“It doesn't get much better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

One week at Kilili in the "low season" (end April) turned out to be blessed with "high season weather". All the way from management to staff the service and attitude are first rate. The food is good, the resort is picturesque and clean. The spa is amongst the best. We'll be back at the first possible opportunity! Greetings from Uganda/Norway.

we were a group of 8 Models hosted at the Kilili Baharini who were co Sponsors of the Annual Casino Malindi Fashion show.
Service at the Hotel is unsurpassed, we were treated like Royalty Thanks to the Director Mr. Bomoni, great staff Dismus, Steve just to mention afew. Food was great and had variety to select from, the spacious rooms were sparkling clean ,well ventilated and well equiped, the private swimming pools were a great thought for those who want to take a breather from the beach .
We loved swimming in the main swimming pool over looking the sea while enjoying our drinks from the pool bar that was also very well stocked, and taking time to relax on the moroccan style beach beds.
At night we could spend some time relaxing in the private swimming pool outside the room reviewing the day's events and planning for the next day.
The Director Mr. Bomon ensured our safety and comfort for all the days we spent there ,when the stay came to an end, he shared a cup of tea with all the models and even came to see us off.

Thank you Kilili for being a great host.

This place is outstanding beautifull,Rooms with big bathroom,dining,bar,beach with plenty very comfortable sunbeds.Security on the beach so no hassle from beachboys.
This is a very relaxing and romantic start of your holiday in Kenya .Most off the quest are Italian .
Every morning you get your breakfast serviced in front of your room were you have a very comfortable seat for your own.You have to fill in a list with the time when you want it the evening before.The place is big so not crowdy anywhere.It is a little bit more expensive then others but worth every Euro.
We walked along the whole beach and Kilili is defenitely the nicest part.Every morning beach is cleaned from seagrass.When the tide is low is not posible to swim but there are 2 large swimmingpools.Go for it.
