One of the nicest boutique hotels I've ever stayed in my life! As soon as you arrive you are greeted like family, and every effort will be spent to make you feel at home. The hotel is beautifully designed with several large infinity pools that look out onto the water. Whether you are traveling with friends, as a couple, or...

The location, the staff, the food, the facilities, the ambience.. perfect!. Not sure how a gem like this has remained under the radar for many Kenyans for this long. Would recommend it for families or couples seeking a beach getaway, quite simply out of this world. Special mention to Emmanuel and Eugene who played a part in making our stay...

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...

On the complete opposite end of reality, tucked away from the madness of every day life, this surreal gem of paradise lets you explore your inner child in you, to the romantic in you, to the explorer in you and can even awaken the writer/ artist/ musician in you if you give it the chance (and if you dont have...

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...

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...
