Matemwe Lodge, previously known as Matemwe Bungalows boasts a stunning location between 2 sublime beaches on the northeast coast of Zanzibar. The striking lodge is superbly perched on a bluff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the Mnemba Island beyond. Situated about an hour’s drive from Zanzibar International Airport and Stone Town, this exceptional lodge offers guests a peaceful retreat away from the hubbub of the other resorts on the island. Matemwe has stood the test of time as one of the first resorts on the island and this is evident in the quality of service and the delightful experience guests feel at this superb lodge. Zanzibar accommodation is in 12 whitewashed stone chalets with high thatched roofs, all recently furbished in keeping with the times. Privacy galore for guests in their chalets that are constructed of natural materials and set in lovely gardens. The suites are capacious and offer private terraces complete with a hammock and daybed from which to absorb the sun and seascape. Each suite is en-suite featuring a large bath and walk-in shower and the comfortable beds are draped in mosquito nets. Matemwe Lodge has an open-sided restaurant just above the sea and a peaceful lounge area with excellent vistas of the palm fringed beach and gently rocking dhows. The lodge also feature 2 swimming pools, one of which is an infinity pool. From this pool is a waterfall that trickles down to the second pool below.
