We spent our honeymoon on Matemo Island during December 2011.
Our 10 (ten) day stay was a purely relaxing and blissful experience.
After the long flight from Cape Town we were greeted by the very friendly staff and the complimentary wet towel was much appreciated upon landing on the island.
The entire check in procedure was handled in the impressive reception/lounge area with a proper introduction and an efficient process.
We were escorted to our chalet which was clean, tidy and air conditioned perfectly. The accommodation offered at Matemo Island was exactly as advertised, providing an non commercial, stylish and elegant room with all the expected extras for such a resort.
The food and beverage department can be truly proud of the quality, quantity and service they offer. The buffet breakfast every morning was excellent and not passed over. The three course lunch and dinner meals was prepared to perfection and the prawn and crayfish served in abundance was exactly the reason we selected the resort. Their willingness to personalize your meals on your request was much appreciated.
The activities centre was well prepared to handle all and any request we had, the kayaks, windsurfers and even stand up paddle boards was in excellent condition and well maintained.
The snorkeling along the front portion of the bar area at high tide is amazing, the amount of life moving towards the rocks is amazing and an excellent area to learn someone to snorkel. We snorkeled to the north of the island on a coral reef which was truly mind-blowing. The abundance of life on the coral is unbelievable.
The evenings in the bar area was pleasant and provided time to get to know the other guests and also meet some of the staff. The fully stocked bar and the excellent service by the barmen provided for many a fun filled evening.
All in all Matemo Island resort provides an truly amazing experience, excellent service and the expected luxuries as demanded from resorts similar to this. The unspoiled nature and beauty of the place truly sets it apart from the competition and I will without a moments hesitation recommend the resort to anybody considering an island getaway.
Thank you Jason, Karen, Renoir and Gavin for making this holiday truly exceptional and ensuring we take mothing but fond memories of our stay at Matemo home.
