I stayed in Matemwe Bandas with my Friend. The hotel is in a village which disappointed us at first but when we reached the hotel, we forgot about it immediately, but also found out that the people are nice to tourists.
The place was fantastic and the owners are really helpful and nice people. They recently owned the place and I wish good luck to them.
Anyway, I believe the place is for couples. It is nice and quite and far away from many things. But too far that We kind of got bored a little bit after sometime. I would be very happy if I came there with my wife but with a friend, no:)
We had to leave the place earlier than we planned and the owners let us leave without paying the day which we did not stay (we had a good personal reason). I must thank them for their kindness.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE HOTEL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Matemwe Bandas is as faithful to its natural surroundings and to the highest levels of luxury as we are to millennia old traditions of local master craftsmanship. We are also a fair trade business that is substantially locally owned, while every member of our team (including our four young apprentices) hails from the village of Matemwe around our property.With private direct access from your verandah, Matemwe’s breathtaking beach is only a step away. You can walk along its majestic palmed-lined breadth on dazzlingly white, super fine sand basking in the brilliant tropical sunshine for miles in both directions, only occasionally coming across other people. Nestling on the beach's edge in rustic exclusivity, our luxury coco wood and palm thatch bungalows share an elegant 11m x 5m swimming fresh water pool and sandy, decked and canopy-covered communal areas. We offer butler service and a la carte local & international fusion cuisine. We also provide high speed Wi-Fi Internet access, laundry service and mineral water in the bandas for free to all residents. ... more less
