From a tropical garden oasis to a really beautiful beach, tasteful art in a dedicated gallery, overspilled among the trees, palms and ponds, silver life size elephants, tin foiled crocodiles and plenty of busty nude carvings, all within the lush tropical grounds, this hotel is a bit of treasure! Fronted by the Indian Ocean and the gorgeous Silversands Beach, next...

The property was each to find using Google maps. When we got there, we emptied our 3 cases from the car, took 2 to the reception and that is when the Askari came to help with the 3rd. This would be OK for the west, but it is uncommon to carry your own cases in Kenya. The options for payment...

A real retreat away from the crowd. Just relax and so not be in a hurry! Great food especially seafood. The pools are great and Armando is there so all will go well! If you have kids, simply ask Armando to paint with them !!

Second best beach party in malindi that we went to. Good mix of music and great location. Well attended . Good range of drinks at average prices. Most people arrive after midnight. Interesting design of gardens with art element thrown in.

All rooms facing antique garden with animal sculptures with a long walkway to the pool and with a relaxing open lounge facing the beach it is a place where you need more than 4 days to enjoy your stay.

White Elephant has a great location and we drove form Nairobi so it was easy to find on the maps. We had rented out their 3 bedroom apartment for 4 nights. The reception and check-in process was quick and hassle free. The apartment was on the 1st floor but the entrance was outside the main hotel complex - more through...

Now if you are a fun of art, i think Italian themed, then you are in the right place. the place has a lot of unmaintained art maybe because i was there off season and the staff wanted cash payment as opposed to swiping my visa card(i did not understand why) I had to catch a cab to get to...
