matemwe Beach Village provides comfortable accommodation in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. On offer are 16 standard rooms with self-contained bathrooms; and 5 funky Shamba Suites with space for a small family. The Asali suite – usually booked by honeymooners or those wanting seclusion – provides your own chef and plunge pool! Wherever possible food is bought locally and the lodge supports the local women’s cooperative. One Ocean – the 5 star PADI Dive centre – organizes diving, dive courses and snorkelling, as well as daily excursions to the famous Mnemba Atoll.

Accommodation Reviews

The food was excellent and the environment relaxing. The Boat / Reef trip was excellent.

A wonderful place to relax and do nothing. Spoiled with romantic dinner on the beach.

Matemwe was absolutely beautiful and is the best chill out place we’ve ever been to. Probably could have done with a bit more shade on the beach, but it was all so peaceful, even at night, and we slept like babies! Lovely staff.

Matemwe Beach resort was just what was needed before we returned home even for our four night stay I am glad we upgraded!! Our “suite” was wonderful and we did spend a lot of time on our roof terrace as it was exceptionally hot whilst we were there and it just allowed us to chill in our own space. Once again the food was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the bar-b-que night and the opportunity to interact with other guests. I am still “seeing” the turquoise sea and I am afraid the North Sea off the Yorkshire coast does not hold quite the same appeal!!
