Zanzibar’s crystal clear waters and palm-fringed beaches make it one of the most romantic settings in East Africa. Add to that the island’s exotic cultural heritage, the heady scent of spices in the air, and the inspiring architecture, a visit to the Spice Island is the perfect backdrop to a memorable romantic breakaway.
Matemwe Retreat provides the ideal location for couples who wish to enjoy a private tropical escape. Set high on a rocky outcrop surrounded by swaying palm trees with uninterrupted Indian Ocean views, the Retreat’s secluded location and dedicated private butler and chef create one of the most exclusive choices of accommodation on Zanzibar Island.
Matemwe Retreat’s elegant villas boast private plunge pools, private bar areas, and a spacious roof terrace fitted with all the comforts you could ever need – you’d be forgiven for spending your entire time with us in your hidden sanctuary!
