I cannot speak highly enough of this facility. The staff are so friendly and helpful - always there when you need them and discreetly invisible when you don't. The accommodation is wonderful, with stunning views. The food was excellent with every effort made to make sure we enjoyed it. We had our wedding here and took over the whole hotel....

Tucked away in the middle of rural Msambweni, this is a great place to get some much needed R&R, soak in the sun, enjoy the pool and the untouched beaches an the Indian Ocean Coast, while sipping on your drink of choice. Great place for large groups or families.

Msambweni Beach House (MBH) setting is amazing. The main villa, in which we stayed, has several bedrooms all ensuite. Our party comprised of 10 adults, 5 kids and 2 toddlers. The rooms were large and spacious. The beds for the adults were large and very comfortable for two adults to sleep in. Decor of the entire house is simple and...

This place is fantastic and you'll struggle to find a better accommodation option on the south coast of kenya. It's far from the crowds and feels very private and intimate. You can eat at any time, there are not fixed slots for food and you can choose every time where to have your table set for meals (room, beach, poolside...)....

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...
