This was the perfect get away for our honeymoon. Jason and Karen were the perfect hosts. The water was an amazing temp which complemented the excellent diving conditions. Seafood almost everyday and candle light dinners on the beach were idyllic. If you want to get away from everything this is the perfect spot.

We went to Matemo Resort for our honeymoon in November. Jason, Karen and the Matemo team ensured that our every need was met in a unassuming and easy manner. We did 4 amazing dives, with the one off Ibo Island being the most memorable. The fish life is abundant, the coral breathtaking and the water so warm. The rooms are... More

Matemo is the picture perfect beach holiday. The accommodation is luxurious, with well furnished rooms, right on the shoreline. The food is a 3 couse meal, with 2selections for the mains. The food is very well prepared and very tasty. Free wifi in the common area, that is always a plus point in any resort. The scuba diving is very... More

I visited Matemo with my husband, I will remember this as the experience of a lifetime. We had excellent weather and the clear blue ocean all around the island was perfect for swimming. Our beach chalet was not even 10m from the ocean, and we spend most mornings in the sea. We also went on a sundowner cruise on a... More
