I spend two nights in scorpio villas during June, which is the low season for that area. They only have around 10 guests and everyone enjoys their stay. The italian food is super delicous and the villas is beatiful with several pools, bar, dinning hall and around 50 spaciuos bangalows. From the paintings, books, local sculptors and exquisite accessories you... More

I decided with my boyfriend to visit Kenya in November/December 2013. I was really amazed about the beauty of the nature and hospitality of local people. We've chosen Scorpio Villas based on the reviews the hotel had. I need to say that the whole area and service there was much better than I expected. The architecture of the complex is... More

We stayed here over Christmas. It was awsome. A lovely hotel set in tropical gardens with four swimming pools, yet a two minute walk from their private beach. The way the hotel rooms are dedigned You get the feeling of being in your own private villa. We enjoyed relaxing on the swahili bed on the verandah of our room. Since... More

We spent our honeymoon here in November 2011 and it was the best experience ever! The prices are affordable and the service and customer care is just excellent. I would love to visit it again if time allows. Esther

Almost everything is perfect in Scorpio Villas. I visited a lot of places, but the people in Malindi are very kind and helpful, especially the staff. Always friendly and they don't walk away for a chat. They aren't very resourceful. There is yogurt, fruit and ice, but they can't make a smoothie. The rooms are big, clean and there is... More

The resort looks quite recently built and the rooms are very nice. There are numerous swimming pools, never very busy, and there is private access to the beach as well (although not as nice as the beaches in Watamu or further south in Malindi, as there is quite a lot of seaweed). The food is ok (particularly breakfast) but there... More
