Our handpicked luxury lodges, villas and resorts on the North East Coast of Zanzibar…
The North East Coast of Zanzibar is centred around the traditional little fishing village of Matemwe.
Matemwe is renowned for it’s picture-perfect, palm-fringed beaches… that extend for miles. So if you love taking long beach walks, this is the place for you! As with the East Coast of Zanzibar, the beaches here are very tidal, which can make swimming difficult at low tide (although this is the perfect time to walk out through the lagoon and explore the reef that lies 500m offshore).
The coastline around Matemwe is dotted with wonderful places to stay, with several fantastic Private Beach Villas and some excellent Lodges and Boutique Hotels.
The Mnemba Atoll lies off the coast of Matemwe, and is world-renowned for it’s diving and snorkelling opportunities.
And if you’d like to experience the epitome of Barefoot Luxury, then look no further than the fabulous Mnemba Island Lodge.
Situated on a glorious secluded beach opposite the famous Mnemba Island, Zi Villa is like a ‘home away from home’… with the best diving in East Africa on your doorstep!
On a quiet fisherman’s beach in Matemwe, Zi Zanzibar offers 3 Sea View Cottages (all with their own plunge pools) and 3 Garden Cottages.
