Trip Advisor reviews for Che Che Vule Private Villa



che che vule private villa

Located on the magnificent Matemwe beach and overlooking an azure blue ocean, Che Che Vule Villa provides privacy, private butlers, a wide range of activities and personalised guest service.

The two acclaimed Swahili chefs are fluent in authentic Swahili and fusion dishes - and most importantly they adapt the menu to your preferred palate using only the freshest Island ingredients.

Che Che Vule Villa was built back in the 1990’s as a private house. During 2007 & 2008 the property was expanded and upgraded and since then it has welcomed visitors from all over the world who seek an exclusive, stylish retreat with all the comforts of a resort - yet with an emphasis on personal service.

The small staff are all from nearby Matemwe village and include 2 private chefs, butlers, housekeepers, gardeners and security guards. Their aim is to ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable time at Che Che Vule!


Che Che Vule Villa is designed to ensure guests maximum space in the form of high woven Makuti ceilings and ample floor space. Large windows and balconies offer expansive views over the tropical garden, swimming pool and ocean.

The facilities at Che Che Vule include:

  • Four spacious bedrooms; two with en-suite bathrooms and private balconies
  • Spacious living room
  • Private swimming pool

Che Che Vule’s private chefs, Eddy and Juma, lovingly prepare some of the best food that Zanzibar has to offer - tropical fruits and fresh vegetables, an array of delicious seafood from the Indian Ocean, homemade goodies and more... all creatively prepared using Zanzibar’s famous herbs and spices.

Che Che Vule's food policy is to keep the menu small and use only the freshest ingredients. Lobsters, crabs or delicious local shells can be organized on request, at a minimal additional cost.

Throughout your stay, Haji, one of your private butlers will always be happy to serve your drinks. He is revered for his fresh tropical fruit concoctions and is known as the 'Milkshake Master'.


Che Che Vule is only a 20 minute boat ride from Mnemba Island. Its surrounding atoll is world famous for its great dive sites and snorkelling.

On a good day, guests can spot migrating humpback whales during July - September and whale sharks from November - January. Sea turtles - mostly green turtles and hawkbacks - are around all year, as are playful dolphins that are known for putting on a good show.

Matemwe beach, like all beaches around Zanzibar, is tidal and at full moon the difference between low and high can reach up to 4 metres. During low tide one can walk all the way to the reef and it is especially interesting at night time. You can see lion fish, colourful snails, baby octopus and eels, shrimp and many more sea creatures.

DIVING with ONE OCEAN “The Zanzibar Dive Center”
Guests are picked up on the beach in front of the villa by ONE OCEAN, a professional PADI dive company. There are several excellent dive spots around the Mnemba atoll, and for those that have never been diving before there are PADI dive courses offered.

Mnemba atoll is renowned for its picture-perfect underwater scenery. Local captains from Matemwe village will take you to Mnemba in a traditional Zanzibari dhow equipped with outboard engines, life jackets and a sun roof. Che Che Vule's cook will provide a lunch box if you plan to stay out for a full day!

Matemwe village is famous for its big fleet of Ngalawas (dug outs with an outrigger and a sail) used by the local fishermen. Sailing in one of these boats is a unique experience and Che Che Vule can happily arrange a trip for you.

If you wish to go fishing for the big ones (like sail fish, dorado, king fish, marlin and tuna) Che Che Vule can arrange a half hour transfer to Nungwi, where you can fish in the Pemba channel on a fully equipped professional deep sea fishing boat.

Kite boarding is one of the most exciting water sports around, and Zanzibar offers perfect conditions: shallow water, long beaches, good equipment and friendly experienced instructors.

Enjoy a half day excursion to the Aquarium especially for families with kids. It's a natural sea water pool with plenty of sea turtles and fish in all sizes. Take a mask and flippers with you and enjoy close contact with these gentle giants (a green turtle can grow over 100 Kg) which you can also feed with sea weeds.

weddings and honeymoons

ROMANTIC, PRIVATE. AND INTIMATE… Imagine a dream house hidden within a tropical garden. Imagine walking down the beach, barefoot, surrounded by arches of Bougainvillea... The turquoise water of the Indian Ocean in front of you... and there... impatiently waiting under a palm leaves chapel is your Groom! A few guests... maybe none... enjoy the melody of a violin and some drums…

The possibilities are endless: a Romantic sunset Dhow cruise, a Brunch, Lunch or Dinner Set-up on the Beach or the Deck Terrace overlooking the ocean or by the pool... Che Che Vule would be happy to arrange your dream wedding!
