"The photos don't do this place justice" I said to Giovanna the owner at the bar one night. "Maybe that's good, so people are more impressed when they arrive" was her clever reply. She has thought of everything. We arrived after a long days travel from Nairobi. Weary and tired our tuc tuc bobbled over the entrance gateway. And boom!... More

I've been to Malindi many times but only just found African House - I will certainly go back again! Set in beautiful leafy gardens, surrounded by amazing African art and endless Lamu beds, this is a beautiful (and romantic) place to spend a few days. With only 6-7 rooms it means you get loads of individual attention (breakfast and drinks... More

Returned to African House in February 2016 based upon our previous visit. So glad we did. Such an idyllic setting, wonderful staff and very comfortable accommodation. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and I can't praise them enough. If you're looking for a non stressful holiday, or a short break, Look no further. Definitely returning on our next... More

I have been to African House twice, and both my stays there were extremely pleasant. The decoration is unique and beautiful, the staff is very friendly, the pool and garden area are nice and clean, and breakfast is good and plenty. The beach is at a short walking distance. I can only recommend it!

The rooms all appear to be very spacious with very comfortable, large 4-poster beds. I found it to be very comfortable and relaxing, especially as the hotel is set some way back from the beach and the many other hotels and resorts along Casuarina Road. The rooms and the general decor of the place is set out with lots of... More

We spent 2 nights at the African House Resort. The rooms were spacious, cosy and authentic decoration. Very peaceful environment. Restaurant is quite pricey but the meals are worth trying. Wifi available at the reception area.
