We loved this place because you can just turn everything off and relax. There is WIFI if you need it (if you must) but we did not. The FOOD is great - you are essentially told what is for lunch and dinner though I am sure if you objected you would have a choice. We always ate what was on... More

We took our two toddlers to Kizingoni and stayed in the Frangipani Kabana. My 74 year old mother stayed in the High Tide Kabana up above the beach. Other than some stairs and slippery-when-wet floors our Kabana was fine for the little boys. It was the hottest time of year (March) but the rooms are open to the on shore... More

Kizingoni is stunning and extremely beautiful. Set in a quite section of Lamu,no beach boys so we had our dream beach holiday. The stuff we're super incredible and helpful always. The food so scrumptious. We had a wonderful time and truly relaxing especially for my husband just been away from the busy Nairobi life. I recommend kizingoni beach anytime.

We were lucky enough to spend three heavenly nights in Kusini house at Kizingoni Beach. The house is absolutely beautiful - very tastefully decorated and comfy. The staff were all wonderful and served the most delicious fresh seafood. There is time to relax and also plenty to do! Our children were furious to miss out as they were at school... More

We visited as a family in August 2014, despite the security warnings! Lamu island is a very special place, and seems unaffected by the goings on in Kenya, and the rest of the world! We stayed at Wazi Dubu House, which in our view is probably the best house on the beach - its a short walk on the sand... More

Lamu is an amazingly beautiful, friendly & peaceful (don't take the travel warnings too serious) island and Kizingoni beach, situated at the complete south end of the island, is paradise on earth. Haven't had such a relaxing & luxurious holiday in a long time. The houses are beautiful. They are very big, but because they fit so perfectly in the... More

Speachless…. the most beautiful beach holiday I ever had. A nice trip with a boat brought us to the far end of the island where no cars can come. The beach houses are set up very smartly and are kindly hidden behind the palm trees. The houses are spacious and very well maintained by the excellent staff. I could write... More

Aloha! Thank you for for your lovely review of Kizingoni Beach - we are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. It is great to hear that the beach is still perfect for kite-surfing, we hope it will be used much more by kiters in the future! Welcome back any time and thank you again. More
