Enjoy your own private tropical escape at Matemwe Retreat. The four elegant villas that make up the Retreat are set high in the palm trees with uninterrupted Indian Ocean views. With its secluded location and dedicated private butler, the Retreat is considered one of the most exclusive choices of accommodation on Zanzibar Island.
If you are looking for pure escapism, these villas – which combine the spirit of Zanzibar with the highest standards of comfort – were designed for you. The private plunge pool, personal bar and spacious roof terrace with day bed and loungers are so appealing that we would not blame you if you relaxed in your hidden sanctuary for your entire holiday.
Matemwe Retreat offers four exclusive private villas set just metres from the Indian Ocean. The spacious villas are decorated in a vibrant island motif. Days at the Retreat are all about indulgence, from the private butler catering to your every whim to the chef stopping by each morning to discuss your preferred menu for the day. A spacious veranda with comfortable day bed and loungers, made from locally produced coconut wood, is the perfect spot from which to watch the fishing dhows return with their catch. Upstairs on the private roof terrace, enjoy lazy days beside the plunge pool with both sun and shade decks. In the evening, savour dinner cooked by your private chef under the stars or stroll down to the main lodge for a seafood buffet in the open-air restaurant.
Matemwe Retreat consists of 4 villas on a stretch on palm-fringed land with a small secluded beach just north of Matemwe’s main lodge and opposite Mnemba Island. The villas are just metres from the Indian Ocean.
Each villa has a ground level with veranda. The air conditioned bedroom leads onto a bathroom with shower and bath overlooking the Indian Ocean. The large verandas offer a cocktail bar and plenty of space for private dining. On the top floor you will find a private sun and shade terrace with a plunge pool.
In the evening, dining can be enjoyed in the privacy of your villa or stroll down to the main lodge for a seafood buffet in the open-air restaurant.
The chef stops by each day to introduce special Retreat menu suggestions and the fresh catches of the day, the specialty of Matemwe's acclaimed cuisine, and a private butler is always available to assist with any further needs.
Although guests will find all they need in their room and on the secluded beach, the facilities of Matemwe's main lodge are accessible for Retreat guests.
What a way to spend your holiday in perpetual bliss
