Matemwe Beach House - The Details

Matemwe’s landscape is famous for the contrasting bright colours of the fine white sand beaches and the Indian Ocean turquoise blues.

A relaxing pace and a daily rhythm that is set by the gentle tides. High tide sees local fishermen sail their billowing dhows across the lagoon, while low tide reveals a fascinating reef that you can explore for hours.

Matemwe Beach House - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our team below.

Matemwe Beach House is one of the best private houses available for rent in Zanzibar. Yes it is one of the highest priced on the island, but the location, service, quality of food and availability of facilities are first class. It’s very rare in Zanzibar to have a private house with private pool that opens directly onto the beach, and for that beach to be completely empty of other tourists, but that’s exactly what you get here. For a family looking for privacy and the feeling of seclusion this is perfect. The fact that all your food is also included through the same kitchen that serves Matemwe Lodge and Matemwe Retreat gives you a good indication of the quality on offer. You’re also perfectly located to take advantage of the excellent diving and snorkelling around Mnemba Island just off shore. A holiday at Matemwe Beach House offers the same quality you can get at the best hotels on the island, but with the privacy only found at a select few properties.
