Msambweni Beach House & Private Villas has been designed in the Lamu style with whitewashed intricate features and high beamed ceilings. The property’s balconies, terraces, pontoons and infinity pools overlook the Indian Ocean and are the perfect spot to relax, watch the sunrise and enjoy a sundowner. The many wining and dining options are extended to Msambweni Beach House’s private beach and new lounge beach bar as well as a hidden cave, and, when the tide is right, a sandbank a little wade away.

We are 6 medical students doing our internship in Mombasa, when we met Fredrik of the Msambweni Beach House. He immediately arranged a luxurious good deal for us, perfectly within our wishes, needs and time schedule. When arriving, Terry did her best to make everything go smoothly and made us feel at home. It started with an extensive breakfast in what must have been the most beautiful spot on earth: the one and only table on the beach, just beneath the leaves of the trees, looking at the sea right behind us. We enjoyed our delicious spicy prawn and avocado toast or granola yoghurt, next to all types of jam, fresh juices and signature eggs. Cooling down in the beautiful pool and sun drying on the terrace was the perfect relaxation we needed, it almost seemed surreal... Our lunch was delicious, local and very refreshing during the hot midday sun. We would like to compliment the chef. Although we had a tight schedule, they all tried their best to serve us in the best way possible. We all left more relaxed, so they definitely succeeded in their purpose. As future doctors we can say that relaxation therapy here is most definitely recommended! Whenever we would visit Kenya again, this might become our standard go-to place.

Thank you for choosing Kenya to undertake your medical internship, and we are even more delighted that you spared some time to come and unwind in our special little paradise we are proud to call home.

We can't wait to host you again. Hopefully this time for a few nights so that you get to taste THE MSAMBWENI EXPERIENCE 🤗 Sincerely,

I desperately needed peace of mind to recharge my batteries with "pure unadulterated peace". I found this at Msambweni BH. Jesse was my first contact and he was thoroughly hands on. I was a lone traveller. I had contracted services of a local regional airline and I flew straight to Ukunda Airstrip, 40 minutes away from the house. This meant that I avoided the ferry crossing, thankfully. The Chauffeur was waiting with my name neatly put on a board. And that was the moment that I understood this was a VIP trip. Ushered into the waiting cool van and a short stop is made for me to buy a sun hat & cream, as in my hurry had forgotten to pack these. We arrive at this gate which opened promptly. I was craning my neck to take peeks around me as we drove onto the front yard. and joy hit me like a ton of bricks :). I could already see the turquoise sea beyond the inviting infinity pool ahead. I had already died a small death of happiness. My "standard" room was enormous, overlooking the pool/sea and had a large verandah with day beds. Evenings were an affair..cocktails with a fire by the sea in barefoot luxury. Flexibility for those who wanted some down time. There was discretion and an attention to detail that I marveled at. You might want to know if there was a complaint: yes, I had just one. That I had to leave! So if travelling as a family, group of friends, couple or other, rest assured this will be a home away from home. I will be back Frederick, Terri, Hamisi, Muzuki and team.

I actually can't gather enough words to describe this place, calling it paradise might be the best superlative honestly. We had one of the best beach holidays at The Msambweni Beach house, starting with the views, the service, the food everything about this place is just top notch. Edith, Chef Ali, Albert and all the MBH team you guys know hospitality to its very core. Thank You So much and we can't wait to plan another beach holiday with you guys in the near future. Private Villa 1 is the real deal :-) The owner Mr.Fredrick and his Father were very welcoming as well.

Awesome is an understatement. From the time we arrived at the hotel to the day we left we had an awesome experience. Staff members were courteous, clean, and knew their job. I loved my Villa and the privacy. Meal time was wonderful. The food was cooked and prepared to perfection including the plating. My kids had so much fun they remind me every other day to go back for another holiday. Kudos Msambweni Beach House and private villas team. I will definitely be back!.

Experience perfection & top-notch attention to every detail. Booking is full-board, all meals and water included. You order your breakfast, lunch and dinner the day before, so it is especially made for you, a bespoke gourmet experience, which I hope will be the first in Kenya to earn a Michelin Star. I hope you read this, Michelin Guide. And the wine is not expensive, fairly priced. Interior and exterior design is simple, ecologically inspired and modern. Every Villa (there are 3 Villas) or Master Room (there are 2) offers full privacy, with your private swimming pool. You feel at home, as if you own the place. It’s yours. You own it! Staff are super trained to respect privacy while always at your service, offering impeccable services. It's class. You can see and feel the staff are well paid, respected and happy. Most have been there since the start, or for the last 10 years. There's a meeting every Wednesday between the owners and the staff at 12.00 hours, to discuss how things were the last week, how to improve, and discuss last week’s guests’ experiences. It's a real boutique experience. The owners live there, so this is their home. They are welcoming you to their home, where you experience how they live, their little heaven. You can either have private dining or drinks by your private pool or balcony, or join the owners. Many of the owners’ family members & friends come there for holiday. You can join them, or dine or drink privately by the pool or garden in your private villa, or by the private beach, under a starry African night, soothed by the sounds of Indian Ocean waves. Here, you experience heaven on earth! And you want to come back again and again, or move here completely.
