My friend and I recently returned from a three day trip to zanzibar and we stayed in matemwe bandas, the experience was simply amazing and in many ways humbling infact,starting with the kindness of the owner(Tom) and his lovely georgous wife, the efficiency and availabity of staff,the beauty and comfort of the rooms with a fusion of both tradition and mordern blend, the location of the rooms right at the front of the sea with a crazy breath taking morning view and sea breeze to wake up to for a life time, the internet super fast actually better than my friends back home, it worked for me just perfect and my relationship with my phone was much catered for.
I honestly couldn't find anything to complain about, definitely five stars all way and it was the best Zanzibar experience ever.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE HOTEL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Matemwe Bandas is as faithful to its natural surroundings and to the highest levels of luxury as we are to millennia old traditions of local master craftsmanship. We are also a fair trade business that is substantially locally owned, while every member of our team (including our four young apprentices) hails from the village of Matemwe around our property.With private direct access from your verandah, Matemwe’s breathtaking beach is only a step away. You can walk along its majestic palmed-lined breadth on dazzlingly white, super fine sand basking in the brilliant tropical sunshine for miles in both directions, only occasionally coming across other people. Nestling on the beach's edge in rustic exclusivity, our luxury coco wood and palm thatch bungalows share an elegant 11m x 5m swimming fresh water pool and sandy, decked and canopy-covered communal areas. We offer butler service and a la carte local & international fusion cuisine. We also provide high speed Wi-Fi Internet access, laundry service and mineral water in the bandas for free to all residents. ... more less
