Matemwe Retreat consists of 3 fabulous, separate villas, full of atmosphere, inspiration, and personal touches. The ground floor of each spacious villa features a private cocktail bar, an air-conditioned bedroom, a bathroom with double basins, shower, and large romantic bathtub overlooking the Indian Ocean. The best part of each villa is the plunge pool on the private roof terrace, complete with sun and shade decks. The cherry on top of this endulgence is that each vila has its own small beach right in front.
The service in the Retreat includes breakfast served on the private veranda of your room. Drinks are served in the room or on the beach and you can have massages and beauty treatments in the comfort of your roof terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean.
Each day the manager or chef will stop by to discuss lunch and dinner preferences: the catch of the day served in the privacy of your garden or roof terrace or a dinner at Matemwe's main lodge, where you can enjoy the company of other guests. The open-air restaurant overlooks the ocean and has a tranquil area to lounge in as well. Seafoodis the specialty of the house, with all produce bought daily from the local markets.
