South Beach

With 11 acres fronting South Beach, Winnetu offers guests one-of-a-kind access to one of the island’s best beaches. Grab a Winnetu picnic basket, a complimentary beach chair, and spend a day by the ocean

Before Winnetu (approx. 150 years ago), the Mattakeset Lodge was the place to spend the summer months in Katama. The hotel was famous for its clambakes, dances, and ocean breezes.

They met at Winnetu, and now they’re married! You might have met Chip in the lobby, or driving a Winnetu shuttle last season while Andra is holding down the fort at the General Store.
