Upendo, which means love in Swahili, is a pure slice of healing heaven. There's no other place like it on the island, or anywhere in the world. The minute you walk through the rustic gates, a thousand shades of blue surround you in a healing wrap. Trish's design sense is impeccable -- the entire space is set up for ultimate... More

Arriving before sunset on a Saturday afternoon at Upendo, I was welcomed at the bar, (which doubles as Reception), with big smiles and a complimentary chilled 'Kilimanjaro' beer while other guests relaxed on the inviting beach front lounge area, to the sounds of mellow jazz. I was shown to the main villa, beautifully contemporary, with an open plan living area,... More
