Heaven on earth, a unique experience. The resort is managed with love and attention by its owners. Tasteful swahili decoration. Their cuisine is excellent, I particularly enjoyed the exremely fresh fish and seafood. A very safe and laid back place to go!

As a frequent holiday maker to Diani, we visited Funzi Keys this December. This was an experience to be cherished forever thanks to the beautiful natural setting of the resort, giving a real island experience, a feel for pure relaxation, and thanks to the fantastic hosting by the owners (The Toriani Family). The well trained staff took very good care... More

I found the Funzi Keys while searching in internet for a place on the Kenyan coast which could offer a beautiful and natural environment, comfort but also the chance to explore and enjoy sea-activities. After spending 5 days at Funzi, I must admit that The Funzi Keys has gone beyond my expectations. I traveled with my daughter ( 8 years... More

This is a place for good food, relaxation and being spoiled. We flew to Ukunda (Diani) from Nairobi, drove 30 mins to the dock, took a boat to the island and were thoroughly spoiled for the weekend. The setting is sublime, the rooms are well appointed and the staff very attentive. There's a really nice pool and at low tide... More

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel with Spa, aircon, entertainment than this is not the place to be. If you are looking for a family run little hotel to relax with all the comfort you like than go to Funzi. It is a beautiful relaxing place. Rooms are all open - no door, no window glass. You...

I attended a wedding at Funzi and besides enjoying all my new found relatives, I really enjoyed the laid back but superlative nature of the hotel and surroundings. The owners and staff were excellent, on point and very attentive. Their children were lovely and their staff were really nice. The food was great especially the fish dishes, beer was cold,... More

For that true Robinson Crusoe experience this is a must as the location is like something out of a James Bond movie!! It can be incredibly hot but luckily the ocean is at the door step to provide a cool breeze in the evening. The managers were welcoming and courteous if not a little stand-offish but were wholly pleasant and... More

I stayed at Funzi Keys for 4 nights over New Year's Eve when I was let down by the accommodation I had originally booked. I absolutely loved it...it's one of the most relaxing places I have ever been (and I'm very well travelled) and I'll never forget waking up one night to a full moon and the lapping of the... More

Beautiful setting, wonderful welcome from all, including the owners, all staff very friendly, service in 'Kenya time' but hey what's the rush...We initially thought the food portions were rather small but as the days went by we realised that they were just right. The simple home cooked food was good and very fresh, grown, reared or caught locally. Dinner was... More
