We are so pleased that we didn't let politicians and the media put us off travelling to Kenya. This was the holiday of a life time and more than lived up to expectations. After visiting the Rift Valley and Masai Mara we spent 5 glorious days at Pinewood. What bliss. The setting is magical. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious... More

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

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.

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

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.
