The place is more than beautiful and amazing access to the beach. Four swimming pools and a high quality buffet. The staff are really friendly and supportive in many ways. As Malindi could be hot in summer, air conditioning is provided in the rooms.

We recently stayed at Scorpio Villa for our honeymoon and Christmas for a week. We loved how spacious the resort is and the tranquility. But the best part of this resort is definitely the staff, the managers, restaurant, reception, housekeeping, security staff all went above and beyond to make our week memorable. The buffet is so unique and tasty it... More

Our second Christmas at Scorpio villas. Its fantastic! Peaceful, serene and great attentive staff. It really is the jewell of Malindi. Three swimming pools, private beach and a beach bar. Great for a relaxing break.

I once stayed at a hostel in the middle of the Andes that doubled as an automotive repair shop. When I asked for the toilet, I was handed a small bucket. This place was worse. Just horrible in every respect. I would rather sleep in the back of a tuk tuk than spend another night here.

I spent a wonderful week at Scorpio in early November. From the beginning I felt very special - everyone tried to make my stay pleasant and help me with any questions and requests I had. The hotel is situated at the ocean and owns its private secured beach where you can leave your stuff while swimming or walking at the... More
