Very friendly and professional staff at the reception and in the restaurant. Fantastic Ocean View from Family Bungalow №13. My family liked the service and food in the restaurant, privacy, tranquility, an excellent beach. Need a modernization of the bathroom equipment.

We expected a place as portrayed by their website (authentic luxury) but found something quite far from that. There were dogs and a cat in the dinning area begging for food while you are eating and hair on the couches, the power was out and the generators did not come on for the most part of two days (no lights,...

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Kichanga Lodge in Mid April. Expecting a rustic rural environment, were we overwhelmed. Turning off the main road at the sign that read Kichanga lodge, down a water pothole laden, gravel road, we were apprehensive. "Jambo" We were greeted by the most warm and welcoming of smiles by Gemma & Suzy. The...

My husband and I spent a week at Kichanga Lodge in April. We arrived as guests and left as friends. Incredibly warm, friendly staff lead by manager George. No request was too big or small. We had an ocean view room and it was perfect. Big room with your own dressing room and a lovely patio. There is no aircon,...

Staff was helpful, but George the manager went out of his way to greet the guests and remembered our names, and would always check on us to see if everything was okay, and if there was anything else he could do to make our stay comfortable.

Four days in the most peaceful, perfect slice of paradise. Kichanga Lodge from the moment I arrived to the second I left exceeded my expectations. The location is perfect if you want a serene, relaxing, stunning environment. Perfect for families, couples and solo travellers like me. It doesn't matter because the vibe of the place is peaceful, bungalows are gorgeously...

Hotel staff very pleasant and extremely helpful. Food average though the Swahili Dinner was very good. We felt is was over priced. Felt the absence of air conditioning as nights were hot and though there was a breeze outside it did not seem to affect the room. There are a lot of steps to climb to get to the beach,...

Splendid architecture of the common room and bungallows, fantastic view, quiet, excellent meals, welcoming staff. The rooms are big and comfortable and really clean (choose a bungallow with ocean view). The only problems: far away from everything and expensive drinks and activities.
