We have been sending a lot of our dear guests to Matembwe Beach Village - to Gail and her capable staff - always with satisfaction.
Their description is:
Matemwe Beach Village is a Zanzibari guesthouse... Not a hotel and not a resort and we regard this as a matter of pride!
At Matemwe Beach we have guests and not clients, they relax; make themselves at home amongst our books, games and huge cushions. They make great friends with the staff and the other guests. Our aim is a simple one: to provide authentic, stylish and comfortable accommodation, in an atmosphere of relaxed hospitality and friendliness, while services are provided effectively and efficiently. We live in peaceful co-existence with the villagers who conduct their lives amongst us.
Located on the north east coast of Zanzibar, close to the Mnemba Atoll, the Matemwe area is a very special part of Zanzibar. Those photos you see of long white beaches, aqua waters and swaying palm trees... At Matemwe Beach that is our reality!
But despite being outstandingly beautiful Matemwe has not been taken over by resorts or haphazard and ugly developments. We are 45 minutes away from Stone Town and an hour from the airport on a good tarmac road.
We know this will remain on of our best sellers - but will it be approved?
