lodge is centred around a single large open-sided space
looking onto the beach, which serves at the lounge, bar
and restaurant. As one guest put it : "This is the most
chilled chill-out spot I have ever found". We
have books and games to entertain our guests who want
to take a break from the beach and sun.
we are a little place far away from supermarkets we use
a lot of fresh products provided by people within the
community. Our menus are small but good and change daily
for every meal. Favourites amongst our guests are the
grilled fillet of fish with a passion fruit sauce, chicken
kebabs with a chilli garlic dressing. We don't neglect
vegetarians either and our chef Salum will chat to you
if you have any special needs.
atmosphere at Matemwe is chilled and laid-back but this
does not mean you wait half an hour for a beer - our staff
are friendly and attentive - as another guest put it :
"I wish we could take your smiles home with us."
romantics amongst you will be left in peace but we often
find ourselves rearranging the tables at meal times as
more and more new friends sit together over a bottle or
two of good South African red.
some of our guests like to dive, snorkel, and explore
the island we do not offer a fullboard option which makes
them feel tied to the hotel. However, as we are on such
an undeveloped part of the coast we do recommend that
you book for half-board as there are not that many dinner
