Matemwe Lodge was the perfect ending to our 4week African holiday. It was all we had hoped for to relax before returning home Ross, Marco,Martin and all the staff made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and they always remembered our names! We chose to do nothing but chill out by the infinity pool and have a... More

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

Arrived late at night to a welcome drink of coconut milk from the freshly cut coconut and a freshening towel. Marco then asked us if we were hungry (we had left Nairobi at 6:45 and thus missed dinner). The chef cooked us a meal despite the lateness of the hour. That was a real welcome. We stayed in lodges 1,2... More

The rooms are very well kept, spacious and comfortable and each a have their own sea view where one looks out over a coral reef. Meals were all very well prepared and very... More

Getting here first by public means can be crazy. It took us around 1.5 hours. The road trip was worth it. Beautiful everything!!!! :) people, surroundings, beach. we also enjoyed the water sports. Sigh. I need December to come quickly so that I can go back.

Fantastic relaxing time over Xmas 2014 at Matemwe. The 'bungalows' somewhat lack in character and magic but the location is stunning, the staff wonderful and Yummy the Chef was outstanding. I shall always remember those delicious breakfasts after dipping in the ocean in the morning, scrumptious lunches after snorkelling and curry dinners beautifully presented and delicious. The perfect place to... More

The staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and comfortable. The resort is located on a coral beach so swimming in the ocean was impossible. The snorkeling trip coast extra but it was a lot of fun.

I stayed at matemwe bungalows recently, it was my first time in Zanzibar. I had an incredible time at the hotel, the staff were amazing, the food excellent, all held together with superb management. Each room has an ocean front view, I loved the whole place and hope to return one day!

Despite a low pressure over Madagascar causing the weather to be a little less than perfect for our few days here we were so pleased to have spent our entire holiday from grey old January daubed England at this extremely lovely lodge. We arrived without our luggage thanks to Precision Air, but NOTHING was a problem at Matemwe Lodge. Marvellous... More

After a week's stay in Asilia's Kwihala camp and one night in Stonetone we arrived for a two night stay at Matemwe Lodge. It's a perfect place to relax! The beach house was great and the food and service in the restaurant was of excellent quality. We can recommend to do the snorkel tour guided by Ibrahim. He is a... More
