Gorgeous locations are oft described as heavenly, but this place cannot be oversold. You arrive to what is a modest entrance that only allows you to discover surprisingly what is surely a divine location that only continues to delight and inspire. The website does not do the hotel justice...all the villas have similarly designed interiors in simple but elegant swahili... More

On the complete opposite end of reality, tucked away from the madness of every day life, this surreal gem of paradise lets you explore your inner child in you, to the romantic in you, to the explorer in you and can even awaken the writer/ artist/ musician in you if you give it the chance (and if you dont have...

Msambweni villas the last is located directly on the beach, approximately half an hour drive south of the Diani. The last 5 miles are a rough track of the main road. The resort features a large reception area with ample for relaxation, and several separated houses. It was low season, and we had our own house was private “infinity” swimming... More

The whole of our five day stay was excellent. The staff, our villa, food and of course the location were all great. Highly recommend, we will return for sure. The location is remote, which we liked and therefore not for someone wanting to party the night away. The hotel is a quiet haven. Ukunda airport is about 40 mins drive... More

I could tell you about the unparalleled Swahili style design of this place, built from the ground up by the owner whilst he was sleeping in a tent on the site - until it was exactly how he wanted it. I could tell you about how in Villa 3, I once got from my bed into the private infinity pool... More

My wife and I live in Namibia and my parents and sister in Belgium, this year we decided to meet each-other "half-way" in Kenya! The last 4 days of our trip we spend at Msambweni Beach House and we loved it! We had the Master-room I, II and III in the Main house, both rooms are huge, with great views... More

Stayed at the hotel in August. We were happy with the upgrade and villa 1 is definetly the best villa. Concern was that the TV in our room had a problem and their food was average as compared to the other hotels we stayed at. It's good for families. Although the beach is a bit narrow. Most hotels give a... More

We drove down from Diani Beach after spending our first three nights of being in Kenya partying our hearts out. It was a little difficult to find (a map was emailed to us but we failed to take it with us) and it was about 15 minutes off the main road, but the villagers were all helpful & willing to... More

We visited Msambweni Beach House recently and were blown away by the beauty of the place and its surroundings. The hotel is perched on a small cliff, surrounded by an abundant tropical garden and overlooking the Indian Ocean. It has been masterfully visualized, with breathtakingly beautiful perspectives everywhere you look. There is a sophisticated elegance to the choice of its... More
