The hotel has twelve double rooms, with the possibility of adding one or two extra beds or to combine into a larger family unit. Two rooms have their private balconies, overlooking the sea, and most of the other rooms are connected with a large wooden veranda with outdoor furniture. All rooms contain all the necessary amenities; air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and ceiling/floor fan. The rooms are decorated in a typical Zanzibarian style, with furnishings in a beautifully carved dark wood, canopy beds (king size, twin or single) with mosquito nets, and bedside tables and wardrobes. Another decor varies from room to room. All rooms have of course a private bathroom with shower (except for family accommodation where two rooms share a bathroom).
Meals are served on the large shaded veranda overlooking the beach and the Indian Ocean. The good dining experience is enhanced by warm winds from the ocean. The restaurant has a professional staff that makes an exciting mix of European-inspired cuisine and local flavors of fine ingredients. If you want, you can also try the traditional Tanzanian/Zanzibarian dishes. Beside the restaurant is the bar, as well overlooking the beach and the ocean. There are drinks for every taste – soft drinks, beer, wine, cocktails. In addition to cold drinks, we offer delicious coffee in various forms. Enjoy the drinks in the bar or by the pool or in any of the relaxing sofas or cushion corners.
The pool (16 x8 meters) beside the hotel building is surrounded by a limestone deck. Lye in the sun, or under the shady parasols. When you close your eyes you hear the oceans´ roar from the reef off the horizon. Massage and henna painting can be arranged on the beach or in our “banda” (hut).
Matemwe beach is located a few meters away from your breakfast table and is the longest beach on the island. The white powdery coral sand invites you to relax walks, swimming when not low tide, or perhaps a bike ride?
