The location is splendid and the hospitality is awesome . They all tried to make us feel home, and the result was satisfying! They organized a transportation... More

I stayed in this hotel over the dec period, whilst the hotel is ideally situated overlooking the coast with a decent sized swimming pool. The service and room quality leave alot to be desired.

I stayed in kivulini for four nights with my girls. I must say it was the best decision I ever made as far as booking this luxury resort. The rooms are big and spacious!

My wife and I had a memorable two nights stay for our marriage anniversary. Service was prompt and the staff very pleasant and helpful! A proper sandy beachfront would have earned the resort the five stars. Nonetheless, I hope to visit again and would definitely recommend a visit.
