What we like about this property

Boutique Hotel Matlai is located in Michamwi, on the south east coast of the beautiful island of Zanzibar, and offers its guests a piece of paradise in luxury accommodation overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean.

Made up of two houses, a 4-bedroom villa and a 2-bedroom villa, it can be booked on a per-room or whole-house basis, with half or full board. Surrounded by tropical gardens and directly adjacent to the beach, Hotel Matlai is perfect for families or a group of friends.

Description

The hotel consists of two large villas that sit directly on the beach, and is surrounded by a large tropical garden with various dining areas and sun decks. There is a massage hut on the beach, as well as an open-air cinema and a separate recreation area for volleyball, boules and ladder golf.

Asili House has four beautifully furnished bedrooms named after the elements; Moto meaning fire, Hewa meaning air, Dunia meaning earth and Maji meaning water in Kiswahili. All rooms feature an en-suite bathroom with a bath, plus private verandahs or balconies.

A tropical garden surrounds the house and merges into the spacious lounge and dining area where guests can enjoy meals. The pool, with its palm-tree island, invites guests to relax and offers both sea and beach views. There are al-fresco bathrooms with bath and rain showers.

Villa Kidosho has two sea-view suites, and a lounge with dining and sitting areas, as well as huge bathrooms with shower, bath tubs and separate toilets. There are large private terraces with sun beds, swinging beds and hammocks. The house has its own large infinity pool with Jacuzzi jets, leading out to the ocean from the terrace.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Water, soft drinks, tea and coffee is provided, and a TV and DVD player is available on request. The in-house chef will spoil guests with traditional Kiswahili cuisine, with freshly caught seafood or with request meals at a time that suits them. Guests will also have a personal butler at their disposal. 

AROUND

Opposite to the hotel, guests will find an offshore sand bar with white sand and a magnificent snorkelling area to reach on foot at low tide. A variety of activities for all age groups can be enjoyed, from volleyball, boule and beach ball or cross golf. Guests can also visit the open-air-cinema or enjoy a book at the library’s selection of paperback books in German and English. Various tours and attractions can be visited and an island tour can also be arranged. 

The hotel is located on the edge of an authentic Swahili fishing village, with a variety of informal restaurants within easy walking distance.
