My wife and I have just returned from Zanzibar where we finished a great trip to the Masai Mari on Safari with 5 nights at Matemwe Retreat. We stayed in ZamZam and Daniel was our butler for the stay, both were perfect. The Retreats are large and very well equipped with everything from a double hammock on the large terrace (great for shade from the hot sun), a massive comofrtable bed, a huge bathroom with bath over looking the Ocean, through to the secluded sun terrace with plunge pool on the roof.
When we were in Zanzibar, the Island was still suffering from no mains electric supply which had been out of service for about 4 months. Despite this, we had full electric supply as a result of the generators Matemwe had installed.
All of the staff at Matemwe (the Lodge and the Retreat) were friendly, helpful and fun. Nothing was too much trouble and we had some great times. Snorkling off Mnemba Atoll was magnificent, which included diving into the Ocean and swimming with a passing team of dolphins.
We have no hesitation in recommending Matemwe Retreat as a perfect location for a relaxed, intimate, luxury holiday away from it all.
