Located a few minutes walk from beach, it is easy to relax in quiet comfort. The grounds are full of tropical plants, flowers and palm trees. Palm thatched coverings shelter you from the sun as you relax on comfortable couches and chairs, around the pool. The rooms are very comfortable and each is uniquely furnished with native art and comfortable... More

Giovanni, the owner and his staff more than adequately supplement this lovely quiet B&B which is little more than 5 minutes walk from lovely beaches. The accommodation is beautifully furnished with old Swahili furnishings; all 4 rooms are ensuite; the staff will prepare lovely meals for those evenings when you want to stay in. I recommend it fully. John Craven

This small villa is a perfect choice for short or long stay in Malindi. The building, furnishings, rooms, staff, gardens and pool are all top quality and you feel like you've found a secret gem and can't believe your luck. Highly recommended. I stayed for a week and could have happily sat out on the airy, spacious verandah for another.

I stayed only 1 night at Mela's but I really, really like it, what I can't say about Malindi in general. It was the best BB I have found so far in Africa. The rooms are basic, but nice and clean and there is a very nice lounge area and a nice pool. The owner and staff were very friendly.... More

I stayed at Mela's b&b for 6 weeks between last December and January and everyday I felt at home. The owner Gianni and Wilma are great hosts - always available to give you a great advice on what to do/where to go and have a chat to make you feel welcome. The premises of the villa are really good -... More

Wilma, Gianni and the staff gave us a quite magical experience. With a few thunderstorms during our stay, it was never an inconvenience sitting in the pillared living room with a Tusker. The food was wonderful as were the suggestions for local safaris and fishing - I caught a marlin! The staff were attentive and friendly and the bedrooms cool... More

The Mela`s B&B is the ideal place to have relaxed days in Malindi. The bed- and bathrooms, the dinning place (outside) and the poolarea are lovely decorated and in a nice condition. The owners are very friendly. You could reach nearly every place in Malindi in about ten minutes with a tuktuk.
