We stayed there in August 2013 for 10 days in the comfort class bungalows. We were on half board. We arrived at 4am due to our flight schedule. On arrival, they offered us some juice and a hot towel then proceeded to check us in quickly. The room was newly renovated. It was situated in the bungalows adjacent to the... More

Having recently visited the SEVERIN SEA LODGE I would say it easily earns the rating of the second best hotel along the BAMBURI beach, debatably I would say it was No 1 as I consider White Sands to be too big and impersonal. The DOW al acarte restaurant at the SEVERIN Hotel is outstanding offering a wide menu choice and... More

We can highly recommend the Severin Sea Lodge following our recent stay. The room was excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotels position on Bamburi Beach is stunning. Long walks can be taken in either direction and the beach boys are very well behaved compared to some we have encountered at other hotels. Its the only... More

We got a last-minute deal staying at this hotel and were not at all disappointed given the price we had paid. Overall it is a lovely place set in one of the most touristy areas north of Mombasa - the transfer from the airport takes about 45 minutes depending upon the traffic. Come here to chill out on a package... More

This hotel is perfect if you're looking to rest and relax. The service is amazing as they are always concerned about your welfare and how they could make your stay better. If you're looking to party and make it on time for breakfast they offer wake up calls and they can bring the breakfast to your room. What I loved... More

Very friendly staff and a beautiful lodge. The rooms are very clean. When we arrived we got a room with very hard matresses. When we asked if all the rooms had the same beds, we got another one immediately and the matresses were much nicer. Dinner is great, especially the a la carte ones. The breakfast is very nice with...

We just came back and we had a great time here. Standard room was a bit older, so we upgrated to a comfort room. The comfort room also has tea/coffee maker,a little fridge and a large tv-screen. The best thing of the tv: SD-card input, so we could have a good look at the pictures of our safari trip. The... More

This is a lovely hotel next to the beach, It has two pools, a gym and good bathing areas on the grounds. The rooms are fantastic, built in a cabin style with a balcony so that you are not next to your neighbours. Monkies live in the grounds. It is next to a beautiful beach and the sea is warm.... More
