I have just returned from a long vacation in Malindi and while I did not stay at Kilili Baharini I did take advantage or their program of being able to use their beach facilities, spa, and having lunch by the pool area. The staff and all at Kilili Baharini couldn't have been more welcoming and nice and it is guest... More

I have have been at kilili baharini for the last four days and its been really relaxing. The staff are very attentive. The room is spacious and there are all this lounge chairs and day beds even at the beach. The rooms are few and private adding to the cozy feel. And on some days, they serve you breakfast at...

We stayed here for 2 nights this past weekend. I hardly ever write reviews for places, but this is just an incredible hotel, completely relaxing, beautiful, clean, excellent service. I love how the structure of the hotel gives privacy, including a private pool, and the rooms are HUGE and gorgeous. There are beds all over the beach, so many places... More

Kilili rightly ranks in the top 5 on TA for the past couple of years. One of the few places in Malindi where quality and service actually matches the prices they charge. Great airy rooms with plunge pools all over the compound and two larger pools near the top end spa and the coconut tree lined beach. Good breakfast now... More

After discovering this beautiful paradise right on the beach, it was a total surprise when the food served to us looked and tasted like something from a street stall outside. Hope the Italian management address this soon before we look elsewhere

Extraordinary! Eventhough you feel like in the middle of italian beach (90 % of guests are from Italy) the international spirit is there. Excellent service. All rooms with view to almost private swimming pool which we used in the evening after wole day at the beach. Marco - the manager takes care of all guests and train the stuff to... More

My second trip to Malindi and this trip was focused on fishing the Indian Ocean... hot and fairly cramped and tiring but exciting two days, on a boat. We really needed pampering...lovely large rooms with super efficient air-conditioning and tastefully done. The main pool was ready for use by 8.00 am and the beach blissfully empty of hawkers and hustlers,... More

I'd give this hotel 3 stars if that. The room looked old and shabby. Breakfast had to be ordered to the room, so when you order a fruit platter you get one banana, half a passion fruit and one piece of mango - awful! When Kenya is known for the freshest fruits and vegetables, ordering an orange juice and getting... More

The hotel is very nicely done, with the coastal touch. I took the Room near the spa, had a nice big pool next to the room. Service and food was good. I was so disappointed with the beach it was full of sea weed, couldnt walk or swim, probably seasonal. Theres a gym on the beach. Breakfast is served in... More
