Set right on the northern most point of Matemwe, Kasha Boutique Hotel has brought something slightly different to the beach hotels on the island. First of all, being located where it is has allowed them much more room than many of the other new properties. This has allowed Kasha to space the bungalows out, and also make them all very roomy inside, with a full lounge both inside and out, plunge pools and total privacy. The only down side to this is that the beach is ok at the best of times.


Situated right on the very northern most point of Matemwe, Kasha Boutique Hotel is blessed and cursed. It really doesn't have the greatest beach as it sits right on a 12foot coral ledge. At high tide there is nothing, at low tide there is plenty of sand that runs right out to the coast. At mid-tide there is something and this is the time to walk the 200 yards or so.


The rooms at Kasha really are the best feature of the hotel with a sitting area, good sized bed, outside lounge area, outside sun beds and an outside plunge pool…all for this reasonable price! it is no wonder that many couples simply stay in their rooms the entire time they are here.


With two lines of rooms, the sea front and sea facing, the rooms are pretty well spaced and have good views to the sea. A short walk from most of these is the good pool area that has a good sized pool, recliners and bar/restaurant.

Up from the bungalows, separated by a garden of sorts, is the main area which contains the restaurant, the “Baraza” bar and the entrance. To us it is a bit of a strange area as, being so far from the beach front, it is not really used during the day, but it kind of makes sense in the evening, as a way of getting people together. On the whole not a bad layout, but could feel a little disjointed.


Dvd and tv in all rooms so you can borrow DVDs if you like.

Great rooms, nice and quiet location

No beach, layout a bit strange
