Spent 4 nights over the Easter break. Was a magical few nights with plenty of good memories and experiences. Located at the diametrically opposite end of the island from the airport, it is a bit of trek to get there. Once you reach the resort, you forget everything else and live through this matrix of multiple shades of blue and... More

We stayed at Matemwe Lodge after our safari and the venue and staff were excellent. Martin and his team work hard to make sure you are well looked after in the quiet secluded resort. Highly recommended!

Magnificent views over the lagoon and perfect white sand and very comfortable rooms with a lovely afternoon breeze. I would highly recommend Matemwe if... More

After 10 days bouncing around Tanzania on Safari, a 3 day rest at the Matemwe Lodge was a great way to end our vacation. Amazing place on the beautiful east coast of Zanzibar Island. Not too far by taxi from Stone Town. Martin, the manager and host, plus the rest of the staff were terrific. Always remembered our names and... More

We were made welcome from the moment we arrived by all the staff Metemwe lodge. Our villa was lovely with stunning views across the reef with the local fisherman heading off for the day's fishing.

We spent 5 great days in this well located lodge. Our bungalow was well equipped and meticulously clean. Loved relaxing swinging in the hammock watching the fishing boats making their way out to the reefs. Chef Yummy and his team provided delicious meals including local fare. We took up the opportunity of a "teach in" with Chef Yummy and now... More
