Wish I had found this place before! We were booked in a resort on Diani beach and could only stick it for 3 nights so I discovered Kinondo Kwetu and promptly booked.
It was simply stunning... beautiful rooms, amazing gardens and fantastic pools.
The place had a lovely 'vibe' to it and the hosts were charming and helpful.
The food was exceptional... great variety, fresh and very tasty.
Beautiful white sand beach which was deserted and had no beach boys!!!! Perfect!
Went for an amazing gallop on the beach...... you need to be a good rider though, these horses are strong.... my mount 'Casper' was an ex polo horse and he went 'like the wind', it was a case of letting him go and rein him in when he tires..whch was after a 2 mile gallop!
Probably the most Exhilarating ride I have ever had.. not for the faint hearted!
Also played Tennis and went Kayaking. The massage I had was thorough and calming, good value too.
The weather was perfect, and there were plenty of spots to lazily spend the day.
So sorry to leave... one of the nicest places I have stayed and hope to return to soon.
Thanks to Natalie and Matthieus for an amazing few nights, wish it was more!
