It is a very quiet inn where one can truly relax. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We decided to take an excursion into Mombasa and the hotel arranged... More

It's also only minutes from Ukunda Airstrip (UKA) with direct flights from Nairobi, so getting there couldn't be easier. Rooms We stayed in the "honeymoon suite" -... More

I recently enjoyed a very quick stay at Mzima House in advance of bringing a bigger group later in the year. The property and the location are absolutely stunning, and offer complete relaxation. The rooms were beautiful and extremely comfortable, the food was fresh and delicious and the staff went above and beyond. Highly recommended!

I have been to Mzima House twice and both times we had an unforgettable good time. This last time was with a group of friends for a short stay to mainly evaluate the place for a larger group holiday later this year. We all loved it and we'll be back! We stayed in the main house which has a luxurious... More

Attended a wedding at Mzima House recently. It is certainly a stunning location for a beach wedding. The main house with its bedrooms facing a courtyard swimming pool is stunning. There is a nice apartment block at the rear of the property which is well built and appointed. The gardens and lawns are well cared for and attended. The beach... More
