                This is definitely a place to visit if you are heading to Zanzibar - the service was impeccable and the rooms were large, clean and nicely furnished (we also had the beach on our door step - you can't beat waking up to waves lapping up the beach). They had thought of all the small details that make a holiday special and the staff were all so helpful and exceptionally welcoming. We actually moved hotel for the last 2 days to stay with friends, the second hotel was larger (a well known brand) and quite a lot more expensive and I can 100% say I wish we had stayed at Matlai!

                The Boutique Hotel Matlai was simply incredible. The management were truly wonderful people who made the place feel like home. The staff were exceptional, the facilities were out-of-this-world and my stay there was a dream. The location is magical, the rooms are glorious, the pool is beautiful and the whole site is amazing. I must add that due to a system error I booked this hotel at a drastically reduced price but the owners were so wonderfully kind in honouring the booking and not limiting the service I received. Truly, they are the best kind of people to run a hotel and I can guarantee with absolute certainty that they will make your stay a magical and memorable one.

                Room, Food, Service

                Matlai is clearly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The premise and the building with only 4 rooms are wonderful, build with such love to the detail. The Service is great, staff is very friendly. The Food is amazing and always prepared fresh. The room is very nice and spacious, the bathroom as well and beautifully decorated with an outdoor feeling and even a bath tub! The beach is nice but maybe not the best, however the beautiful pool is a great alternative. The hotel performs clearly above expectations and I can only recommend it!

                Dieses Boutique Hotel ist eingebettet in eine wunderschöne Gartenanlage mit Privatstrand, und erfüllt alle Kriterien auf höchstem Niveau. Außerdem bietet es ein herausragendes Hotel- und Restaurantkonzept. Wir haben Halbpension gebucht. Das Frühstück wird serviert (kein Buffet), man kann bestellen was man möchte und es kann überall eingenommen werden wo man will. Ebenso das Abendessen, wir durften von der gesamten Speisekarte unser Menü selbst zusammenstellen und überall einnehmen wo wir wollten. Das gesamte Personal ist unwahrscheinlich freundlich und leistet ein Service der Extraklasse. Hier fehlt es an nichts und trotzdem wurden auch unsere Bedürfnisse nach Ruhe und Entspannung bestens erfüllt. Liebe Inge und lieber Tim, nochmals vielen Dank für diesen unvergesslichen Urlaub.
