I really can't describe what a wonderful stay we had at Tijara House. It was my parents first visit to the African continent (I've been living in Kenya for about a year) and they were overwhelmed by the peacefulness, natural beauty and wonderful weather. Ian and his staff were courteous, helpful and kind and ensured every day was blissful. The...

I have not added any photos, because if you look here in trip advisor, the photos don't lie. It's better than it looks. This a 4 villa boutique hotel on large manicured grounds overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean. Food is delicious and home cooked by an on site chef. You can ask for what you want, it will be delivered....

What a stunning place to head to after eight days moving around Lake Bogoria and then on safari in the Mara. It is a little piece of paradise and has an exclusive feel with only four cottages set in beautiful grounds and direct access to its beach. We were picked up from Diani Beach airstrip (coming from Wilson airport, sit...

After a short flight with no problem, you leave the road forgetting about your hectic life, traffic and worries to turn into the bush where only a few native look at you driving through and at the last turn, coming from nowhere, you have the ocean at your feet. Only the noise from the sea comes to bother you. The...

We have just had 2 perfect weeks at Tijara Beach Hotel. A beautiful oasis just outside Mombasa. If in need of tranquility this is the perfect sanctuary. We sat by the pool, snorkelled in the lagoon, visited the caves and Shimba Hills Nature Reserve. The food is locally sourced and delicious - our mornings will not be the same without...

Just back from a week’s stay at Tijara Beach. We had a wonderful stay and we’d go back again. It was a wonderful, relaxing time. This resort I’m giving an international 4, but an African 5. If you are looking for a place to “unplug” and completely relax for a vacation, this is a soft you want to visit. This...

Thank you very much for your wonderful detailed review! We enjoyed hosting you and your husband here and we are glad that you loved your stay. You certainly caught "Tijaratis" as many of our repeat guests call it - when one ends up doing very little while enjoying the views and the breeze! Our tides are different based on the...

Faced with a rather dark and cold Christmas my wife and I wanted sunlight and warmth so we opted to head to Kenya after finding this resort on Trip Advisor. What we found was excellent privacy and relaxation that allowed us to be a couple, catch up on books and take in the views with the occasional jaunt into Mombasa...

Tijara Beach is a good place for a get away vacation. Getting there from the Airport takes a little while, and it is far from most of the tourist attractions in Mombasa. But if you are looking for a quiet and serene place, this is perfect!

Thank you very much for your comment and we are happy that you chose staying with us. Tijara is indeed a serene, tranquil and very private place for people who enjoy being away from it all for a few days.

After searching for a long time for quiet getaway in Mombasa we finally found Tijara Beach online and I am so happy we did. What a total gem. The property only has 4 houses, for us this was really important as we did not want to stay in a big hotel. The houses are so beautiful, amazingly decorated and the...
