Matemwe Lodge


Matemwe Lodge Location Map

Vibrant yet relaxed, Matemwe Lodge has perfected the tropical island experience. Perched on an outcrop overlooking a shallow coral fringed lagoon on the quieter north-east coast of Zanzibar, Matemwe’s peaceful location and famed relaxed atmosphere makes it the ideal place to unwind.

The open-air restaurant sits just above the sea and has a tranquil lounge area with beautiful views of the palm fringed beach and gently rocking dhows. Seafood is the specialty of the house, with all produce bought daily from the local markets. Lunch is a buffet offering a delicious mix of African and European flavours. Dinner offers a choice of main courses with fish, meat and vegetarian options. Matemwe has a multi-level swimming pool surrounded with lounge chairs overlooking the ocean. Freshly mixed cocktails are served at the poolside bar.

The lodge has plenty on offer for the more active with superb diving and snorkelling off the renowned Mnembe Atoll - a highlight for many. 

Built from local materials and surrounded by beautiful lush gardens, each of the 12 spacious suites has a private veranda with a hammock and sofa and expansive views of the Indian Ocean with its constantly changing hues of blue. Here you can watch the fishermen head out every morning at dawn or listen to the songs of the village women as they harvest seaweed.

The large bathrooms have both a deep bathtub and walk-in shower and all beds are enclosed by mosquito nets.
