Observe traditional dhows skim the surface of the ebbing and flowing Indian Ocean from your rooftop terrace’s private plunge pool or your shaded verandah’s hammock. Drawing honeymooners and born romantics, the secluded villas at Matemwe Retreat on Zanzibar island hint at untold luxury.
Zanzibar – often referred to as the spice island in reference to its long history of trade – offers the tropical island escape made famous by countless magazine covers and globe-trotting friends. Its historical capital, Stone Town, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while its translucent waters house a plethora of marine life and vivid coral reefs. Matemwe, found on the north-eastern coast of the island, is best known for having the longest beach in Zanzibar and for its unspoilt landscape.
Matemwe Retreat’s four villas will wrap guests in a dizzying embrace of seclusion and luxury. In-house dining is prepared by your chef, while your personal butler will ensure that your stay is nothing short of perfect. Matemwe’s villas share a private beach and overlook the snorkelling and diving mecca found on Mnemba Island.
