Matemwe Bungalows 3 star north east coast
Matemwe Bungalows

The rural north-east coast of Zanzibar is well-known for its fine weather and natural beauty, the Sunny Side of Paradise! After years of loving care the garden of Matemwe Bungalows forms a small oasis in this otherwise dry scrub bush land. Enjoy the contrasting colours of the Indian Ocean, the fine powder sand of the beach, the extreme beauty of the coral reef and the wild bush vegetation.

The open-walled restaurant is gloriously positioned with views of the ocean. It's decorated attractively with light wooden tables and dark-blue canvas chairs.

Meals combine African and European flavours. Breakfast is a variety of fruit, yoghurt, eggs and bread. Lunch is a generous buffet and dinner usually is a three-course, set meal with a choice of meat, fish or vegetarian. The desserts are always delicious.

The chef buys fish direct from the fishermen each morning. If you manage to catch a fish the chef will be happy to cook it for your dinner.

There is a delightful open-air beach bar built around an old dhow under the palm trees on the sand. You can lounge on sofas and sun beds and enjoy cocktails or have a sedate cup of tea. A selection of games is also available at the beach bar and we found the service very friendly.

Matemwe does accept children of all ages. However there are better suited hotels elsewhere on the island of Zanzibar.

Matemwe Bungalows is an ideal spot for a romantic holiday or honeymoon! This guesthouse is easy going and unpretentious. Your hosts will make you feel genuinely welcome and their attention to detail is phenomenal!
