Though i was visiting the area for work i felt really calm and well taken care of every morning i left the hotel and came back in the evening. The rooms are awesome and spacious creating a feeling of home. Love cooling at the beachfront and with great service and nice food i couldn't have had a much better time.

Spacious suites under traditional makuti roofing gives the accommodation experience an authentic african feel. Very welcoming and flexible reception. It was very quiet which made for a restful nite after a long day. Didn't get a chance to sample dinner but if the breakfast is anything to go by then for sure it must be a memorable experience. The decor... More

The rooms were great although we stayed on the old side so the showers were alright not the best. The staff was very friendly and food was great. Swimming pools were a bit of a let down except for the one next to the spa. However the one next to the spa in not next to the beach.

Great friendly staff, clean large rooms, as works although loud, laundry service fair and good job, resort as a whole very clean, and good price for what your get. The lay out is hard to understand does not flow at all. To get to your room, pool, spa, and beach access I would recommend dropping bread crumbs.

I spent seven nights on holiday at Kilili. I have to confess that I had never heard of the place before my travel specialist recommended it highly for my time out. I was pleasantly surprised by this small and lovely getaway by the beach!!! There is great attention to detail in the way the place is put together. I loved... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Kilili. It was just what we needed after months of hectic wedding planning.It was quiet,the staff were pleasant and the food amazing.We enjoyed the Spa and the atmosphere. We would recommend anyone to visit especially couples who just want to get away and spend time together. We will be back!

Kilili Baharini Resort & Spa is easily reached by tuk tuks to Casuarina road, Malindi or by plane. Attentive staff, willing to be challenged. The beach is devoid of crowding mobs and the sunbeds, just aptly located. Strategic and quaint location allows visits to other tourist places nearby. Many swimming pools... Lovely clean, spacious rooms with a privacy feel. Italian... More

The hotel is located outside in a quite area (on Casurina Road) actually far enough from city center, that could be reached by taxi (hard to get them) or by tuk-tuk (easy to get on the street, like NY style, if you wanna feel the Africa spirit). Despite that, considering that city center is not offering lots of special attractions... More

We managed to have an amazing time at Kilili Baharini even though it was technically winter in Kenya in June(!). Despite the occasional wintery weather there was still plenty of time to hang out on the beautiful beach reading books, drinking coffee, trying out neighboring restaurants down the beach, etc. The staff was genuinely cheery and happy to have us,...

Loved everything about this place. Lovely spacious rooms, awesome food, attentive staff nothing was too much for them and the location allows one to visit other places. Enjoyed the breakfast by the room terraces, relaxing on the beds by the beach while enjoying cocktailsvery peaceful. Would highly recommend to people looking to detox from the daily stresses of life.
