We stayed in the Firimbi Cottage (2 Bedroom) and had a great time. Both inside and the outdoor area was really nice. The beach is reasonably close by. The chef and house keeper were great. The Manager was also really really helpful.

Spent quite a lot of time, especially in the evenings, on the porch. The meals we had was also in the dining area on the porch. Two nights... More

Stayed with my partner and our daughter (14 months) at the smaller cottage at Kitu Kidogo for two weeks in march 2014. We absolutely loved it! The cottage is nicely decorated inside out, well maintaned, and the porch facing the ocean breeze is a really good place to hang out, especially for our daughter. The excellent staff gives the place... More
