This restaurant is great for seafood, the service, the views, the music, the ambience is authentic. The swahili welcoming culture is seen as you interact with the staff . Be sure to ask for recommendations of what's good.

The Tamarind has the distinction of having an on-site casino for those who fancy a gamble. The facilities are are basic, but is adequate for whiling away the time. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the bars and restaurants on site are great. A fishing charter is available that departs from the hotel jetty.

Top service, well maintained rooms, spacious and comfortable. Nice pool and restaurant with good room service. Seafood a must! Boats can dock/ pickup from here. Massages also available but a little on the pricey side.
