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

We were a large party staying for two nights. The owners (the whole family) were wonderful, however, if they could have been a little more accommodating it would have made so much difference. The food was nothing brilliant and always took so long to come even the desserts were just ice cream it was not well thought about at all... More

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our hospitality and the location of The Funzi Keys. Feedback from the group leader was also very positive. We offer a very informal style of barefoot luxury, away from the hubbub of Mombasa, and we like to be as accommodating as possible to the needs of our guests. We welcome guests to... More

After a few days at Masai Mara, we went for a couple of days to Funzi Keys. When we arrived, we felt very well immediately. The owners were very kind and eager to make you at home. And the staff, specially Abdullah, was very attentive. If you are looking for air conditioning and tv, this is not for you. Funzi... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at Funzi a couple of weeks ago and are still coming back down to earth afterwards - simply an amazing place for a relaxing getaway. It's a family run place, and they and the staff are extremely welcoming, generous and attentive. Rooms are fantastic and perfectly suited to the desert island feel of... More

This place is heaven on earth! We arrived late in the afternoon, after a calm and peaceful boat ride. I cannot describe the feeling of calmness and peace that comes over you when you arrive at the beach in front of the reception. There is no stress here, no cell phones, no music, just ... peace and quiet. It's ideal... More

A little further down the kenyan coast but well worth the travel if you looking for a boutique hotel rustic and beautiful in its natural setting The sand bank across is a great place to relax on the bean bags have a few drinks and have a swim when it gets too warm As a vegetarian I had higher expectations...
