General Information

Matemwe Retreat consists of four self contained private villas, each with uninterrupted views of the turquoise Indian Ocean. The villas have been designed to cater for those looking for pure escapism and feature in-house dining and private butler service

The ground floor of each villa features a private bar area, an air-conditioned bedroom and a bathroom with double basins, shower and a large oversized bathtub looking out towards the ocean. A spacious veranda equipped with a comfortable couch and large hammock provides the perfect spot to unwind and watch the fishing dhows returning from sea. The private roof terrace hosts a plunge pool complete with both sun and shade decks. The villa is situated above a small beach, which is shared by all 4 villas.

The service is excellent, breakfast is served daily on your private veranda. Each day the manager or chef will stop by to discuss lunch and dinner preferences. The catch of the day can be served in the privacy of your garden or roof terrace, or a dinner at Matemwe’s main lodge, where you can enjoy the company of other guests.

You are free to venture to the main lodge at any time where you can enjoy two swimming pools, lush tropical gardens, a restaurant, a cocktail bar and beauty treatments on offer.



Matemwe Retreat is located on an amazing stretch of private land, just north of Matemwe’s main lodge and opposite the Mnemba Atoll.
