Very good accommodation and nice meals in a clean and serene environment elegantly finished in modern style. Good entertainment packages, nice swimming pool overlooking the beach that stretches into the indian ocean. Just an excellent place to combine business and pleasure!

I traveled to Kenya for the first time in July 2011 for vacation (Solo) I booked the Kenya Bay hotel on Expedia because the rates were very low and I figured since I would only be staying there for two days i can handle anything before moving on to Nairobi and then a Safari. I arrived at about 3:00am in...
