If you love quiet and peace.... rustic, well chosen and selected pieces.... this is the place to go. I went on a short business trip to Malindi with a colleague/friend and landed in this beautiful home. We were given the two rooms upstairs in the the main house..... the landing upstairs is beautifully laid out in true Lamu and jungle... More

The rooms all appear to be very spacious with very comfortable, large 4-poster beds. I found it to be very comfortable and relaxing, especially as the hotel is set some way back from the beach and the many other hotels and resorts along Casuarina Road. The rooms and the general decor of the place is set out with lots of... More

We spent 2 nights at the African House Resort. The rooms were spacious, cosy and authentic decoration. Very peaceful environment. Restaurant is quite pricey but the meals are worth trying. Wifi available at the reception area.

If you are looking for a different and quite location outside of Malindi then this is for you, only a short ride via Tuk, Tuk into Malindi town. It was the low season... More

totally impressed by this small boutique hotel- it is full of art from all over the continent! Just that would be enough, but this place is also in a compound full of trees. . .and with a pool you will definitely fall in love with! The rooms are all perfect for couples, but although children are welcome, this place with... More

The nicest hotel I have ever done... From Malindi's cute little airport, we took a taxi to the hotel, which is quite close to the airport, and came to this fantastic little hotel where Mombasa expected us barefeeted in a traditionnel dress with a smile. You just enter, and you realise that the photos that you've seen from there don't... More
