The African House Resort is an interesting place, very friendly and helpful staff. Full of African carpets, carvings and memorabilia. Lovely pool and setting with spacious rooms. 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

Italian style and sense of Africa make African house unique place. Whether you come for your honeymoon or just for holiday and relax... 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

This must be one of the most luxurious hotels in Malindi complemented by competent and friendly staff. The attention to detail is phenomenal. A must for anyone that wants to impress!! This hotel seems to be in demand so best to book early.

Having been transferred here at the last minute from our original choice hotel, my wife and I spent a fantastic 4 days at African House. The staff were really friendly, and very helpful; especially when it came to arranging a tuk-tuk to town on Saturday night. had a wonderful stay, and will definitely return at the first opportunity.

As described by other reviewers, this place is crammed with African antiques and curios. With only 5 large rooms, and very spacious public areas, it feels more like staying in a private villa. We were the only guests there in the second week of January, so obviously very quiet. Staff very helpful. Could be picky about some aspects of the... More
