The Flamboyant Hotel is described as boutique - never really sure what that means but it is a lovely, small and friendly hotel - just about ten rooms. Wonderful swimming pool, great breakfasts and rooms have everything required. We stayed in room 5 which is upstairs on the end, it has a lot of light and a small balcony which... More

The location at the beach is beautiful, although we had to make sure each day that the staff transported beach chairs down there for us. Nice garden, nice pool. Very calm and relaxing. The food is good, but nothing special. Meals take time as the service is rather slow. Staff was friendly, but not always around even at the "bar".... More

I think this is one the best places anyone could stay if they want a place that will cater for any of your needs. I has not had a holiday all year and so a friend booked out the entire place for a week. I could not have been happier. From a very simple pick up at the airport to... More

My partner and I have now been to Flamboyant three times. Yes it is dated. Yes it could do with refurbishment. That being said, it is still a relaxing and pleasant place to stay. Staff are friendly and do all that they can to please. The current downturn in trade is not the fault of Flamboyant ! Would I recommend... More

We were frustrated with the hotel. Although it does have advantages for being at the beach, and close to a popular bar and restaurant, it did not meet our expectations by far. The place has a charmless and aged décor, which does not relate to modern concept of “boutique hotel”, as it is called. The superior room could only be... More

The Flamboyant Boutique Hotel is simply beautiful - the perfect beach getaway! This small hotel caters to its guests with five star service. We stayed for three nights with another family from Nairobi (4 adults and 6 children). The pool and offshore rafts were a big hit with the kids. And the staff were very helpful. The food exceeded our... More

I have stayed at Flamboyant the last two years while working on the coast in Kenya. Both stays have been fantastic with the staff looking after all your needs. While I was there for work (lucky) I met couples from Canada and the UK who were loving the place for their vacations. Safe part of Kenya and lovely people to... More

The title says it all. Would highly recommend this place for a family holiday. We were on a family trip of 18 (mix of 80 year old grandparents, 50s parents, 30s kids and 1 yr old babies) and this place catered for everyone of us. We pretty much had hired the whole place. Amazing staff, amazing ambience and brilliant service... More

We were privileged to spend 3 nights at Flamboyant in September 2013. We were treated like royalty! The Hotel is clean, neat and beautiful, has it's own private entrance to the beautiful beach, staff are beyond friendly and our meals were fantastic. Nancy, Salim and Jeoffrey went out of their way to ensure we were happy, not thirsty, not hungry... More

I stayed at The Flamboyant 4 years ago. One because the owner George Barbour was a very longtime family friend of my family and used to rally with my uncle and grandmother and two, Flamboyant is Paradise. Fantastic hospitality, outstanding clean rooms, awesome service, beautiful decor, and spectacular view! Thanks George. I will return again one day! Pauline Collinge Chaney
