The Tijara Beach resort experiecnce of our family of five over the New Year 2014 was (almost) perfect. Great setting, wonderful very roomy guest houses - absolute luxury, stunning views, immaculate grounds, strong breeze without which the heat would have been oppressive, very very nice pool, great beach (with total privacy, no one else there) and reef in front of...

On our previous visits we were using Tijara for relaxation after a strenuous safaris. For this visit, planned over 12 months ago, we dedicated all of our 3 weeks to relaxing & enjoying this very special place. Larissa picked us up on 24 Dec at MBA from our flight from NBO. As always we received a very warm welcome. Within... More

We went to this hotel after safari, to just swim in the pool and do nothing. Afterwards, it was so great, that Ian organised a trip to Mombasa Old City and also snorkling. The food was the best in whole Mombasa (except mango juice, which was a little bit frozen). After our 4-days stay, Ian drove Us to the airport... More

Unwind and renew your spirit is Tijara's moto and last weekend this is exactly what we did! Being in the tourism industry and having travelled to many places and visited hundreds of properties, I can with all confidence say that Tijara was a mind-blowing experience.

I was invited to visit Tijara Beach and I was so impressed, riding over bumpy roads you eventually arrive at gates, and WOW when they are opened you are taken into a little Paradise.

My wife and I, with our teenage daughters, spent 6 very restful nights at this peaceful veritable Garden of Eden after 8 days of safari upcountry. The simply delightful cottages (only 4 so it is all very private!) have elevated positions which provide quite extraordinary views across the Indian Ocean. Memories of relaxing on the verandahs looking out at the... More

By visiting at the beginning of the season we had the good fortune to have Tijara to ourselves though with only 4 guest houses I don't think you'd ever feel crowded!
