Kinondo Poa is an excellent place for anyone who wants to keep distance from the resort tourism of the Diani beach. It has 4 bungalows only so you can enjoy your privacy at all times. Moreover, the service is truly amazing. Everyone from the manager through security to the waiter and the cook is doing their best to make your... More

Stayed with my wife for Christmas holidays. We experienced a very relaxing time far away from mass tourism. Coffee was always waiting for us on the terrace when we got up in the morning. We felt very safe during all our stay, so we often took a ride to Diani beach with some locals on the motorbike. A native village... More

Stayed at Kinondo Poa over Easter. Wonderful place, super friendly staff, best seafood ever, very clean pool and service. Well maintained garden, only 2 min walk to the private beach, no beach boys only friendly fisherman and children. We will come back.

I had a wonderful weekend at Kinondo Poa. The service & rooms were wonderful. I also liked the beach...it was not clustered with people or dirt. The food was delicious. The pool was also available to us 24/7 and i had the most wonderful morning swims.

What a find! Smiling faces greet you on arrival and immediately you can feel your stress levels melting away. A small, tranquil group of pretty rondelles surrounding the pool, set within well maintained colouful gardens. Loved the fact that meals can be taken either in the outdoor lounge area or on your own private verandah, always served with a smile.... More

My bf and i had a fantastic time at this lovely beach resort between 31st Dec and 3rd Jan 2015. With direct access to the beach, the views are amazing. The hotel has very few cottages and therefore, though all rooms were occupied during this period, it was still not crowded offering the much needed privacy for people who just... More

We were a group of seven, 3 couples and a brother. We stayed for 3 nights and the service was great, very friendly staff. The rooms were basic yet comfortable. The accommodation needs some tlc, particularly the bathroom but the pool, beach access and relaxed atmosphere made up for this. Small problems were quickly sorted out by Wilfred and his... More

Me and my girl have been in paradise for a week. The place as the rest of the south kenyan coast is wonderful,but stay here was an extra value. The "Holyday retreat" is intimate and cozy,surrounded by a luxuriant tropical nature,and only with 8 rooms gives you a personal exclusive feeling.... As customized is the service.....total free from haste....you can... More
