Mnarani Club is perfect when it comes to views from the room. Stayed there for a 3 nights and 4 days and wished it were more. Enjoyed the view of the bay from a large room with a wonderful balcony. Food was lovely esp. the desserts. Hotel has a lot of space for jogging and that was a plus. All... More

This was hands down the best trip I have had. We travelled in August during off peak period, so the hotel was fairly quiet. Our room overlooked a secluded beach. We were worried about mosquitoes, and the resultant risk of malaria, but we didnt encounter many bugs. Even so, the hotel is well equiped, and staff come nightly to spray... More

We were worried about visiting Kenya with all the recent media hype but decided to go and now we will never let the minority view influence our actions! We would have missed out on the best trip of our lives. The Mnarani Hotel was fantastic. We were given a very warm and friendly greeting and we could not have asked... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful this hotel is. So few hotels get so many things so right. Nothing is ever to much trouble. Stunning location. Amazing staff. A home away from home. I can't wait to return.

Our plane has just landed and I couldn't wait to rave! We've just had the pleasure of visiting this club and spa for my sisters wedding and we couldn't have asked for more! The setting to relax and unwind was perfect. Relaxing in the pool, taking in the water sports or simply relaxing in the bar or spa. This then... More

We were visiting the Kenyan coast from the UK, and had been a bit nervous because of recent news reports - our friends who live in Kenya came with us, and made us realise that the news in the UK is a very skewed picture and that there is little or no threat to our safety in Kilifi - in... More

Mnarani is a fairly standard, good value hotel, set in a fab location at the top of the small cliff overlooking Kilifi Creek. The beach is just down below where you can use the sailing / wind surfing / kayaking equipment that is included in the package. Lots of sailing boats from Lasers to Darts, all in good condition and... More

We have just returned from a very good week in Kilifi Creek, off Kenya's coast. We booked our accommodation at Mnarani Club, through 3degreessouth sailing and watersports facility and we got a great deal. It was the ideal place to spend 6 nights - we were two families of four - so four kids aged between 9 & 15 years... More

I was travelling on a budget and couldn't afford the daily rates, but I did make my way there a few times for the day pass: lunch + swimming + access to beach for only 1200 KSH. If you're really going to spend the day soaking up the sun, I don't see a better option than the Mnarani Club. The... More

Had promised our daughter and school friend that we would go back so they could do their RYA qualification with 3 Degrees (based in the hotel), 3 days of sailing for them and 3 days to relax and enjoy for us mothers! Mnarani never fails to please and you come away feeling so relaxed having seen fabulous sunsets and sunrises... More
