Matemwe Retreat

What I loved about this property:
The uniquely designed villas are the highlight in this small resort. I also loved their complimentary mini-bar with lots of drinks, the beautiful surroundings and food was better than expected.

What else to note:
The staff are all locals, except the Zimbabwian manager, Sandie. Martin, the personal butler did a great job and there isn’t much to complain about at Matemwe. Highly recommended and could easily be a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World or Design Hotels, but with only 4 rooms, it probably won’t be valuable for them with the high annual fee.

Arrival experience:
Warm welcome at the airport and greeted by a smile when the car arrived at the resort. A nice welcome drink was offered before being escorted to the villas.
