UtupoaUpepo, our new beach tower, is designed as a song of praise for the local ngalawa sailing culture. You sleep on its top floor, cradled from and by a sea breeze, as close to Matemwe's dazzling beach high water mark as you could ever hope to be.

The space
UtupoaUpepo gives you three floors of a romantic tower situated as close to the sea as possible and all the space is yours alone.

We first came to Zanzibar while we were expatriates in the Middle East. It was 1992, before electricity, tarmac or cell phone networks. We fell in love with Matemwe and proceeded with the very long process to secure some land, and eventually build a holiday home. When we retired in 2012, instead of going back to Kenya, we decided to make this our main home, but soon realized it was too big and far too precious to keep to ourselves. I’ve since made it into a home that I like to share with others. It makes me happy to welcome guests to experience the fantastic beach, food, hospitality and weather that Zanzibar has to offer. Karibuni Utupoa!
