Why HKM Ltd Co chose Matemwe

I landed on the island long time before the tourism industry ....and that's why I was able to go for the absolute best spot on the beach of Matemwe ...the golden mile of Zanzibar ....

What makes this villa unique

No mass toursim in Matemwe , a very fine little village with its own fish market , unspoiled immaculate white sandy beach ...friendly people ...no big hotels around ...no aqua gym ... Zanzibar as it was 15 years ago ...just incredible ...

Complete luxury

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is completely accurate. It is a perfect villa for a family (or families). Four very good sized double bedrooms (two of them are en suite and two share a bathroom). The villa is very well maintained and is fully staffed. All the staff were great. Patrick provides a great service. As for food, the in house chef is well worth the $15 a day (you can tell them what to buy and pay for the food costs). She will make you whatever you want.

The facilities are great. The villa comes with its own car and boat if you want to travel around. The pool is great and there is a section of private beach before the steps that lead down to the public beach and sea.

Overall, a great experience. I would gladly return!

The most idyllic place!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed in June 2017 and were completely blown away by everything: the villa, the location, the staff.

The beach is beautiful and incredibly quiet, any development so far is very sympathetic so it has an unspoilt charm to it.

The villa is gorgeous, rooms are perfect, and it's so spacious inside and out.

Pamela is a wonderful chef and has the uncanny ability to know exactly what you want before you do. Nondo was friendly and always available for trips out. Khalidja and the housekeeping team were always smiling and really lovely.

I can't recommend this place enough!

Many thanks to Patrick for all of his help and his excellent advice before arrival and during our stay.

Hoping to get back there again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you dear Louise , for the warm words which of course I will transmit to everyone overthere in Zanzibar . It makes me feel very confortable in the amount of work we placed in the skills of the staff and the highly demanding maintenance of the villa so close by the sea and salty winds . Thank you again and wish to see you back . Kindest regards . Patrick

Sea urchins my foot

  • 4 of 5

The whole villa experience was fabulous and has so much more potential, it's churlish to find fault. The chef,maids, gardeners, guards and Nondo are the villas best assets, couple this to an unrivalled location and utopia beckons !

Some furnishings are tired and the pool design is not conducive to swimming or safe access, rubber mating would solve the problem. We made much use of the "speed" boat and 4x4 at our disposal, Nondo being in charge of them both. The only real downer are the sea urchins which abound, making sea swimming impossible.
