Its ideal location away from the road creates a peaceful atmosphere, the lodge has good food with alot of sea food varieties. The customer service is top notch and the waiter 'newton' makes you feel at home. The rooms are simple and clean, No TV in the rooms make the lodge more of a bonding and relaxing destination. A good lodge for those escaping from bustle and hustle of the city...

My wish to discover the Kenyan coast came true in the best way possible when I spent a fortnight with a friend at the KolaBeach Resort in Mambruj/Malindi. The spacious room was well furnished in African style and located in one of the various villas, surrounded by a well kept luxuriant park - a true delight to enjoy the many palm trees amids blossoming buganvilleas. Very good room and cleaning service and prime bar service at the pool. The property is directly located next to a wide white beach stretching for miles, where I could have undisturbed walks along the shore, something which seems to be a rarety in the area. The sea and the beach-beds area were clean and inviting. The personnel is kind, thoughtful and always at disposal for any need. Every meal was a highlight of superb food, mainly Italian with some well prepared local specialities. I appreciated the quietness and the refined style of the KolaBeach which allowed me to spend a great time and feel relaxed and secure all the time. The management and front desk proved to be up to any task, kindly and professionally. I definitely recommend this resort.

We stayed there over Christmas 2019 for 7 nights. The place itself is amazing however basic things such as AC's and Fridges need to be upgraded they are falling apart. The kitchen in the villas need more utensils as well. We had also paid for a chef to cook for us but we're really disappointed to find out he could barely cook any food.

It was our first time at Kola Beach Resort and it is unforgettable ! The resort as such is simply beautiful. The room we stayed in was very luxurious and thoughtfully designed. The food was exceptional - Italian cuisine at it's finest. The General Manager Mr. Procopio and his staff took care of all our wishes and needs at any time. We will come back and can highly recommend Kola Beach Resort !
