The 4 bedroom villa is very compact with all amenities, AC equipped, housekeeping and the main attraction was the swimming pool which was good both for kids and adults. The villas are not beachfront or anywhere near the beach and one... More

A nice hotel, tucked away in Mambrui. Extremely quiet and peaceful. Had lunch at their Italian restaurant .... Quite delicious. If one needs to get away to a tranquil place, this is it....A nice beach but the water is not as clear as Watamu

After landing at the Malindi airport and being reminded of a small town in India you might not expect much even to the point of reaching the gate of Kola Beach Resort. But, like the young boy in Narnia when he opens the door after entering the closet you will step into a magical land. Naomi with her big friendly... More

The strength of this hotel is the warmth and hospitality of mr Valerio. The hotel lacks some amenities but Valerio made us forget these. His smile and attention to details made our stay a fantastic one.
