Surrounded by dazzling white sand and azure blue sea, Matemo offers a heady combination of exclusive sophistication and laid-back Mozambique island style living. Each of the 24 palm-thatched, air-conditioned chalets opens onto the beach and is just a few steps away from the sea.

For stylish Quirimba beach living, you need look no further than Matemo's blend of understated luxury. Each chalet is beautifully appointed, with spacious en-suite bathrooms, outside showers and deck hammocks for lazing in whilst watching passing local Mozambique dhows and the gentle undulations of the sea. Every effort has been made to ensure that the beach chalets blend into the natural Quirimba Island surroundings, with local Mokuti palm roofs offset by glamorous touches such as local white marble, ornate carved doors from Zanzibar and rich furnishings and rugs from Dubai.

Food & Wine:

The spacious guest areas are gently elevated above the sea, with the lively bar, dining area and swimming pool commanding sweeping views over the Indian Ocean.

To ensure ultimate relaxation, a range of simple spa treatments is on offer and can be enjoyed wherever guests please.
