Each of the 12 beach-chic chalets scattered through the lush gardens has a private sea-facing veranda. Here the tides govern the rhythm of the tranquil days. The pristine Mnemba Atoll lies just off the coast, and it is in these tropical waters that you will find the best snorkelling and diving and superb fishing.

Ellie says, "I was the manager at Matemwe many eons ago - in fact I saw in the millenium there so it holds a special place in my heart. It is a really unique and secluded spot and offers some other private accomodation options that are great for a large family group or friends trip. The sunrise over the glass lake of the Indian Ocean here is etched in my heart "
