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.

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
