Our opinion: Matemwe is a lovely rustic lodge and is an old favourite of many travellers to Zanzibar. The rooms have lots of character and a lot of local materials have been used to decorate and build the rooms.
The new Suites are looking fabulous (see photo above). They are very private and they all boast a large rooftop terrace & a private plunge pool.
The newly opened Matemwe Villa is a private 3-bedroom villa set on a hillside just beyond the watersports centre is fully self-contained with its own pool, dining area & kitchen. Great option for families.
