Hi! There are two connecting properties -- the Matemwe Retreat (private villas) and the Matemwe Lodge. If you're in the former, you have your own private plunge pool on your second floor roof deck. It's spectacular. If you're in the Lodge, you have access to two communal pools. One is a small infinity pool that is higher than the other one -- but it's not on a rooftop per se. If you're in the Retreat, in addition to your private plunge pool, you can access the two communal pools.
