Matemwe Retreat

Matemwe Retreat

Matemwe Retreat offers four exclusive villas set just yards from the Indian Ocean. 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 bathtub looking out towards the ocean.  The spacious rooms are decorated in a vibrant island motif, with a private veranda and private plunge pool for lazy days in the sun.

A comfortable couch and a large hammock on the veranda provide the perfect spot to unwind and watch the fishing dhows returning from sea. Days at the Retreat are all about indulgence, from the private butler catering to every whim to the chef stopping by each morning to discuss your preferred menu for the day.

Matemwe Retreat also offers a wide range of activities such as snorkeling and diving around the Mnemba atoll, sailing in traditional nglawa outriggers, traditional and deep-sea fishing, guided reef walks in front of the bungallows and a large variety of spa treatments. A perfect place for honeymooners.
