Asilia Matemwe Retreat

Discover Asilia Matemwe Retreat

Matemwe Retreat is located on an amazing stretch of private land, just north of Matemwe's main lodge and right opposite the Mnemba Atoll. The Retreat consists of 4 fabulous, separate villas, all of which share a small beach. The ground floor of each villa features a private bar area, an air conditioned bedroom and a bathroom. A spacious veranda equipped with a comfortable couch and large hammock provide the perfect spot to unwind. The private roof terrace hosts a plunge pool complete with both sun and shade decks.

Though the villas are uniquely beautiful, it is the personal service at Matemwe Retreat that makes it such a remarkable place to stay. Meals can be served on your private terrace or in the gardens of Matemwe Retreat by a personal butler who will also arrange any activity desired, from a snorkelling trip or spice tour, to a lazy cocktail by the private plunge pool. For a more sociable atmosphere, it's just a 5-10 minute walk down to the restaurant at Matemwe Lodge, where you can also relax by the bar or pool or simply interact with other guests.
