It is quite a drive from the Ukunda airstrip(40 mins). As we move along we go through the town and then a long stretch of road which eventually winds through a little village....A making you wonder if the place ure going to is also just a little shack. ... what a pleasant surprise when u drive through the gates.

Msambweni House is a home away from home. Freddie, the owner, has done an incredible job of creating a beautiful boutique hotel overlooking the gorgeous Indian Ocean in a lovely quiet part of Msambweni. The rooms are so comfortable. The food is so yummy. The ambiance is very relaxing. It's the perfect place to go away on holiday.

Gorgeous locations are oft described as heavenly, but this place cannot be oversold. You arrive to what is a modest entrance that only allows you to discover surprisingly what is surely a divine location that only continues to delight and inspire. The website does not do the hotel justice...all the villas have similarly designed interiors in simple but elegant swahili... More

The whole of our five day stay was excellent. The staff, our villa, food and of course the location were all great. Highly recommend, we will return for sure. The location is remote, which we liked and therefore not for someone wanting to party the night away. The hotel is a quiet haven. Ukunda airport is about 40 mins drive... More

I could tell you about the unparalleled Swahili style design of this place, built from the ground up by the owner whilst he was sleeping in a tent on the site - until it was exactly how he wanted it. I could tell you about how in Villa 3, I once got from my bed into the private infinity pool... More

Stayed at the hotel in August. We were happy with the upgrade and villa 1 is definetly the best villa. Concern was that the TV in our room had a problem and their food was average as compared to the other hotels we stayed at. It's good for families. Although the beach is a bit narrow. Most hotels give a... More
