I've been here with my family, on my own and with a group of male friends in the last few years. This time there were 12 or us - 3 families with kids from 8 to 13 years old. It's always a bit scary going to a place you've recommended but after no time at all everyone felt the same... More

Perfect for a few days of total relaxation, for couples or families. Very small hotel, really quiet and tranquil. Surrounded by natural beauty, warm seas, coral reef, cheeky monkeys in the trees, horse riding on the beach, yoga on the deck. We LOVED it and would love to return one day....

Just loved the break at the beach and couldn't have asked for a better setting, staff or food - they were so accommodating of our children and catered for their every need. We didn't swim in the ocean but the pool was wonderful...next time I will try our the yoga. Only complaint is the height of the Swahili beds!

In short - superb service, loveliest staff, gorgeous food and such a beautiful place. Attention to detail galore! Nothing has been overlooked. Not a gold sink or flat screen. Barefoot luxury at its best!

Kinondo Kwetu has a lot going for it. The position is lovely, the main pool is huge, everything is well maintained, there are ample sun loungers everywhere and the staff could not be more helpful. There are a few things which would stop us going back, however. The first is that there was no dive operation. A local divemaster comes... More

Kinondo Kwetu was the perfect place to conclude our Kenyan vacation. After two safari destinations Kinondo Kwetu provided us with exactly the comfort and relaxation we were looking for. The service is impeccable, with staff that is courteous and genuinely kind. The owners and manager did everything they could to make us feel at home and we didn't have a... More

Our stay at Kinondo Kwetu exceeds every expectations we had (and they were high). Never have we felt so welcomed and well taken care of as we did at Kinondo. Everyone in the staff made us feel like we belonged to the family. We were a big family travelling together (26 persons). Every room was amazing, and then we "just"... More
