The moment you drive into the hotel compound and especially if you are a frequent traveller, you can immediately tell that things are not all OK at KBH. To make matters worse, my work involves mostly helping businesses grow and this mostly has to do with identifying and dealing with whatever barriers there to achieving this growth so I can... More

A great decent facility with so much potential. Good rooms. Good food too. The service is however wanting. When i checked in this month, i requested the receptionist to get me a room with view to the beach. She gave me one that looked away from the beach.

I was last here in Sept 2014, and since then, things have gone down hill... Let's start with the good points: The staff are very helpful and eager to help. The location of the hotel is prime - a few minutes walk from Nakumatt Supermarket and a nice spot right on the beach. Value for money - but I guess... More

Be very careful booking this hotel. I stayed a week (seemed like a month) at the end of May 2015. The hotel itself is fine. The management and ownership are an entirely different matter. The power went out on day 3. Then the generator broke and stayed broken for the rest of my time there. No air conditioning, no running... More

We would like to thank Mr. Don from Dallas, Texas for the report about his stay with us. It is unfortunate that the main power supply in the entire region ceased and the backup generator cold not put up efficiently with the occupancy of the hotel during that time. It is not true that there were only ten clients inhouse... More

This is a good value for money hotel especially for families. Lots of activities going on. Different bistros, bars and lounges. Good variety of food for all tastes. Nice architecture which fits nicely into the surrounding area even though the complex has over 100 rooms. The hotel is not new so the rooms are not of type "sterile new chique"... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Kaskazi Beach Hotel. Kaskazi Beach Hotel is a Four Star beach resort conveniently located in Kenya’s world famous South Coast on the Diani Beach line, and only a short walking distance from the beach area shopping centre, restaurants, and banks. The resort has been turning moments into memories for our guests for over 18 years. The resort's magnificent architecture (modeled after 5th century Sunni Arab palaces), coupled with the ingenious use of the landscape to create cascading ocean view terraces surrounded by hanging gardens makes it a one of a kind resort in all of the East African coast line. THE RESORT EXPERIENCE: Kaskazi Beach Hotel provides unparalleled options and unique experiences to our guests, from on foot beach tours exploring surrounding beaches and venues, to onsite resort experiences including three restaurants, three bars and lounges, all day long sports and activities provided by our entertainment team, nightly entertainment, a kid's club, and so much more. Other Activities: For sightseers and adventurers alike, guests will have ample "must do" activities such as swimming with wild dolphins at our neighbouring Wasini Island, visiting the ancient port city of Mombasa (Old Town) where one is taken back to a time long lost as the charming city retells its history through its ancient buildings, tiny streets laden with colourful shop fronts and restaurants, and of course, the famous remains of Fort Jesus. For those who want to explore the Diani Beach night life, take one of our resort’s taxi cabs to the famous Ali Barbour and The Forty Thieves beach bar and dance club located only a five minute drive from the resort. There you can dance under the stars and directly on the white sands of Diani Beach. Why choose this resort: The fact that over 50% of our guests are repeat guests who have come to Kaskazi Beach Hotel two to three times a year for over 18 years says a great deal about us. Otherwise, our great and all too caring staff who are always eager to assist you, our excellent cuisine (rated the best in the South Coast by Europe’s largest Travel Agency, TUI), our flexibility in Meal Plans (All-Inclusive or Half-Board), our extremely reasonable rates, and our convenient location, will ensure that you get everything and more than you expect. ... more   less
