We were there with our family and despite the high level of the property, my kids were made to feel totally welcome. It didnt matter what noise the they made in the pool or where they ran, the staff just looked on with a smile, offering help wherever they thought we might need it. The attention to detail and the...

We are just back from a most pleasant long weekend at the Almanara Boutique Hotel & Luxury Villas on the Kenyan coast south of Mombasa. The 5 room hotel is right on the beach although secluded from the prying eyes of beach wanderers by wafting palm trees and other vegitation, but with tempting glimses of the turquoise sea beyond.
