House Rules

As we like to say, 'utupoa' means 'humanity is great.' We like to live up to this in terms of how we treat the beach, each other, and our relationship with the local village.

Our location dictates that we look after the environment. Water is a precious resource and electricity is still very much a privilege, not a right here. We ask that our guests respect and understand this paradise we are lucky to spend time in, and to help us protect it.

Tim was a pilot in the Middle East when we first came to Zanzibar on a flight he was operating. It was 1992, before electricity, tarmac or cell phone networks. We fell in love with Matemwe and have made it our home. It is a home that we like sharing, and are very happy to welcome…
