Each suite has a private veranda, with a hammock and couch from which you have a glorious view of the Indian Ocean. The bathroom is large with a deep bathtub and walk-in shower. Although mosquitoes are rare in Matemwe, all rooms are equipped with a large mosquito net.
The open-air restaurant overlooks the ocean and has a tranquil lounge area. Seafood is the specialty of the house, with all produce bought daily from the local markets. Lunch is a buffet offering a delicious mix of African and European flavours.
Dinner provides you with a wide choice of main courses which includes fish, meat and vegetarian options.
Take time off to relax on lounge chairs surrounding the a multi-level swimming pool with its glorious view of the sea. Freshly mixed cocktails are served at the poolside bar.
Ngalawas, fleets of traditional wooden sailing boats, pass by Matemwe, delivering a dream for any photographer. The lodge is a daily stop for the fishermen who sell fresh crab, lobster and fish to Matemwe for lunches and dinners.
