Just back from a week’s stay at Tijara Beach. We had a wonderful stay and we’d go back again. It was a wonderful, relaxing time. This resort I’m giving an international 4, but an African 5. If you are looking for a place to “unplug” and completely relax for a vacation, this is a soft you want to visit. This... More

Faced with a rather dark and cold Christmas my wife and I wanted sunlight and warmth so we opted to head to Kenya after finding this resort on Trip Advisor. What we found was excellent privacy and relaxation that allowed us to be a couple, catch up on books and take in the views with the occasional jaunt into Mombasa... More

Tijara Beach is a good place for a get away vacation. Getting there from the Airport takes a little while, and it is far from most of the tourist attractions in Mombasa. But if you are looking for a quiet and serene place, this is perfect!

The property only has 4 houses, for us this was really important as we did not want to stay in a big hotel. The houses are so beautiful, amazingly decorated and the... More

We stayed at Tijara for four nights, as a friend had highly recommended the place. We were excited to begin with but could not possibly know how great an experience it would be. Ian collected us from the airport and even offered to drive us to the nearest supermarket so that we could run some basic errands. The drive over... More

If you're looking for a magical, peaceful, getaway in paradise, Tijara is it. From the minute we arrived at the airport, we felt incredibly taken care of.
