the environs are phenomenal. the beautiful touch of Swahili landscape and the complexity of the architecture which is refined to the core is more than appealing. from the very step you take into the reception into the expansive infinity pool to the beautiful and safe rooms around. every step is delicate and precise. the water from the beach and the...

Stayed for 3 wonderful days. Everything was amazing. From the stunning view of the ocean and to the fresh food. The deputy manager made our stay homely. The hotel decor and ambience influenced our dressing to a more relaxed theme so as to fully play the part. It was Out of this world indeed.

A manager came to greet us and ask if we were comfortable during breakfast, which was quite nice.The hotel is beautiful in itself, the room almost twice the size of all other hotels I've been to in Mombasa/Diani area. My daughter little... More

Boutique hotel with a north-african feel and architecture, amazing rooms, an unreal swimming pool (7 pools actually interconnected), the beach is a quite rocky so disappointing, but didn't feel the need to leave the hotel. Food could do with a few more veg options, but otherwise very delicious. Would def come back!
