This is definitely the best place we have been in Kenya! We had a wonderful time there, a relaxing holiday with good food, good bed and wonderful location. Also, the staff is really excellent and well trained, they were very careful in respecting our privacy but always helpful and friendly when needed. Top-notch!

Mswambweni Beach House is one of the most sought after places to stay on the South Coast of Kenya. The homes are tastefully designed with attention to detail. All the staff are friendly and very helpful

This was our last stop on our honeymoon. We pulled up to a beautiful white washed walled house with a picturesque thatched roof. We were met by Terry one of the mangers who checked us in despite us being early, showed us around the property and took our lunch orders for once we were settled. The room (we were master... More

This was my second visit to Msambweni, and it was truly a slice of heaven. Great rooms (very clean, well appointed & spacious), fantastic food and service, and overall just a really relaxing and warm ambience. The villas with the pools add privacy. The masseuse is amazing, and the location of the massage room (right on the beach) is sublime.... More

Msambweni Beach House is a beautiful, very small and exclusive hotel. It only has 3 rooms in the main building and it has 3 gorgeous villa's with their own private pools. The food is amazing (you'll get a lot of seafood, my favourite was lobster), the people go out of their way to make the guests happy and ofcourse the... More

This is really a great place if you want to have a bit of piece and relax. Perfect for honeymooners. We had a room in the main house and it was lovely with a big terrace (just watch out for the monkeys and do not leave the door open!). As the place was not fully booked they even allowed us... More

We were in Mswambweni Beach House for two nights only but we could have stayed forever. What a great place. When we arrived at the lodge, we were immediately very well treated. The house is amazing as it has a great interior design (all white) and a very nice infinity pool. We stayed at one of the three private rooms... More

My husband and I stayed at Msambweni after a walking and jeep safari. From our arrival at the hotel to the moment we left, we were so well looked after. We stayed in Private Villa 1 which is huge with a pool to die for and a beautiful view. At the side of the villa is a gate. If left... More
