My partner and I visited out of season. And we'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. The place was immaculate. We were given a free upgrade without asking. As the restaurant was closed, we were offered a personal chef... Zuhura. She was wonderful. The food was divine and nothing was too much trouble. Juma was super amazing and... More

We stayed at Forest Dream Resort for 5 days in April 2015, it was a truly fantastic experience. We arrived directly from a safari, and Juma the receptionist showed us to our room. It was a beautiful cottage, very clean and spacious. Because of the low season we had the whole place to ourselves for most of the stay. For... More

The whole process from booking to checking out was so easy and the staff couldn't have been more helpful! We booked directly through the hotel who explained clearly the prices of everything and helped us organise very reasonable transfers (4500Ksh) from Mombasa Airport in our own private vehicle. When we got to Mombasa, our driver, Patrick, picked us up at... More

We stayed there for 4 nights middle of august and really enjoyed the nice jungle athmosphere around us. We were the only guests as Kenia was completely empty because of the terrorist attacks. We were lucky and received an upgrade to a nice villa with own swimming pool. Also we had an own cook, Humphrey, who cooked us very delicious... More

Dear Tiigeri Thank you so much for your review! I wish I could thank you in person for your review. It seems that there are only very few people left over who want to go to the coast aria because of the securety situation at this moment. However we have not experienced any problem at our resort and so have... More

Let's say that it was a strange moment for the coast. For the several attacks in the north of Kenya during the weeks before, nobody was around, even if it was high season. We were the only guests of the resort and there weren't facilities for us. The resturant was close,as the bar. We booked the bed and breakfast solution... More

Dear Alma Thank you for your honest review.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights in March. The hotel was lovely and the cottages (in which we stayed) were beautiful, well-maintained and very clean. I loved the tree-house feel of my room! The food was quite good (we even asked for vegetarian entrees for dinner and were made a wonderful vegetable curry with chapati). The cocktails... More

Dear sisters Wakefield Thank you very much for your honest review.

Wonderful cottages spread out amongst the Forest, making you feel like you've got the place to yourself. We went as two couples, in separate cottages (bed and bath) with a shared central living area and kitchen hut. We hired a local chef, who turned out to be amazing, with French and Italian training. He sourced our food and made bread... More

Had a fantastic 5 nights at a perfect spot. Wonderful food. Dont miss the juices. A lovely walk to the beach where the nomad beach bar watch your things while snorkelling around the sandbank.remember to feed the bushbaby at night time and take pictures of the monkeys. Kayaking at funzi Island is a perfect daytrip.
