My husband and I arrived at Almanara after having a week on Safari and stayed here for 7 nights. We were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary and wanted to end our holiday with relaxation and a touch of class. I cant express enough how beautiful this place is in more ways than one. From the moment we went through the... More

Having spent a lovely weekend with Leo and Gemma at Almanara I can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and luxurious getaway on one of the most amazing beaches in Africa. The hospitality we encountered from the start was second to none and added a very personal touch to the service on offer. The villas are large... More

We had a fantastic holiday at Almanara in July 2014. Almanara Luxury Resort is situated in a spectacular location. Long and wide white sand beach lined with palm trees with the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. There is plenty of wildlife - camels passing right in front of Almanara’s gate every day. The villas are set in beautiful... More

Almanara is pure luxury from the moment you arrive at the impressive gates. Once you walk into your own villa, then the luxury and quality really shines through. We'd done our research having stayed at various 5 star hotels / resorts throughout Europe and can honestly say that our experiences at Almanara surpassed all of those. As soon as our... More

Stayed there in July 2014. Been promised by email the security was excellent. No guards around anybody could have walked in . No key to the villa until we asked for one. Panic button didn't work. Dirty villa, showering splashing the whole bathroom and had to ask three times for A bar of soap. No view from the villa and... More

Almanara never disappoints! Our third visit proved to be as refreshing as the previous visits. The gardens offer a serene & picturesque view and the service is excellent. Almanara will definitely be on our holiday destination list in 2015.

Hubby and I travelled to Almanara for the Easter holidays (stayed 3 nights) and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Almanara. We were introduced to Almanara by our friends who’ve stayed there before and they had nothing but fab things to say about it. So we thought, let’s give this a try. "Wow" doesn’t do it justice….All I can say... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend one full week at Almanara in December as the first part of our honeymoon in Kenya. We felt like royalty in our beautiful, spacious villa. The service we received was unlike no other. Wolex, our chef, was a master at his art! We had the most fresh and delicious food every... More
