Jafferji Beach Retreat is a boutique hotel situated in Matemwe, a dreamy stretch of coastline in north-eastern Zanzibar. Known for powder-white sand, swaying palm trees and gin-clear Indian Ocean as far as the eye can see, Matemwe is loved by travellers for its seemingly never-ending beaches.
This private beach retreat in Zanzibar is set on Matemwe's white sand and offers magnificent views of Mnemba Island, a fantastic scuba diving and snorkelling spot. Indian and Arab influences blend seamlessly with African architecture throughout Jafferji, accentuating the cultural heritage of Zanzibar, also known as the 'Spice Island'. Fourteen luxurious suites are spread out along a palm-fringed beach, each beautifully decorated with Swahili beds, Moroccan lights and a personal collection of antiques.
Spend your days poolside lazing in a day bed or on the private beach, sipping on cool refreshments while local fishing boats glide by. For the more adventurous, Jafferji offers boat excursions to the magical Mnemba Island for snorkelling and scuba diving in a breathtaking marine ecosystem famous for green turtles, dolphins, whale sharks and humpback whales.
Couples and honeymooners will love this boutique hotel in Zanzibar's romantic dhow (traditional sailboat) cruise while soaking in a gorgeous African sunset. A private butler is on board to serve you canapes, cool refreshments and sparkling wine, while a traditional Taarab musician or ngoma drummers set the mood.
Jafferji is the ideal getaway for families, couples or solo travellers looking for a private beach retreat in Zanzibar to cap their African safari vacation.
