After 6 days on safari we were very ready for some chill-out time and Pinewood was just magical. It is a small hotel down an unmade road about 15 minutes drive from Ukunda airstrip. The rooms are laid out in small buildings either side of a path that leads down to the pool and beach. The staff are so friendly... More

We had a four night stay here after our safari and couldnt fault anything. The best thing about this resort are the staff, always smiling and going out of their way to make our stay something to remember. It was very quiet at the time of our visit, it felt that we had the whole place to ourselves. Hopefully the... More

This was our third visit to Kenya and Pinewood Beach Resort and Soa. I had tried booking with Virgin at the end of 2013 to be told they were no longer featuring the hotel, so I contacted the hotel myself and booked directly with them, and then booked flights with Kenya Airways, sat back and waited for August. When things... More

Pinewood is a stunning piece of paradise. We have stayed five times for various memorable occasions. First time when we married there 11 years ago, and again last year for our 10th anniversary. We were upgraded when we arrived last year to a stunning suite as repeat guests and were treated like royalty. The most amazing meal was served up... More

Lovely gardens, safe swimming, excellent culinary team, very friendly staff. We were a little nervous because the The Uk Foreign Office reservations about Mombasa, but Ukunda is so quiet & the people so friendly that we were made to feel like welcome guests. Everybody smiles at you & I think they are genuinely pleased to see visitors as this coast... More

most memorable holiday of my life made even more special from the service I received. I couldn't resist leaving gifts for the monkeys just to watch their cheek. If there is a power cut be sure to get to the beach and look up. Most amazing sky I have ever seen.

Top notch service! We wanted for nothing. From check-in, dining, sleeping to check-out - the staff was attentive and very helpful. The grounds are meticulously maintained. Dining room service was beyond reproach, Amani Spa was luxurious. We enjoyed the pool, the bars, the beach, the tranquility. A slice of heaven for sure! Pamela was phenomenal.... FREE TUSKERS TOMORROW!

We stayed at Pinewood for the New Year's, as a group of 2 families with children. The new year eve party on the beach was great fun. The beach is very quiet and due to the remote location of the resort, there aren't much sales pitches on the beach. The Dive Camp next to the resort, actually doesn't belong to... More

My wife and I got married at the Pinewood Beach Hotel three years ago and while we didn't get around to doing our review at the time we wanted to tell our story in-light of the current worries for tourists. We could not say enough about the hotel, the facilities, the great spa, variety of food, helpful and friendly staff... More
