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

The area and resort was very clean and safe. Food is excellent and service perfect. This resort and its location has everything - Safari 1h away, Swimming... 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

During my fair share of traveling I have stayed at a number of top class hotels. This one was the best! As with other first rate seaside hotels the surrounding nature and beach are beautiful. The service and the food are impeccable, but more personal than elsewhere. During every dinner you'll have your own waiter who serves you in one... More

We visited Kinondo Kwetu for 7 days after a week's safari. The perfect place to wind down and relax. Accommodation was excellent. Staff are all brilliant - special mention to Dickson who is incredible - always at hand with such a friendly smile !. True, the food is a 'fixed' menu, but you can ask for alternatives - we travelled... More

From the minute I arrived the kind och loveable staff of Kinondo Kwetu took great care of me. I checked in with my 3 kids, 9, 7 and 1 year old. I thought I would have a hard time with 3 kids on my own. But the sweet nanny, Rut (that Kinondo arranged for me) helped me with the kids... More
