Matemwe Lodge

Matemwe Lodge

Relax with views of a quiet coral-fringed lagoon at one of the first lodges to be established in Zanzibar.

Matemwe Lodge is a luxury lodge located on the north-east coast of Zanzibar, just off the coast of Tanzania. Perched on a coral rock, the resort offers spectacular sea views. Guests can look forward to quiet village life at this resort, filled with plenty of holiday reading, hammock swinging and relaxing massages.

Description, Services & Facilities

Matemwe Lodge was one of the very first lodges to be built in Zanzibar and has over 20 years’ experience in providing warm hospitality to honeymooners, families and safari-goers alike. Perched on a low coral rock overlooking a coral fringed lagoon, Matemwe Lodge is the ultimate beach base in Zanzibar. There are just 12 individual chalets to choose from, each offering an en-suite bathroom and some with private plunge pools.

Spend your days diving and snorkelling around the adjacent Mnemba Atoll, a small round coral reef and famous dive spot. Those looking to head further afield can explore Mnemba island marine park, just a short boat ride away or stroll the streets of Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located just an hour away. Matemwe Lodge welcomes children aged 6 years and up. 
There is an open-air restaurant overlooking the ocean where guests can look forward to ocean-fresh seafood and exotic cocktails at sunset.
