What we love about Matemwe Beach House

It's perfect for families - The house sleeps up to six people in two double bedrooms on the ground floor and a mezzanine bedroom with two single beds upstairs. The beach house team are great at keeping kids entertained - taking them for football on the beach or exploring the rockpools.

Tailor-made by you - Structure your day to suit the family or groups wishes. Spend the day on excursions suitable for all the family and activity levels, or lounge by your private pool when you feel like staying in.

It's exclusive location - On a secluded stretch of beach, it's located on one of the best beaches in Zanzibar for snorkelling and diving. Privacy and exclusivity are ensured - the beach is one of the quietest on the island.

Rooms and Amenities

Matemwe Beach House consists of three bedrooms - two doubles and one twin. The double rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and a spacious en-suite bathroom

The Beach House has a private plunge pool, an exclusive butler service, and personal bar to grab your favourite drink at.

All food at Matemwe Beach House is sourced locally, and seafood is bought from local suppliers who use sustainable techniques. Why not take a picnic lunch during excursions to the sandbank and Muyuni beach?
