The ground floor at each of the Retreat's suites features an air-conditioned bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and a spacious open sided veranda with a private cocktail bar and lounge area. The second floor is a private roof-top terrace with sun loungers, a shaded lounge and a plunge pool. Every room has access to a small private beach for guests of Matemwe Retreat.
Though the rooms are wonderful, it is the service at Matemwe Retreat which makes it such a special place to stay. Lunch and dinner can be served on the private terrace of the rooms, or in the gardens of Matemwe Retreat. There is always the option of popping down to the restaurant at Matemwe Bungalows for a more sociable atmosphere.
The lodge lies perched on a coral rock, surrounded by idyllic stretches of soft white sand beach and faces out across the Mnemba Atoll, which offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world. Should guests wish to combine relaxation and world class diving with something a little different then a visit to the old Stone Town with its small winding streets, bustling bazaars and magnificent Arabic architecture is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
