Matemwe Beach House



On the north-eastern stretches of Zanzibar Island, abreast Matemwe Beach, privacy and proximity to the sandy shores of the Indian Ocean are encapsulated by this breath-taking beach house.


With the Matemwe Lodge a short walk from the beach house, there’s never a lack of choice for activities. Whether you’re seeking quiet, relaxation or adventure, Matemwe has all bases covered.

Step out of the ocean and within a few paces you’ve entered the tropical foliage of your personal garden. The beach house has an unassumingly natural feel with its weaved-grass roof and white-washed walls. Open the door and enter a space of island comfort, where the three rooms are tastefully furnished in the colourful blues and reds of the ocean and sunset. Step out onto your private veranda where your plunge pool is out of sight through green manicured foliage. The beach house provides your own chef and butler to make your stay a memorable experience of fine dining and exquisite service.

Wildlife & Activities

Whether you’re snorkelling with wild dolphins, or experiencing the diverse fruits on the island, Matemwe’s diversity of land and water adventures will thrill your senses and invigorate your soul. Scuba diving, kayaking, deep-sea fishing and a sundowner dhow trip will draw you into the waters. Village and forest tours will get your feet on the ground, moving through the island to understand the inner workings of this paradise. A spa is also on hand for guests looking for deeper relaxation.  Matemwe beach house welcomes children of all ages and parties of varying sizes. However, the beach house does not suit disabled guests.
