With the shore beckoning each day only steps from the front door, there is plenty of sunbathing, beachcombing, and picnicking on the beach. A personal butler can also assist with booking various other activities such as snorkeling trips, reef walks, and village visits. For an extra charge, guests can enjoy a scuba-diving adventure, dhow boat trip, visit to nearby Stone Town, or a spice tour. A cultural tour on a working spice plantation illustrates how nutmeg, vanilla, and cardamom are produced. There is also kayaking, kite-surfing, and deep sea fishing available.
With sister property, Matemwe Lodge and its many amenities a short walk away, Matemwe Beach House allows for complete privacy. A personal butler on site attends to all needs, while the chef arrives daily to prepare scrumptious meals. These meals consist of a lot of fresh crab, lobster, and fish from the fishermen who net seafood offshore during high tide. No set menu means that guests decide with the chef what the individual menu will be for the day, typically a fusion of traditional Zanzibari and international flavors. A well-stocked private bar is also available in Matemwe Beach House.
