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

Wow from 35 minutes drive and 15 minute boat trip we experienced heavenly treatment. Rooms ver luxurious with own spa, bottle bubbly on arrival and lovely hosts. On the expensive side but well worth the treat. Only disappointment was the red wine included but such a small thing to moan about. Although fully inclusive we organised a seafood platter at...

For the amount of money you pay definately Funzi keys are ripping people off,i even suspect some of the reviews were written by them so as to lure people into thinking that some of the guests are just too demanding! The food was horrible,my kenyan maid will make better spaghetti bolognese,my babys portion was same as for adults,too small and... More

Funzi Keys has 1km of white sandy beach front with each cottage perfectly situated to provide privacy but easy access to the restaurant and pool. The cottages are large and spacious with each featuring either a jacuzzi or hot tub, but will soon need to be updated. The food is good especially the Italian dishes with the gnocchi being outstanding.... More

I always use Tripadvisor to read reviews when I book a holiday/hotel but had actually never written one myself. Our stay at Funzi Keys was that disappointing though that I felt the need to put our experiences here to avoid others having a similar experience. We spent a week here during our honeymoon in January and were very disappointed by... More
