Stayed at the Swahili beach Resort for 4 days before going to the Mara on a Safari. Absolutely amazing, with the friendliest staff ever.

We would highly recommend it to everyone.

Special thanks to Arafa (bar woman who looked after us every night with a big smile all the time, you definitely need a promotion), Michael, Juma, Phoebe, Richard from the beach bar. You guys made us had the best time we could ever dreamed.

We will be back one day, Asante sana!

Amy & Diego.

Ps. We booked our holidays with a Escape Worldwide in the UK. Although the thought times in Kenia at the moment, they made our holiday hassle free! Thank you.

Room Tip: A visit to the Ali Babas restaurant in a cave is a must!!

The place has a truly refreshing rustic feel to it making it very airy and serene. The terraced infinity pools are just breathtaking. Views of the clear blue water from the rooms doesn't get better. I really enjoyed spending my anniversary with the resort. Special Thanks to Julias and Michel for having arranged a brilliant stay for me and my friends. We got upgraded to an executive suite which is just overlooking the beach. The view was just spectacular. The beach bar is very relaxing and service is very prompt. The place is just walking distance from Nakumatt (supermart) and a 3 minute cab ride to 40 thieves

Would definitely love to visit again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the ocean are limited. We stayed in 125-127. The views are just too good

Felt like an Arabian princess when I walked in here. Great views, great hospitality, phenomenal inter-locking pools and some wonderful relaxation areas.

There just seems to be few entertainment options but I guess if you here to relax, thats exactly what you get!

We had an excellent vacation in this very superb hotel..we got a free upgrade to the superior deluxe rooms facing the sea,no words can even describe the whole experience.. Breathtaking or should I say paradise, wow!The interiors are Zanzibar style, nicely decorated with attention to detail. The scenery is very serene, a lot of Palm trees and pretty flowers that give you the coastal feeling.Would definitely return for a much longer stay.

The highs-
-The many swimming pools that cascade downwards towards the beach area make up a million times for the beach that is missing because of the coral reef.Nice chill out area.
-The mattress was extremely comfortable, the curtains dark and the bed is very spacious.
-The staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant,a very special thank you to Julius for the personal touch and interest in us.You made our stay very special....
-The bar in the pool area with bar seats mmmmhh very nice.

The lows-
-No wifi connection in the rooms,only in the lobby and pool area.
-The food variety is a bit down, creativity and variety needed here a lot.
-The entertainment during dinner is also dull, perhaps different theme nights can be organized

Fabulous hotel. Staff go the extra mile to accommodate your needs and make you feel special. Rooms are spacious and well apportioned. Will definitely come back. Worth every cent. Only problem was bad wi-fi connection in rooms. Hope its been fixed now.
