My wife and our two sons aged 16 and 18 have just spent 5 nights half-board here after a safari. The place was booked by our tour operator - Africa Travel Resource - who understood our needs and did not disappoint. If you are after a luxury room/ hotel in a town with vibrant night-life and lots to do and... More

We had a great time staying at Matemwe Beach Village. The location is on the most beautiful stretch of beach. It was very quiet and not for those who want somewhere with a lot of night life. All of the staff were fantastic, in particular the manager who was happy to help with anything we needed. The hotel itself was... More

We stayed 4 nights in Matemwe Beach Village, and we enjoyed every moment. The beach is the white sand beach, which you think exist only in advertisements, the lodge merges the natural surroundings with an English garden like feel in an utterly African style and atmosphere. In the time we stayed we still explored new impressions within the compound just... More

We stayed here last November, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The cottages are simply furnished but have everything you need, and are either close to the beach or in lovely gardens. The beach itself is spectacular, clean and unspoilt, and it's great to walk along in the evening and watch a passionate local football game. You can only... More

We, my husband and our 7-year old son, stayed here for 4 nights in the end of February 2015. We were upgraded to Shamba suite #1, which was good, as we travelled there straight from home in northern Europe (didn't do a mainland safari) and appreciated the AC. Only the master bedroom has AC, though. We really appreciated the open... More

The rooms vary in size and decor, we had a triple one at the back of the plot. The room was decent enough with an aircon (which would work better if all the windows were glazed...) but food was delicious. Though the pool was unusable when we were there and the tides really affect the swimming possibilities, it did not... More

Matemwe Beach Village is a very sweet and lovely place. We had an experience that will not be common to most. We booked an economy room, and when we arrived they upgraded us to the honeymoon suite! Our second honeymoon after 30 years! What luxury! A pool in our living room. So refreshing! The ocean water was remarkable in its'... More
