It was a great place. Beautiful beach, nice beds, nice service & hospitality. A good place to run away. My only issue was the timing of the food. However the food was good but not on good timing. kindly work on that. However, beautiful place.. Will visit you soon again.

After month of hard work on new projects I was literally exhausted, looking for a place to hide away. Life and profession gifted me some very exclusive destination like Aman or Four Season Resorts, so I demanded something ambitious and unique. My online research brought me to a small Boutique Style Hotel, called –The Maji- at one of Africa’s most... More

My wife and I stayed here over a 3 day long weekend and decided to try a new place on the coast. The Maji is a very unique property with what can best be described as a 'swimming pool moat' that surrounds the building, lovely chairs and day beds overlooking the beach, and nicely appointed rooms with air conditioning, generously...

Thank you most sincerely for your comments concisely describing and complimenting the unique features of The Maji, but at the same time outlining certain operational shortcomings. We are sorry for the inexcusable long wait for you to get a cup of coffe one morning and we are also sorry that fish and eggs that you have ordered, where not cooked... More

It's been my experience in the past that places tend not to live up to the pictures that grace their glossy brochures and online listings. In many instances, they've been airbrushed to within an inch of their lives, creating a type of hyper-reality that can rarely be imitated in real life. So when I booked my stay at The Maji,... More

We spent a lovely weekend in this amazing retreat...way too short! The facility is simply stunning, surrounded by water features all around the hotel (here comes the name Maji, which in swahili means water), exquisite furnitures and unique art pieces. The staff at the Maji is extremely caring and smart and the food, served at tailored times and places, is... More

We have been to most hotels in Mombasa and wanted to stay clear of the big hotels. Maji was perfect. Excellent service. Beautiful decor. Food fantastic. Beach was heavenly.Best place we have stayed at in Mombasa by far. Cant recommend it enough for a small group with no kids. Perfect for our family break!
