We enjoyed this wonderful hotel, located right next to the beach. The staff was simply great - they took good care of us. Food was excellent. We traveled from Nairobi using Safarilink landing at Ukunda airport which is 10 min drive from the Maji.

A great hotel - my 4th stay at the Maji was again an absolute treat. The hotel agreed to retain a special Indian vegetarian chef for our visit. The rooms are brilliant and the views are superb. Service was exceptional and all our requests were dealt with promptly and efficiently. we asked hotel to book us a speed boat for... More

I spent 4 idyllic nights here and it was amazing. 1) Room: I had booked the smallest room but they were kind enough to upgrade me for free, which was a lovely surprise. It was clean and spacious and modern. I found the air conditioning unit unusually loud so if I had it on, I slept with ear plugs. 2)... More

The maji is simply magical. I stayed 5night in an ocean view room. It's a nice privately set boutique hotel that sits above the sea level overlooking it. The beautiful Diani beach is vast and just gorgeous. The unique double sunbeds set up are a great plus. The swimming pool wraps around and through the boutique so naturally and provides... More

If you've never been to a Boutique hotel, start with this one and I guarantee you'll never go back to large hotels! My girlfriend and I stayed at The Maji for 2 nights, a weekend getaway. It did not feel like a hotel at all! And that's a good thing. No fixed meal times, no buffet meals, the pool is... More

The thing you immediately notice as you drive into The Maji is the feeling of coming home. The entrance is quiet, unimposing and down to earth, which feels like you're in your own drive-way. I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised! The boutique hotel opens up to the lobby, lined with an array of Masai craft... More

We stayed at the Deluxe Room, the room was very nice but not luxurious. It was very well kept by the hotel staff. The overall conditions of the hotel were very good, offering standard amenities such as gym, pool, bar and spa. The experience was very good and I strongly recommend the place. Although it is a boutique hotel due... More
