beautiful and spaciuos location, friendly staff, excellent organization, great food & service, white beaches, superb diving & snorkling possibilities with private boat ...
Our Spring Break could not have been better and this property made it all possible. As two couples traveling with two children, the stunning location and amiable staff made each day very easy. Working with the estate manager, we easily arranged for a number of outings, excursions, and other details -- not to mention the amazing food prepared on site by the talented chef. The design and arrangement of the property make this ideal for larger groups, as no one will ever feel crowded. I wouldn't hesitate to book this exceptional location again. Highly recommended.
Two, widely traveled, couples spent a week here after a safari in Zanzibar. The accommodations, and the location, are stunning.
This is a great Villa if you want total luxury, while also being integrated into the day to day activities of an authentic small town. The photos do not capture the wonder of Matemwe Beach. Each day, women dressed in wonderful African garb would spend low tide searching for dinner. Men would use a locally crafted spear gun find fish for market. And at 4:00 p.m., local school children would come to the beach and use it as their soccer field. We loved all of this.
At low tide, we joined the locals and walked to a barrier reef. It was a grand adventure. At high tide, we swam in some of the warmest, and most beautiful water, you will ever see.
The Villa is fully staffed and many more could have joined us there in comfort. The chef and service were top notch. There are a couple of other places to eat within easy walking distance, but they are not as good as the house chef. Our toughest decision each day was "where do you want your next meal served!!"
We only took one day trip from Villa. We visited a spice farm and had a tour of Stone Town. Stone Town might merit an entire day. So much history and an overwhelming sensory experience. We also used the Villa boat to take a snorkeling trip.
In summary, the Villa offers tremendous value; particularly for larger group. It is a beautiful and relatively quiet beach, with lots of local culture. Day trip to Stone Town is a must. If this sounds like your cup of tea, book it. Particularly great after a Safari experience.
Villa has been for us an amazing retreat - for both - my family who were looking to share happy moments together, as well as for myself and my partner - we discovered this villa as an amazing romantic escape. The feel of peaceful ambience, beautiful ocean front location, well designed villa facilities surrounded by magnificent garden - certainly made us feel as if we were in Paradise.
Rooms are spacious, elegant. Service is impeccable and accommodating to guests’s requests.
Definitely would be looking forward to come back..
