Health and Wellness
Enrich your stay on Zanzibar with a focus on your health and wellbeing, ranging from fitness activities to pampering spa treatments and mindfulness practice. Based at Matemwe Lodge, you will make the most of the resident yoga instructor and spa, as well as various activities both on water and land around the island.
The package can be adapted to be more fitness-focussed if you wish, with running routes up to 50km for athletic types, to a more sedate combination if wellness and unwinding is a greater focus. To maximise your feel-good factor, the stand-up paddleboarding activity is combined with a clean-up of the mangrove forests on the shore of the island, helping collect plastic waste from the ocean and mangroves while you paddle. The package includes three spa treatments, three yoga/meditation/pranayama sessions, an accompanied run with one of the Matemwe staff members and an afternoon stand-up paddleboarding session.
Arrive on Zanzibar island in the afternoon and transfer from the airport to Matemwe Lodge in the north of the island, around a 1.5-hour drive, passing sugar cane plantations and spice farms on the way. Acclimatise to your new surroundings and enjoy time at one of the two swimming pools or on the beach. Start your wellness journey with a Konokono Healing treatment, a 90-minute treatment using the healing energies of seashells combined with a scalp and face massage to aid your relaxation.
