Matemwe Retreat is constructed on a private stretch of land, just north of Matemwe's main lodge and right opposite Mnemba Island and consists of three fabulous villas, full of personal touches. The ground floor features spacious verandas, a private cocktail bar, an air conditioned bedroom, a bathroom with double vanities, a shower and a bath overlooking the Indian Ocean. On the private roof terrace, guests will find a plunge pool and sun and shade decks. In front of the rooms, there is a small beach that is private for guests of the Retreat. This property is ideal for honeymooners or couples looking for seclusion, peace and quiet.
Breakfasts are served on the veranda and later in the day, the manager or chef will stop by to discuss lunch and dinner preferences: the catch of the day served in the privacy of the garden or roof terrace or a dinner at Matemwe's main lodge. Drinks are served in the room or on the beach and guests can receive massages and beauty treatments in the comfort of their roof terrace.
The Retreat is built by local craftsmen, where possible from local materials. Walls are of local stone, roofs are made of makuti (woven palm leaves) and most furniture is made of locally produced coconut wood. Soft furnishings are also locally produced.
