My family spent a wonderful week at Mwembe resort in early December, before the mad holiday rush begun, and it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We loved the ambiance and the restfully quiet environment after a year of hustle and bustle in the city. Being the mango season we a bonus surprise as we got... More

On first approaching the hotel, after my 3 day stay at Coral Key (in Malindi), the gates of Mwembe looked like a prison. But it seemed like a pleasant place to stay from the inside. We had a few problems with rooms at first, but we ended up in a suite thanks to our RCI membership. The room was great,... More

One would think being a hotel without a beach front means unbearable heat and still air. However Mwembe grounds are filled with trees many being Mango and the cool shade and breeze makes sitting at the balcony pleasant. I counted 5 pools in total .... The rooms are amazing

We recently made our way down south to the coastal town of Malindi for the grand opening of Mwembe Resort's new development "The Village". A collection of fully furnished 5 star 1 and 2 bedroom luxury holiday homes. The houses are truly a sight to behold for their modest size, they have a really sophisticated appeal about their interior design... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we were very happy we did. We loved the fact that it was off the main drag because it was quiet!! There is a free shuttle into town or to the beach, but we were not inconvenienced at all by the set times- if you want to go at other... More

Mwembe resort is a good place located at a distance of about 0.8 km from the main road. One major dissapointment is that it is located far away from the beach. The fridges in the rooms are too small and there is also a lack of fundamental kitchen appliances eg sandwich maker,toaster,blender.etc. The kitchen is too small and the living... More

Our first trip to Africa was spent at the Mwembe Resort in Malindi, Kenya. We loved this resort! The atmosphere was relaxing as it was beautiful. Our villa was always clean with fresh flowers placed either on our bed, the table or near the TV almost daily. Although it is not on the beach, shuttle services was provided which gave... More
