Enjoy your own private tropical escape at Matemwe Retreat. The four elegant villas that make up the Retreat are set high in the palm trees with uninterrupted Indian Ocean views. With its secluded location and dedicated private butler, the Retreat is considered one of the most exclusive choices of accommodation on Zanzibar Island.
If you are looking for pure escapism, these villas – which combine the spirit of Zanzibar with the highest standards of comfort – were designed for you. The private plunge pool, personal bar and spacious roof terrace with day bed and loungers are so appealing that we would not blame you if you relaxed in your hidden sanctuary for your entire holiday.
The ground floor of each villa features a private bar area, an air conditioned bedroom and a bathroom with double basins, shower and a large oversized bathtub looking out towards the ocean.
A spacious veranda equipped with a comfortable couch and large hammock provides the perfect spot to unwind and watch the fishing dhows returning from their day at sea. The private roof terrace hosts a plunge pool complete with both sun and shade decks. The villa is situated above a small beach which is shared by all 4 villas.
The villas were constructed by local craftsmen using local materials wherever possible: walls were made of local stone and the roof of Makuti thatch. Most of the furniture was made from locally produced coconut wood, while the soft furnishings were produced by Zanzibari women.
