The Bandas


Built on stilts and a platform using only the ancient building materials of palm frond and coco wood, our beach bandas afford a truly exceptional luxury experience on the island of Zanzibar.

Our all natural, thatched beach bandas (Kiswahili for bungalow) are exceptionally spacious  with their own veranda uniquely perched right on Matemwe’s stunning beach. In addition to your four-poster double bed, tailored mosquito netting has also been tightly fastened between your free standing makuti walls and thatched roof. The prevailing sea breeze, highly traditional design and platted palm leaf walls yield excellent natural air conditioning.

Beach Bandas


Depending on which banda you choose, your shower could even be a palm or fir tree rising through the floor and out again through the thatched ‘makuti’ roof.The furniture is of exceptionally well finished, locally made coco wood and includes four safari chairs with tables in each banda so that you can chill in considerable style and comfort as you gaze out dreamily on to Matemwe’s turquoise lagoon.
