This place sits in its own large grounds in green country overlooking the wide and shining Mtwapa Creek, about 30 minutes drive N of Mombasa. It is very luxurious. The rooms are kept very clean and they are high-ceilinged, huge and gorgeous; and there is an adjacent covered-but-open-air terrace looking out towards the swimming pool only a few metres away. There is fast wifi internet. The meals served are both large and delicious, and the management and staff are very helpful and friendly. It is also good value for money! It's some minutes up a side road from Mtwapa town so if you like urban 'beat' and local shops on your doorstep this place may not be for you, but it is the perfect quiet haven for all the rest of us.
