The premises are fine, about 2 minutes from the beach. But booking.com had a wrong information about the location of this place, showing it right on beach. Do not be fooled. The staff, including Tiger (dog), was very friendly though. The beach is beautiful for waking and resting, but not for swimming. During my stay it was either low tide... More

We stayed here with family in December. It is nice and quiet and has a nice pool and garden. The breakfast is good and other meals are ok. The rooms are very basic and the bathroom is cramped. The location is not great, very far from town and not on the beach. You have to walk around 3 minutes through... More

Kinondo Poa is an excellent place for anyone who wants to keep distance from the resort tourism of the Diani beach. It has 4 bungalows only so you can enjoy your privacy at all times. Moreover, the service is truly amazing. Everyone from the manager through security to the waiter and the cook is doing their best to make your... More

We felt very safe during all our stay, so we often took a ride to Diani beach with some locals on the motorbike. A native village... More

Stayed at Kinondo Poa over Easter. Wonderful place, super friendly staff, best seafood ever, very clean pool and service. Well maintained garden, only 2 min walk to the private beach, no beach boys only friendly fisherman and children. We will come back.

I had a wonderful weekend at Kinondo Poa. The service & rooms were wonderful. I also liked the beach...it was not clustered with people or dirt. The food was delicious. The pool was also available to us 24/7 and i had the most wonderful morning swims.
