We had a wonderful time at Msambweni House - both the main house and the Private villas (there are 3 of them) are stunning. We especially loved the Private villa and the seclusion you get and all the private villas have their own swimming pools. The views from the hotel are awesome, the beach was beautiful and it was really lovely having our meal set ups at different locations during the stay. Loved the 'campfire' sundowners in the evenings and the food was superb. The chefs really listened to what we wanted and ensured that we had great, yummy food. The service is really personalised and the staff feel more like friends during your stay. This is a place for someone who wants to get away from the crowds and wants to totally unwind and relax.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The staff were extremely friendly and did everything possible to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Betty and Lucy made sure to check on us daily, not to forget all the waiters who always looked after us at meal times. Marcus the hotel animator, was superb! The hotel even got us a babysitter ( at an additional fee ) who was very caring. We will definitely be back.

This is by far our best Kenyan coast holiday experience. We stayed in villa 2 with my daughter & we felt so comfortable, secure and at home. The special crab dinner by the beach is a must have experience. The team will take time to set up a special candle lit dinner by the beach at a reasonable fee. Did i mention massage by the beach? Try this & thank me later! Overall a five star experience with great staff. We hope to return someday

Msambweni BH is a stunning property - the property overlooks a stunning private white sand beach with beautiful warm clear waters. Villa 1 has the most amazing infinity pool and the bedroom and bathroom are so luxurious. The food is 5-star level for every meal. The service of the staff was top-notch - everyone was so warm and professional. Lucy and Betty did an amazing job organizing our bike tour and snorkeling trip (some of the best snorkeling of our lives). This was the best beach vacation I have ever had, and the perfect way to end our east African honeymoon.

Customer service of the waiters is really good. Movement from Mswambweni to Diani is very pricey at the hotel. Need to negotiate better for live-in customers. The food portions need to be increased for dinner. The food is very delicious. The desserts are amazing. They need to create more activities within the hotel by the beach and create happy hour for drinks. Cleanliness is well maintained at the villas. Need to create room service for villas.

Dear team of Msambweni Beach House, thank you for creating a perfect holiday for us every time we visit... yes, after 3 stays with you, I still want more, so expect me back! The private villas with ocean views, beach lunches under an ancient baobab tree, dinner under the stars, an exclusive trip on a wooden dhow boat with a freshly prepared meal, beach walks with no one else around, ... and so much more... have made us love our holidays at Msambweni Beach House. Look forward to a next visit.

We had a amazing stay at the lovely paradise that Msambweni is. Our Ocean suite had a breathtaking view and every night we fell asleep with the ocean sounds. The chef is a superstar and cooked delicious vegan every day. The staff is superfriendly and the owner Frederik did everything to make our stay perfect. He also arranged the safari trips we did to Amboseli and Masai Mara parks.

I have spent 3 weeks at Msambweni Beach House. It was a unique travelling experience! I needed a moment to reconnect with myself and this was the right place. Everything contributed to create a feeling of total plenitude: the room, the beach, the pool, the high quality food, service and staff. I can’t wait to go back with my family to share with them this hidden treasure.

We had an extended stay here over Easter. The main beach house and rooms are stunning, with superb views of the pools, beach and ocean. We moved to a private Villa for a few nights which was also stunning with private pools, relaxation areas and ample space. The food from breakfast, lunch to dinner was exceptional and highly varied. And the cocktails - world class. But above the beauty and quality of the place, what stands out the most is the team. Frederik and Terry lead an amazing team of people who made this stay extra special. Can’t wait to be back at the next opportunity. And whilst it would be tempting to be selfish, perhaps next time we should bring the children as there is something for everyone at Msambweni Beach House!

In a word, wow! We spent three amazing days and nights here and were blown away by the experience. The staff is so wonderful, attentive and caring. Even going so far as to ask us after our first night if our mattress was comfortable enough, or if they needed to swap it out for another (it was plenty comfortable!) We were lucky enough to get to meet and chat a bit with the owner Frederick, he's a delight! We stayed in the main house in master suite #1, which was massive! The view from the veranda was incredible and we were lucky enough to enjoy breakfast up there one morning. Speaking of breakfast, the food at every meal was incredible. From the fresh fruit each morning, to the fresh caught seafood each night, we were truly spoiled! We were also surprised at how many options there were at the bar, from local beer, to wines and delicious cocktails, there is something for everyone! The beach and pool areas are both wonderful. We enjoyed walking along the beach and enjoying the natural beauty. We also were able to do a lunch on the beach one afternoon, we definitely recommend this! Lastly, we want to note how incredibly helpful the entire staff was in ensuring our safe travels home. Thank you so much for a memorable stay, we can't wait to visit again!
