Matemwe Retreat


Matemwe Retreat offers four exclusive villas set just metres from the Indian Ocean. The spacious rooms are decorated in a vibrant island motif, with a private deck and plunge pool for lazy afternoons in the sun.

Days at 'the Retreat' are all about indulgence, from the private butler catering to your every whim to the chef stopping by each morning to discuss your preferred menu for the day. 

A stay at Matemwe Retreat will be hard to top, with views form your private deck and plunge pool stretching as far as the eye can see across azur blue ocean waters, you'll wake up to the sounds of the waves lapping against the shoreline in this island paradise.
