“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I tell you! this place was magical! electric!...yaani, one can use all the good words. They treated us as executives irregardless of stature, race, age, color, from the time we checked inn, all through the departure, no discrimination, ( at least us we weren't) Its a very entertaining place with their vast variety of activities.

Their customer service was wonderful, they deserve the title they won. This resort has invested in variety of activities that made the stay entertaining, from the restaurant, to the day to day when not at the restaurant. The water sports was just something else I will be looking forward to when we get their this year. The ambiance, clean beach water and white sand. The meals were fantastic! though one complain regarding the meal...hawa kuwa na Ugali kwa menu yao! We need ugali! Everything else was there and well done, and their array of salads!!!? oh my goodness! tutarudi uko tena!!! They treated us well, w-e en-joy-ed!

Dear Jermin,
Wow! This is such an ecstatic review! Asante Sana.
We are a true hospitality establishment and every single guest matters to us regardless of where they come from or who they are! We receive all our guests with open arms and we are glad you can attest to this. Our daily ‘’soft’’ animation programme is tailor made for all including the Little Leopards and is aimed at keeping you entertained throughout your stay and we are happy these activities appealed to you.
World Travel Awards has recognized us as Kenya’s Leading Resort for 4 years consecutively since 2010 and we pride in guests like you who take time to share their experiences with others. The Chui adventure centre offers all kinds of water sports from snorkeling to scuba diving, wind surfing, kite surfing, kayaking and Deep Sea Fishing, and our multilingual staff at the centre make your ocean adventure something truly special and we delighted you are looking forward to it this year.

Thank you for your compliments on food but we note with concern that your days of stay did not coincide with our Authentic Kenyan night where we feature dishes across all the 42 communities in the country. Besides we are very flexible and we can tailor make any request for guests at any time. Next time you stay with feel free to order Ugali any day and our Chefs will serve it to you with great pleasure.

We look forward to welcome you soon where the Leopards meet the Lobsters!

This resort is one of the best ive been to. The rooms are perfect, so neat, so cozy, every thing in the rooms was chosen to match the style of the hotel. The staff are very friendly pple, and even the cleaners know english. The welcome you get on arrival to this place makes you realise that you are in the right place, a warm face towel and cold cocktail juice all served with a smile as you are pleasantly checked in.
The meals were so good, we were on half board, but the dinners every night were the best specials. There was this one night when dinner was set at the beach....candle lit...this was my best, it was so beautiful.....so lovely and romantic.
Their swimming pool too is lovely and very well maintained, it can accomodate the young ones too which is an added plus.
Overall, leopard beach is the best beach hotel ive been to in kenya, and they really deserve their award for leading resort in kenya for almost 5years now.

Dear Prona,
What a nice review! Thank you.
We are truly humbled by guests like you who take their time to share their experiences with the world which we do not take it for granted at all. Yes you are right we have been voted Kenya’s Leading Resort for four years consecutively since 2010 and we just banked another very special award as Africa’s Leading Spa Resort.
The first impression is the lasting impression and we strive to ensure that our guests feel welcomed to a home away from home. We are delighted to ascertain that this indeed makes a difference and our guests take note of it. We endeavor to enhance guest experience at all times with genuine friendly kenya hospitality service and our staff are well trained to be able to communicate with our varied clientele from all over the world.
Our array of 14 themed buffet dinner are geared at a very dynamic meal experience throughout and we are delighted you found every night very special . Over and above this we have 4 ala carte restaurant where you can try different cuisines in different settings, we utilize the beach and our lush tropical gardens to enhance meal experiences and ambience.
Safety for our guest is of utmost importance and we ensure that the Little Leopards have their own pool well secured from the adult pool to protect them from any possible accidents. They also have their own playroom with dedicated attendants to guarantee you a more relaxed holiday.
We look forward to hosting you again soon also to the now opened The Residences; a distinctly up-market development of fully serviced villas set in acres of indigenous forest located within the Leopard Beach Resort & Spa.

We spent two nights at Leopard Beach Hotel just before the busy Christmas season. Despite being quite full it was easy to find a quiet spot to relax and all members of the family thoroughly enjoyed the charms of the beach, wonderful views and cooling sea breeze. The rooms were very comfortable and the food was enjoyed by all!

We are delighted to read your review……..Asante Sana! Celebrating Kenya @50 was a very special event to us at Leopard as it also marked the day we reopened the hotel last year after a 6months closure following a fierce fire. The 2013 awards were a milestone for us as we honoured the nation; voted Africa’s Leading spa Resort and Kenya’s Leading Resort by the World Travel Awards. Thank you for appreciating the efforts that went into the planning of this great event that was enjoyed by all. Special compliments to Regina, Mary and the animation team have not gone unnoticed and the team is highly applauded on your behalf.

We wish you a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2014 and look forward to host you and your family soon again.
