Matemwe Beach House

The ultimate luxury at Matemwe Beach House

Matemwe Beach House reflects the rich and varied history of the island as a large home away from home destination created as a sole-use villa for Zanzibar Island holidays made for private groups or families. Matemwe Beach House stands proud beside the well-known Matemwe Beach Lodge and boasts some of the best views across the Indian Ocean from the entire spice island.  

A hammock and large sofa take prime position on the wooden deck outside and the private pool completes the outside space then the garden meets the beach sands and you can swim all day. Voyage2Africa creates the best holiday deals to Zanzibar for your family here!

Settle into this large house warmly decorated in typical Zanzibar style carved furniture and brightly coloured carpets and throws. Three bedrooms make this private villa ideal for small family groups or friends sleeping 6 people on king size beds with a delightful room upstairs too and two ensuite bathrooms with showers. 

Air conditioning downstairs and fans upstairs cool the air while the gorgeous dazzling swimming pool refreshes all ages. Sprawl on the timber deck on soft bean bags, comfy couches and sun loungers while your personal butler brings you a drink and makes you a snack. A talented private chef cooks up a storm in the kitchen allowing guests to chill, hit the ocean and disappear to the beach all day.

Spend hours snorkelling at Mnemba Atoll over the reefs in a conservation marine area where turtles and dolphins swim. Do a dive course or adventure into dive sites known by pro divers then cruise in a boat around the shores to explore the wildlife and birds. Sea and Spice Spa is there for you offering massages and skin treatments after long hot days in the sun.



Located on the quieter northeast coast of Zanzibar, Matemwe Beach House is perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking a shallow coral fringed lagoon, close to its sister holiday destination, Matemwe Beach Lodge but entirely private. Beautiful fleets of fishermen in traditional dhows sail past daily on their way to and from their fishing grounds while privileged guests enjoy their unique holiday package deal in their own villa. 

Just metres from the chalky white beach, Matemwe Beach House offers extraordinary views overlooking the ocean. Not far off shore, Mnemba Atoll offers some of the best scuba diving in East Africa within a marine protected area. Palm-thatched villages dot the shoreline where friendly locals live a traditional life by fishing in this tourist vacation destination on Zanzibar Island. 

Voyage2Africa recommends this classic and lavish 3-bedroomed private villa as the perfect escape for families or groups looking for a private slice of Zanzibar’s beautiful coastline. The best part about this accommodation on the spice island is the access to the Mnemba marine sanctuary, a private chef and butler and time to bond around a large swimming pool on soft couches and bean bags. 

Choose fresh seafood meals from the fishermen’s daily catch and watch your chef bring it all together in a fusion of culinary delights.  Dining can be enjoyed in the privacy of the house on the deck or in Matemwe’s Main Lodge with other guests.

Snorkelling, kayaking, boat trips and dive excursions are easy to arrange but relaxing in the private swimming pool, soaking up the tranquil surroundings may be what you are looking for. All are appealing and within easy reach so ask your personal butler to arrange excursions to suit your mood. Choose a Zanzibar tour today and we will book this amazing private house for you.
