Matemwe Bandas Boutique Hotel, Zanzibar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2012

my girlfriend and I stayed here in mid August and were super impressed. The bungalow we stayed in was directly on the beach and had a large king size bed and an incredible view of the ocean. It reminded me of a place we stayed at in Pemba fundu lagoon. Simple but very zanzibarian in style and top finishes.

The food was top rate and was one of the best we had on our 3 week vacation on the island. You get the feeling here like your family and the owners Tom and chi chi give the place an inviting atmosphere with both local and western influences. There is also a large brand new pool and awesome lounge area to chill in.

Another nice element is that this part of matemwe is very peaceful and quite. We felt like we could actually relax here on the beach with out being constantly harassed by beach boys and fake Masai.

All in all this was one of our favorite places and would highly recommend this small hotel to anyone seeking something quite with world class service and an inviting atmosphere.

Here you get real service and personal butler. Nothing is too much for the staff they do anything for you. Want to have dinner on the beach - no problem. Want to swim in the huge pool and have a cocktail anything you want is possible. Here barefoot chic is the word and it is run to perfection. The room are villa suites and look onto the beach making it the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
THE HOTEL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Matemwe Bandas is as faithful to its natural surroundings and to the highest levels of luxury as we are to millennia old traditions of local master craftsmanship. We are also a fair trade business that is substantially locally owned, while every member of our team (including our four young apprentices) hails from the village of Matemwe around our property.With private direct access from your verandah, Matemwe’s breathtaking beach is only a step away. You can walk along its majestic palmed-lined breadth on dazzlingly white, super fine sand basking in the brilliant tropical sunshine for miles in both directions, only occasionally coming across other people. Nestling on the beach's edge in rustic exclusivity, our luxury coco wood and palm thatch bungalows share an elegant 11m x 5m swimming fresh water pool and sandy, decked and canopy-covered communal areas. We offer butler service and a la carte local & international fusion cuisine. We also provide high speed Wi-Fi Internet access, laundry service and mineral water in the bandas for free to all residents. ... more   less
