I loved the great ambience, professional and empowered staff starting with the gate man to all the other staff. They even went ahead to even know who we are and would address me with my names. I will definitely be back.. The African touch was a bomb....

Came there, for a price for 3500 ksh, asked if they had wifi which they confirmed they had. Day after we claimed about that the shower in the room doesn't work and that the heater gives electric shocks. They said it will probably work day after so we stayed another night, the room offered no working shower not wifi so... More

We drove into Mombasa very exhausted and wanted a place on the beach to stay. We found Ziwa beach online and in the pictures it looked amazing! We checked in completely exhausted and took the double sea front room & had a short nap. On waking up and properly inspecting the room, we almost checked out in the middle of... More

The rooms are so unique with huge shells for bathroom sinks, spacious rooms, a huge balcony with a swing for the kids for relaxing, kitchenette to dabble in some cooking(help for hire available at a reasonable cost) and monkeys!! The best part though it's beachfront!!! So swimming, jet skiing, henna tattoos, shopping are a must 😀! Love it!!

I was completely blown away by the sheer amount of work that has gone into producing Ziwa Beach Resort. Compared to other hotels along Bamburi's beach front - well there is no comparison. Ziwa Beach Resort simply is one of a kind. With the bar area nearly spilling over onto the beach you can enjoy a drink and share in... More

Ziwa Beach Resort is more a boutique hotel than commercial holiday resort. It's ambiance and unique style is what sets it apart from the rest. The entire building is made up of a collection of reconstituted drift-wood, carved to various degrees of intricacy. During our stay a man was tasked with carving the columns in and around the bar. He... More

I had the most amazing experience staying at this resort. This place was tucked away in a beautiful area in Bamburi, Mombasa. I stayed here for 5 days and I enjoyed every minute of it. January was a lovely month to go. It wasn't too busy, and we had amazing service. The guest service was wonderful- they helped us carry... More
