Matlai is a family-owned boutique getaway on Michamvi Peninsula along Zanzibar’s southeastern coast. Anchored in intimate tropical gardens, enjoy spectacular views of turquoise waters from your thatched Asili House on the beach. Stay at the finely appointed four-bedroom accommodation spread across two floors, served by your personal butler. Elegantly decorated, expect sea-facing terraces with loungers and dining tables and modern comforts. In your free time, head to the wellness hut and enjoy relaxing massages. Later, hang out at the unique beachside pool featuring a swim-up bar, or laze about on hammocks and swinging daybeds with a book. Sip on heady cocktails at the shack-style Matlai Bar under the sunset glow. Mingle with fellow guests by the bonfire while traditional Zanzibari dance and live music fill the air at night. Savoring fresh seafood favorites, dining under the stars to a background of crashing waves!
