We stayed at Shambani cottages, in the Baobob villa. We found it to be a lovely and spacious accommodation; perfect for a large family. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was especially appreciated. The pool onsite is close by (approximately 500 m) and is very private since it is only shared with the 7 other cottages on site. The many small gardens and open spaces on the grounds makes the place feel very welcoming – it does not feel like a large resort or compound. The staff is friendly and complete daily check-ins to make sure you are having a wonderful vacation and if repairs are needed they are handled promptly. The driver, Salim picked us up at the airport and took us to the grocery store on the first day to get the bulk of our groceries, since we had a hired a cook through the cottages. This option was greatly appreciated because we did not want to take a taxi or rent a car.
Diani beach is a short walk away from the compound and is clean, safe and good for swimming and walking. Overall, we enjoyed our time here immensely, highly recommended.
