A Paradise on the Beach!

Posted Nov 15, 2015
This is one of those places that words can never do justice to. You have to visit to experience. The staff are amazing.. From the team onsite at the lodge to the water sports staff, they work around the clock to ensure your stay is pleasant without being overbearing. I am going to return to the hotel for another stay. I have traveled around the world and stayed in a lot of paradise-type hotels and Metemwe lodge is in that league without a doubt. A big thanks to Marco, Arthur and Salum. You guys were awesome hosts.

Perfect Retreat in Zanzibar

Posted Oct 2, 2015
Pros: Location and hotel service were fantastic.
Cons: Stonetown and spice tour was a little expensive, as compared to other 3rd party providers. Otherwise, all the other services, tours, spa were ok.
Location: Diving at Matemwe atoll was fantastic. Stonetown is a 1.25 hour drive. Highly recommend the spice tour.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights after our safari. We picked the Matemwe area due to the proximity to Matemwe atoll for diving and ability for day trips to Stone Town. I highly recommend this lodge. The villas are spacious and offer separate sitting area, separate bath tub and rain shower, outdoor hammock and couch for reading. The lodge also boasts a nice bar, 2 pools, and spa center. The real star was the front of house staff. They went out of their way to make the stay special. For example, they set up a surprise candlelit dinner on the beach our last night. Service in general was exemplary. We were greeted with 2 types of drinks and cool towels upon arrival, and asked frequently how they can make our stay better.

Super Lodges direkt am Strand

Posted Sep 12, 2015
Pros: Zimmer und Service
Cons: Vielleicht kann man die Algenreste am Strand entfernen.
Location: Direkt am Meer. Z.B. schnorcheln. Man kann über das Hotel etliche Ausflüge unternehmen.
Wir haben die Flitterwochen im Hotel verbracht und waren rundum zufrieden.

Relaxing beach resort

Staff & food were terrific. The snorkeling was very good, we got to swim with dolphins. Downside - could not swim in the surf, needed bathing shoes to walk in the water.

Oasis in Zanzibar

Fantastic solo getaway for 1 night. I felt secluded and pampered and relaxed. I went kayaking, swimming, walking on the beach, and generally chilled out. It was perfect.

Der ligger ikke noget i nærheden ud over en fattig landsby. Men det er lige meget for på hotellet har du alt hvad du får brug for. Virkelig lækkert mad, god service, fantastisk udsigt og lækre bungalows. Perfekt afslutning på en bryllupsrejse. En af aftnerne havde de dækket op til os på stranden med levende lys og champagne. Det var så romantisk og helt perfekt. Og det kostede ikke ekstra. De varmeste anbefalinger til Mettemens lodge.

Fantastic Honeymoon^^

올인클루시브여서 편하게 식사와 음료를 먹을 수 있었네요. 매일 매일 달라지는 메뉴도 맘에 들었고 저녁식사 분위기가 참 좋네요. 모든 객실이 오션뷰여서 해먹에서 바다를 보다 잠을 자기도 하고 야외 소파에 앉아서 주스를 마시며 책을 읽기도 더 없이 좋았네요. 아무 생각 없이 쉬다 가기에 최적의 장소가 아닌가 싶어요. 이전에 묵었던 켄다비치의 오성급호텔에 비해시설은 낡은 듯하지만 관리가 상당히 잘 되고 있었고 전통적이고 목가적인 느낌이 참 좋았어요. 객실이 12채 뿐이어서 굉장히 프라이빗했고, 멤바섬 투어는 정말 잊지 못할만큼 좋았어요. 그리고 가장 기억에 남는건 호텔 지배인의 피앙세가 우리를 위해 비치웨딩 촬영을 선물로 해주었어요. 정말 아름다운 풍광 속에서 너무 맘에 드는 사진을 주셔서 감사해요. 친절한 직원과 다른 이웃들과 좋은 시간 보냈어요~!!

Great Getaway place

Posted Nov 26, 2013
The overall stay was great. Although it was little far from stone town, there are lot of activities which can be enjoyed. Support from staff was excellent, as we arrived late, they opened the restaurant hour after the closing time. view from the room was great. sea was warm and easy access to the water from the stay. Just one downside. there were few mosquitos, so better get prepared. Although they provide mosquito repellant and sprays, its just not enough at the night time.

Much too expensive for what is offered. This not a 5 star, though good.
