A good hotel with an excellent team of people Moses and Edward total stars. The food is world class and the services outstanding at every level. The rooms are a tad basic for this level and the bathrooms although large need an update. Also their is no airconditionong in the bathrooms so they turn into saunas very quickly. The grounds...

We have just spent another amazing two weeks in this idyllic hotel. We are just drawn back time and time again. To some this may seem boring - but why look elsewhere and risk disappointment having found this dream in Malindi. The hotel is immaculate, and nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are a credit, and will...

There is a very relaxed atmosphere and nothing was too much trouble.

I'm one of demanding clients, but this time I have something very nice to tell you :) It was the first time in Kenya and what is more important – it was the first holidays with NO disappointments.

The hotel is about 2.5hrs drive from Mombasa Airport. The rooms are very spacious. The double bed is quite big and a mosquito net is provided. The minibar (with soft drinks) is refilled twice a day. Food is excellent. For lunch you choose from the menu (soup, pasta, main course) plus salad and dessert buffet. For dinner it is either...

We had one night here in transit, booked by internet. The room was beautiful, delicately arranged bouganvillea flowers everywehere including the loo! Our "junior suite" was a suite indeed, balcony/lounger; big room, sitting area,. bathroom, jacuzzi. The only disappointment was the volume of water in the shower - perhaps due to the end of the dry season. All main drinks...
