This was the last stop for us on our trip to Kenya, and it was a relaxing way to end our safari. Getting to the lodge is a bit of a hike, but it is well worth it once you are there. The property is difficult to describe, but beautiful. The views of both the Indian ocean and the delta is unique and spectacular. Upon arrival we were greeted by the managers of the property, David and Lara. They are wonderful, and made us feel very welcomed. The room is completely covered, but has no walls, so you are completely exposed to the fresh air. It was lovely to fall asleep to the crashing waves and wind. The king size bed sleeps well, and also has netting. The shower was a little rough when it was windy, but nice and warm. The beach is secluded allowing you privacy. Sand-yachting is a must do! Each meal was freshly prepared and tasted wonderful. Overall, the Delta Dunes is a must if relaxation and peace is what you seek.
