The owner wanted to build a resort in respect of the nature and environment. Challenge done with full success and taste. The resort with different cottages and atmospheres is full of little and elegant details. Rooms are beautifull, made with natural elements. Really clean and maintained. A lot of space between the cottages garantee intimity. Monkeys are jumping around while... More

We spent about nine days at Forest Dream, more tha expexcted. It is a very nice, well-run place with very nice staff. The place is exotic and at some distance from the hectic all-inclusive resorts - but yet with beach access. It is close to nature and worked very well for our children, not least the pool area. Recommended!

We (husband, wife and two kids aged 10 and 12) were in Kenya visiting family over Christmas and New Year.

We found Forest Dream on the internet, did a bit of research... More

As we live in Kenya, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a coastal rental. Given the usual stampede for a Christmas booking we considered ourselves extremely lucky to have found Forest dream only 2 weeks to our preferred holiday date. We had visited their direct website and booked to stay in Leopard cottage from 21st-27th... More

Really lovely gem of a hotel with excellent staff and service. A great way to see this part of the world without falling into the tourist trap. We especially loved the very fresh food and privacy of our villa.
