Matemwe Bandas Boutique Hotel

Matemwe Bandas Boutique Hotel is composed of only 4 spacious bandas or 'bungalows', opening directly onto the idyllic white sand Matemwe beach. Discreet personal butler service and excellent unrestricted casual dining combine to provide the ultimate in barefoot luxury eco chic. The Bandas are built to age old construction methods, allowing a seamless flow between the stunning natural surroundings and the interiors which are naturally cooled and furnished with beautiful pieces, made from local materials. Indulgent finishing touches round off the lavishness of the surroundings.

The bandas share their own 11m x 5m swimming pool offering guests the option of fresh water bathing in addition to the warm Indian Ocean. The hotel's other, locally thatched and all-wooden 'makuti' buildings, including massage banda, restaurant & bar are bordered with fine white sand, grass & decking.

Holiday to


Beautiful place, hospitality. Food is not at all what we had expected. lots of fries, burgers and "half made".
