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

I stayed here for 3 nights in late December 2014 when my original accommodation let me down. It's absolutely beautiful...the views from the pool are stunning, the grounds are lovely and the beach is magnificent. The food was a real highlight, I loved the personalised approach in that they discussed what the chef was preparing with you in the morning... More

We had a wonderful stay. Everybody made everything / anything for us to relax and spend a fantastic extended weekend. Very professional staff. The food is delicious, the massages are perfect, the house (private villa I) is beautifully decorated, the swimming pool with natural water is a dream! A WAW stay!

Great service and hospitality a very enjoyable place with a taste of luxury like for example Friday BBQ on the beach. This is a place I highly recommend it is impossible to be badly served. Every single detail has been overlooked to give a very good atmosphere. Finally one word: relax

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. It was perfect. We stayed in Villa II on the first night (it was available just for the first night and the hotel manager very kindly upgraded us for the night). On the second night we stayed in the Ocean suite. The villa was excellent and stunning... More

This is by far the most wonderfull place I've ever stayed at. ° The whole place is white and beautifully decorated with elements of the sea and fresh flowors. The chairs and tables are all made by the local people. °The quality of food is out of your mind. Every lunch and dinner has a starter, a main course and... More

Beautiful accommodation, beautiful people, beautiful food! Great place to relax and unwind after a Safari, Fantastic service from booking, during stay through to the end. Please note I visited a couple of years back but really did rate and hence wanted to review (albeit a little late!)

Ended our safari trip with a four night stay here. Stayed in room 1 in the main villa which is probably the best in the house - it's the largest - due to the size (just three rooms in house & three villas) it does feel very private & whenever we swam in pool we enjoyed it to ourselves.

Dear Traveler and TripAdvisor team, Thank you for letting us contribute. I am happy to see that FlopsyFilly quoted her stay as very good. I would like to add is 3 points: 1.

After completing our first Safari we were advised that the Msambweni Beach House was the perfect place to relax. Indeed it was. Everything about or stay was delightful and we were thoroughly revived, not least by daily, skilled attention from Maureen, The Beach House's masseuse. Perched above a sandy, shaded beach, there were idyllic views across the Indian Ocean from... More
