Matemwe Bandas Boutique Hotel
is located in the Matemwe
area on the northeast coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Matemwe Bandas Boutique Hotel is a very high quality small beach guest-house set at the southern end of Matemwe village at the back of an enormous white-sand beach above a stunning coral lagoon. It has just five guest rooms, intimate public areas and a small swimming pool. The lodge is a partnership between expat and local people and is known for its intimate and friendly service, as well as excellent food. The diving in the area is excellent and there is a wide range of marine and other activities available.
The main potential downsides at Matemwe Bandas Boutique Hotel are that the lodge is relatively expensive, situated on a tight plot very much in the village and is a very simple build, with the rooms very close together. Also there is no dedicated watersports centre. The beach is not private and the lagoon is very tidal. Excursions to the south of the island are a little distant and there is very little night-life in the area.UpsidesActivitiesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
