We spent 6 relaxing nights at Almanara in a private villa. When we arrived we wondered what we would do for 6 days to fill in our time but it was amazing that within 24 hours we had really kicked back and found it very easy to do nothing. The villa is huge with three ensuite bedrooms - but having...

We stayed at the Luxury Suite at the Almanara for the weekend and it was an excellent choice. The Suite was very spacious and the ensuite bathroom was equipped with a jacuzzi. The service was fantastic as we had a butler and a chef at our service during our stay. The hotel is well furnished and very clean. Swimming pool...

When we arrived at our villa, we couldn't believe it was all for us, it was huge. We had our own chef, maid and chauffeur - all staff were exceptional. Food was out of this world. Pool lovely and right on the beach. We had a camel ride. It was quite windy on the beach but the sand was white,...

These beautiful villas must be some of the best on the Kenyan coast, set in a stunning location. The staff in the gated compound are all really friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is so relaxed. The food at Sails restaurant is delicious - I recommend the Zanzibar Snapper followed by Chocolate Mousse, but you could pick anything off the...

The place... Amazing. The service... Unbelievable and extraordinary good. The food... Best ever tasted. Thanks everyone for giving as such a wonderful time. This is a kind of place that you arrive and don't want to leave anymore. We have been spoiled in so many ways that will be difficult to go back to normal. Thanks Angie, Dorcas, Janet, Joseph,...

Gemma and Leo we're excellent hosts. We were picked up from Ukunda airstrip and taken straight to our villa (check-in is done on your behalf). Our villa came with 3 support staff (housekeeper, chef & waitress) who do everything to make you stay as comfortable as possible. All meals were prepared at the house and served as per our schedule....
