We stayed for 4 nights in January 2017 and had a perfect end to our trip to Kenya. We stayed in "Bolt" which has access to a plunge pool which nobody else used the whole time we were there - nice to have a private area to relax and we were kept company by monkeys (including colobus) and all sorts...

We have stayed in Kenyaways as a couple for a week. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a nice spot for kitesurfing. We had good wind for 5 days out of 7. It would have been nicer if they could provide tropical fruit other than breakfast. We had to buy from sellers on the beach which you should...

Quite simply the best - I keep going back again again and again... The staff, the room, the location, the food and excellent weather - you cannot wish for more. Flights from JKIA to Ukunda make the trip stress free.

Beginning with room, property itself, location and staff - everything was excellent. Maybe only tip - on the photos it looks a little bit bigger than it actually is ;-) Also, beware that it's focused mainly on kite-surfing so you might feel strange if you are the only one not doing it, but I would still come if only for...

Thanks for your lovely review. yes, Certain times of year are very kitesurfing orientated which is because of the wind seasons. The beach is totally quiet when there is no wind. Nevertheless we are happy you enjoyed the super relaxed atmosphere.

Thank you very much for your positive review and good advise. We are sorry the restaurant manager was grumpy - not very Christmas spirited! Usually he is very charming and helpful maybe the tensions was high because it was very busy! It was very nice to meet your family and friends and hope you have a wonderful 2017.

Nice hotel. Tribal room is amazing. Great breakfast and room cleaned every day. Didn´t like, a lot of people outside the hotel taking the beds in the beach. Due to the restaurante and the kite school being independent from the hotel, lot os people took the place and the beds. It´s unaceptable that people from outside the hotel, not ever...

Hi - Many thanks for your positive review and helpful comments. The security team also complained of outsiders using the facilities and not cooperating. Something we are strongly working on. You are absolutely right. Thank you.
