Dining & Entertainment

The restaurant, which is situated in the main thatch area of the lodge, caters for all meals, as well as offering a small snack menu available at the pool bar throughout the day.

Daily menus are small but carefully planned to satisfy all seafood lovers, non-seafood lovers and vegetarians.


Located on the north east coast of Zanzibar, close to the Mnemba Atoll, the Matemwe area is a very special part of the island. Those photos you see of long white beaches, aqua waters and swaying palm trees… that is Matemwe’s reality!

But despite the outstanding natural beauty, Matemwe has not been taken over by resorts or haphazard and ugly developments. Matemwe is 45 minutes away from Stone Town and an hour from the airport on a good tarmac road.


While there is an internet and phone service from the reception office, the connection is not completely reliable. If you need to work while on holiday, Matemwe Beach Village is perhaps not the place for you! But if you want to relax, chill, unwind and have time out then this is totally what you’ve been searching for!
