Boutique Hotel Matlai is a charming boutique hotel on Zanzibar’s South East Coast consisting of just 4 rooms in a two-storey villa on a beautiful beach.

The hotel can be booked as individual rooms or as the whole house, which can accommodate up to 8 people.

Accommodation at Zanzibar’s Boutique Hotel Matlai consists of a large house, situated directly on the beach.

Asili House has 2 rooms downstairs and two on the upper storey. Each room is individually designed, each with a sea view with terraces and sun loungers.

Boutique Hotel Matlai will really suit those looking for an intimate beach hotel in Zanzibar and is ideal for a larger family or group of friends if the whole house is booked.

A dramatic infinity pool and al-fresco lounge are nice features of Boutique Hotel Matlai.

Rates at Zanzibar’s Boutique Hotel Matlai are on a Full Board basis, making the hotel excellent value for money. Menu’s are flexible and can be discussed with the chef.

What’s so Special?

Boutique Hotel Matlai is located on the 10 km long Michamvi peninsula, known for its stunning turquoise blue ocean, barrier reef and palm trees.

The lovely white sand beach is very quiet here and the sea usually shimmers in beautiful colours.

The open-air ‘cinema’ can be booked privately for a superb setting to enjoy a free movie.

Bear in Mind

This side of Zanzibar is very tidal, so at low tide the sea goes quite a long way out. At low tide however a sugar white sand bank appears in front of the hotel, fantastic for some of the best beach based snorkelling in Zanzibar.

The beach is mostly fully white sand, but occasionally a bit rocky, depending on the direction of the monsoon wind, that moves the sand around the island.

Boutique Hotel Matlai is a little bit isolated with no restaurants within walking distance. There is a small village adjacent to the hotel but without any real facilities for visitors.
