We came to Zanzibar for our honeymoon and stayed at the Matlai Hotel for 7 days. We had the most amazing experience! The place is gorgeous, only 6 rooms, all facing the pools and the beautiful beach. Service was implacable, we felt like true royalty. Everything is souper clean all the time and they kept on surprising us with small attentions every single day. We will definitely come back in the future and in the meantime we recommend all of those who want to have a perfect vacation to choose this mesmerising hotel. Thank you Matlai for an unforgettable week!
Had an amazing two night stay here that was difficult to leave. Food and service was amazing from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nice added touch of providing some snacks for our journey north to Nungwi. We had our own butler who went above and beyond and we shared a pool with one other couple. The hotel had the friendliest and helpful staff and were able to assist with transport from the airport and to Nungwi. Excellent place for a couples retreat, so relaxing.
“Where to start? The warm and attentive staff, the actual hotel, the beach, the pool, the gorgeous room, the view of both the pool and the beach from the room, the beautiful balcony. Our room was made beautifully every day, they even prepared it for us for night time while we had dinner. The food was excellent! So were the cocktails. The hotel had an a lot of cool areas with hammocks, suspended beds to chill on, gorgeous garden area, etc. They also had a spa on site. For meals, you could request to have it at the restaurant, your own balcony, or a surprise spot. They would put a table in a great spot for you to enjoy dinner, what a dream! The hotel was nice and quiet, with only 6 rooms total on the property. The owner was also very nice and helpful, checking in on us and offering great tips of things to do around.”…
Arrived after a very hard trip. Needed major chill-mode. And got it. What an incredible location. And the property is gorgeous. The food is some of the best I have ever had. And the service was personal, responsive and warm. Loved our time there.
